Midnight Farm opening is today

May 6, 2010

Community Living Opportunities’ “Midnight Farm” will celebrate its Grand Opening with an open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony on May 6 from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. The ribbon cutting will be at 5:30 p.m., with a few words from CLO's CEO, Dr. Michael C. Strouse, as well as from Ken Wagner, mayor of Baldwin City, and Hank Booth, representing the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce. Midnight Farm is located at 2084 N. 600 Road, just a few miles northeast of Baldwin City.

Activities at Midnight Farm will include tours of its new 22,000-square-foot lodge, in-door arena and stables, a riding demonstration by therapeutic riding program students, and draft horse wagon rides for a special view of the farm. There also will be plenty

of opportunities to pet and interact with Midnight Farm's horses and farm petting animals.

Midnight Farm provides rural living, working, therapeutic and recreation opportunities for children and adults with special needs and is operated by Community Living Opportunities (CLO). CLO provides a full array of life-span services and supports for more than 400 individuals with developmental disabilities in eastern Kansas, primarily in Lawrence and Johnson County.

All community members are invited to attend the celebration. RSVP on-line at www.midnight-farm.org.
