An area care facility is being recognized for its work in the community.
New Lexington Mayor Janine Conrad presented a proclamation to Mount Aloysius on Monday at its community appreciation day. The facility provides services and support for adult males with developmental disabilities.
"I was very glad to be a part of the community appreciation day. Mount Aloysius does a significant service to the community and the surrounding communities," said Mayor Janine Conrad.
Mount Aloysius Public Relations Representative Dee Dee Dodson said it’s a wonderful compliment to be recognized for their work. She said right now they are raising funds for the 2011 men’s activity campaign.
"We’ve already had three on three basketball tournaments, we had a meet and greet for the Chamber of Commerce and we will be having a dance Saturday night at Prophets Park," said Dodson.
The event was sponsored by Century National Bank.
