DELPHOS —More than 52,000 children were home schooled in Ohio during the 2012-13 school year. While the curriculum can be similar as those attending traditional classes, the time left over for parents and children to enjoy social and enrichment activities can be limited.

To compensate for the lack of enrichment opportunities for home schooled students, the Delphos Area Art Guild (DAAG) has set its homeschooling curriculum for the 2014-15 school year with offerings of Art, Music Ensemble, French and Art History classes.

“These are once-a-week supplemental classes for home schooled children,” Director Shauna Turner-Smith explained. “This classwork gives them the opportunity for social experience.”

VAN WERT — Some facilities at the Van Wert County Fairgrounds have been in the same location for so long, nobody is really sure how long they have been in that spot. The old Rabbit Barn had been in place for an estimated 125 years before being torn down this summer. The age was estimated because no one could determine exactly when it was built. The Farm Bureau Food Tent building is closer to 50 years old, and this year will be it’s last.

The Farm Bureau Food Tent Building will be moving to a new location. Actually, the Farm Bureau is moving to a new building. It will be built on the current site of Babyland, across from the Dairy Barn.

VAN WERT – The Marsh Foundation ‘Marsh Grown’ garden program celebrated the end of the summer growing season with a Harvest Meal for staff, peers and Trustees. The meal was held recently at the First Presbyterian Church in Van Wert and featured many items grown in The Marsh Foundation garden as well as other local products. It was entirely prepared by the garden crew.

According to Marsh Foundation activities coordinator, Sherry Grone, this year’s program has been very successful in her eyes. “Our crew has had the chance to grow in maturity, responsibility and respect through our garden program,” she said. “I also hope they have grown in respect for themselves as they develop new confidence through their job skills. One of the program’s goals is to guide them to a hope for their future; to help them connect to the larger community and find their place and maybe even their passion in the process.”
