70th Walk with Walker Promotes Tourism During Stop at Lakeside Park


Wisconsin’s First Lady Tonette Walker was in Fond du Lac on Tuesday to host another Walk with Walker – promoting tourism around the state and right here in our area. Walker tells us she chose Lakeside Park for a landmark walk because of its proximity to Lake Winnebago. 

She says “that’s really what we try to do, is pick spots that people really don’t know about so that we can showcase them. So it’s been all over the state, and this is our 70th walk.”

Walker also tells us every walk is a bit different because there are such diverse locations all over the state. She points out that “some have trails, some that don’t – we were in the woods, we’re not in the woods – we’re climbing up to the waterfall – so all of them are different. So this one is our first night walk like this, this twilight walk, and I’ve always wanted to do it all these years. So finally I said we’re going to knock that night one out. And who thought it would be eighty degrees out? It’s supposed to be crisp and cool walking in October.”

But Walker says her favorite part of the walks is talking with people about the things going on in communities around Wisconsin. She says “I think people love – they’re proud of where they live. They’re proud of their community. And what I get to see is people coming out to say ‘I live here, I’m proud of what goes on here, I’m proud of the things my community is doing’ – and they want to showcase it. And I think that’s the best part about it – is getting to hear all about that.”
