Texarkana, USA – The Battle on the Border will once again arrive in Texarkana, USA this Saturday at noon. Spring Lake Park will be the host site for bands, a chili cook-off and a 5K run. In addition to this “Battle” events, the event will also host a variety of games and contest.
In our digital age of televisions, electronic games, online gaming, and picture driven advertising, reading is often overlooked. Reading is still an important need for children and adults. Proceeds from Battle on the Border goes to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. The organization provides books for children. Reading at an early age is an important way to promote a love of books, and reading in children.
The United Way of Greater Texarkana is involved and more information about the event, including sign ups, sponsors, etc. can be found online at http://texarkanaunitedway.org/Battle-On-The-Border
Come out this Saturday, join the fun, and help put books in the hands of our next generation of readers!
