Bridges Foundation hails re-opening of its center
The Bridges Foundation celebrated the grand re-opening of its Outsource Center with a recent open house. The renovation of the center, 1345 N. Lewis Ave., was completed in January and provides a beautiful work center for the foundation’s clients. The Outsource Center employs 30-50 people with developmental disabilities who seek to learn a trade and improve their job skills. Area businesses like IC of Oklahoma, Cintas, Mercury Marine and John Zink outsource jobs to the center, which are then completed by Bridges’ clients. The four-month renovation project improved virtually all aspects of the work area including new restrooms, lighting, windows, flooring and

ON THE SE THINGS

Bright yellow prevails in all directions — forsythia and bunches of jonquils are blooming everywhere. We want to think spring is here to stay, but it keeps running away until it has made an adjustment in the temperatures. Onions and garlic have been planted, and next comes radishes and lettuces. Wildflowers, at least those that are close to the ground, now cover the slopes. Given a few warm hours, others will join in and spring will truly appear. To some, a dandelion is something to dread, but on a cold morning walk, one little dandelion brings on a smile and a warmer feeling. In times past, I have sensed that some people thought it hilarious that they were all dressed up and going out to dinner and I was pushing a lawn mower. I wanted to push the lawn mower and put out pots of flowers and enjoy what I accomplished. One little girl commented that her mama didn’t have to mow — poor thing. I loved it.
