Lovingworth calendar released
A calendar of activities has been released for what is being called Lovingworth: A Community that Cares.
Lovingworth will offer a series of community activities throughout September in the city of Leavenworth.
Lovingworth is replacing the city’s Camp Leavenworth festival, which was canceled this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Activities will begin Sept. 1. Activities will be set up along the pathway of Landing Park throughout the month. The activities along the pathway will include silly walks and dances as well as hopscotch, according to the Lovingworth section of the Camp Leavenworth website.
A month-long passport program also will begin Sept. 1.
Leavenworth residents will receive passport booklets in the mail. The booklets will list a number of local businesses. Each person who visits at least 15 of the businesses by Sept. 30 will be eligible to receive a free Lovingworth merchandise item.
A Love Your Neighbor Day event is planned for Sept. 8. Leavenworth residents will be encouraged to do things to show their love for fellow members of the community. And residents will be invited to share information about their observances of the event on social media using #Lovingworth, according to the Lovingworth section of the Camp Leavenworth website.
A sidewalk chalk art contest is scheduled for 5 p.m. Sept. 10 at Landing Park. The event is free but participants will need to register.
