Funding for Ceramic Kiln

One of the many activities we offer here at the Senior Day Program is ceramics, it is one of our favorite activities.  The Ceramic Program enables frail older adults and individuals with mental and physical limitations to be able to be creative and make ceramic items.  Ceramics is one of the many ways that some of our participants are able to provide their loved ones with a gift at special times, such as Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries, or just because.
