Pleasant Acre hopes to hit the road

Bright lights, big city, here we come!

Pleasant Acre Day School is once again bustling with excitement.

To some people, a few days on the Gulf Coast may not seem like a big vacation, but to the physically and mentally challenged students at Pleasant Acre, it is an event they await eagerly year after year.

Pleasant Acre Day School, a school for mentally challenged adults, will be taking its summer trip to Biloxi, Monday, May 24 through Thursday May 27.

This fun in the sun trip finalizes their year of life skills, life enrichment and community interaction activities.

The students enjoy the social experiences as any visitor to the Gulf Coast, such as traveling, sightseeing, swimming and patronizing motels and restaurants. This is truly a life enriching experience for them.

But in order to make this trip a reality for these students, we need help from sponsors to fund the costs.

Support from businesses or individuals will be greatly appreciated and will enhance the lives of these special students by broadening their horizons and granting them a well-deserved vacation.

Anyone out there willing to contribute to our Gulf Coast trip can mail donations to Pleasant Acre Day School, P.O. Box 1362, Natchez, MS, 39121 or you can call the school.

We thank you in advance for you continued support of Pleasant Acre Day School.
