Aurora's Dominican Literacy Center invites area walkers to an International Women's Day walk in North Aurora on Saturday, March 8.

Sister Kathleen Ryan, the center director, said admission is free to the walk at North Aurora's Island Park, off State Street.

The walk is the third of three events staged by the DLC since September to mark the 20th anniversary of its founding.

According to Sister Ryan, the walk will open at 9:30 a.m. with comments by her and Amy Manion of Sugar Grove, center advisory board president. They will welcome walkers and discuss the purpose of the walk. From 9:40 to 10 a.m., Marianne Renner will lead warm-ups including stretching and Zumba dance moves.

The walk will kick off at 10 a.m. when walkers follow a path at Island Park.

The walk will conclude at 10:30 a.m. with a yoga cool-down, refreshments and closing remarks by Sister Ryan.
