Modern Woodmen members, Chapter 5458, joined hands with the Next Chapter Book Club June 4 to plant a lovely flower garden at the Brick House Shelter.

The shelter, at 320 N. Hinde St. in Washington C.H., helps any family that is facing homelessness in Fayette County, including single women, children, couples with children, and single parent families. Gaye Huffman and staff strive to make the Brick House Shelter “feel like home” and this bright and colorful flower garden will help make the Brick House a warm and inviting home.

The Next Chapter Book Club, a national book club for adolescents and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, has a reading club in Washington Court House through a partnership with The Carnegie Public Library and the Fayette County Board of DD.

The group gets to know one another, discuss the books they read as well as their personal interests, and they select the books to read as a club.

For information about the Fayette County Board of DD’s local chapter or to become a volunteer facilitator, please contact Tim Stewart, Community First coordinator, at 740-335-1391 ext 218.
