Construction of a new wooden fence at the Winona DAC will be complete by the end of the week.
The new fence will completely enclose the DAC's backyard and make the yard more accessible to the 59 clients with developmental disabilities that currently attend the center. The added barrier will also prevent the deer from raiding the client's garden.
DAC Executive Director, LaVern Scharmer says the next project for the backyard will be to install some activities for the clients to use in this expanded and safe area.
Funding for the fence was made possible through a $2,500 Community Grant that was awarded in July from the Winona Community Foundation.
The Winona DAC provides day training and habilitation services to clients with developmental disabilities throughout Winona County.
