Service recipients worked on their activities and outcomes on Monday, April 7 and Tuesday, April 8. The eighth grade GEMS from Brighton Middle School helped cleaned the center this past weekend.

Saturday, April 12, some of the staff, service recipients and parents came out to the center for a ribbon cutting ceremony for the vegetable and flower garden teaching garden. We want to thank those in the community and the county for their support. We are making great strides and improvements. The public is invited to come see the garden and all that is being done here at the center, located at 3373 Highway 59, West Covington and the phone number 475-3999.
We will also be raising all kinds of animals here at the center. A big thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Tim Ammons, from Oleo Farms out in Stanton, for helping us with this worthwhile project. Everyone appreciates it very much; thank you again for the kindness and love that you have shown us.
