Pine Knob Elementary kicked off March Reading Month with a dog sled demonstration, courtesy of Al and Katie Fritzler of Clio.

Phy-ed teacher Anthony Taormina invited the Mid Union Sled Haulers Sprint Club members and their dogs Trapper, Shark, Tank, Sparkle, Hershey, Meah, Minzey, Chunk, and Shasta to the school, March 3.

"I remember see a dog sled demonstration when I was in elementary school," Taormina said. "It's a cool idea. Now when the kids read the book 'Balto,' they'll know what a dog sled team is like."
