For those of you that don’t know, I am an occupational therapist working within the pediatric realm, mostly in the schools. At the time I had several high school students with developmental delays and one of the goals is to assist them in getting ready to transition from school to the work force. Village of the Blue Rose is a great little bed and breakfast and restaurant between Clarksville and Louisiana Missouri off of scenic Hwy 79 (for reservations call 573-242-3464 or 573-242-3539). Village of the Blue Rose employs adults with developmental delays providing a loving work environment and housing for those that may not otherwise find employment. Right up my ally! By year three I had a wonderful volunteer staff that took a lot of stress off the preparations and wondering how was I going to pull off another event. . . with volunteers of course!
