POMEROY — Whether spending time with others who have disabilities, or trips to any number of places throughout the area, Inclusions is providing opportunities for those with disabilities.

On Saturday, the community was invited to an open house at Inclusions, providing an opportunity to talk with the individuals who attend Inclusions, as well as see some of the things the individuals take part in.

Art work on display and available for purchase, and a wreath for a door prize were all created by those at Inclusions.

Mary Miller, who operates Inclusions, said that art classes have been taught by Aliah Gant, a senior at Rio Grande, and Sharon Dean from the arts council, as well as another individual attending art classes in the community.

Participants in Inclusions do not only take part in activities at the space in Pomeroy, but attend outside events and activities, including Wildlights at the Zoo, the Circleville Pumpkin Festival, lunch outings, craft shows, bowling, an OU basketball game and many other places.
