Acton Garden Club and Best Buddies
October 13, 2012
The Acton Garden Club and the AB Buddies made use of a lovely Saturday afternoon recently outside Acton Boxboro Regional High School. As part of the Gardening with Young People Program, Jill Groener, Jean Lane and Ruth Schemel taught the very enthusiastic high school students how make lovely dried hydrangea wreaths. AB Buddies is a program at the high school which pairs typical students with ones with disabilities to foster friendship and peer relationships.
Best Buddies is an international organization providing those with intellectual and cognitive disabilities opportunities to meet and socialize with same age peers without disabilities.
