Association for Retarded and Handicapped of Hardin County, a non-profit organization serving special needs individuals of Hardin County and operating Project L.E.A.RN. and the Summer Recreation and Retention Program, would like to publicly acknowledge work recently done to the facility at 225 College Street Road in Elizabethtown.
The parking lot adjacent to the building was in very poor condition. The asphalt had many bumps, holes and was very uneven and hard to negotiate, which made it almost impossible for wheelchairs, walkers or individuals with mobility problems to negotiate the parking lot.
The county responded almost immediately and agreed to prep and repave the parking lot. In addition to the repaving, the county tore down and removed an old metal storage building, allowing more space around the building. The county also removed old asphalt and refilled with dirt, allowing us to sow grass in an area, which will be used as a recreation area for clients. Both of our programs will be positively affected by these changes.
We are extremely grateful to Hardin County Judge-executive Harry Berry, fiscal court magistrates and county workers for making this a reality. Improvements will greatly enhance the operation of both programs, making it easier to access the buildings and giving additional space for the recreation of clients. Without the assistance of the county, we would have been unable to make these changes. Once again we are extremely grateful for all the county’s time, equipment and materials used towards the improvement of our facility.
