Bowling fun was had by all when the clients from New Haven School visited the Action Lanes bowling alley in New Albany on Wednesday, February 11, 2009. Action Lanes allows the clients to come bowling twice a month.
In addition to bowling, they also participate in Tai Chi, going out to eat once a month, walking on the track at the Baptist Healthplex, and visiting the Union County Library and the Union County Heritage Museum.
“The more things we are exposed to, the better. It enriches their lives and we like to expose them to activities that they might not otherwise get to participate in. We also provide them with physical education and are able to introduce them to more people in the community as well,” said Collett Cross, director for New Haven School.
There are 19 clients between the ages of 19 and 65 that attend regularly. The cost is $20 a month. This year is the 47th year that New Haven School has been in operation. “This year we have had the highest enrollment we have had in 15 years or more. I think that is because more people are aware of the school and families are seeing this school as something positive for their loved ones to be involved with. Our school also provides clients with a a social and active environment,” said Cross.
