Travel through time on a scavenger hunt. In celebration of the park’s history, we’ll dig through the Camp Gallion Dispatch — the newspaper written by the young African-American men who created the lakes here — to find stories, drawings and other items. Then use these elements as inspiration to make a 1-page newspaper about your own life.

Hosted by the Twin Lakes State Park the event will be held Saturday from 3-4 p.m. Meet at The Spot concession stand. The event is suitable for children. For more information contact the park office at (434) 392-3435 or visit www.dcr.virginia. gov/state-parks/twin-lakes.
