Five students from Lackawanna Trail High School recently joined forces to build a garden for clients at St. Joseph’s Center in Scranton. The project was conceived by Nicholas Miller, whose half-brother, Jeremy Weitz, is a center client. Miller realized that the clients didn’t have a place where they could enjoy fresh air. Doug LaCoe and Ron Stacknick from the Dalton Lumber Do-It Center helped design wheelchair accessible tables for the gardents, while Corky’s in Justus donated plants and Creekside Gardens in Tunkhannock donated a water fountain. All features were designed to help clients with sight, sound and feel.
St. Joseph’s Center’s annual summer festival will be held from 4-10 p.m. on Friday, July 25, and Saturday, July 26. On Sunday, July 27, the festival will be held from 1-9 p.m. Call St. Joseph’s Center at 570-963-1290 or visit stjosephscenter.org for more information.
