Sunshine needs space to store equipment, lum- ber and finished products produced in its wood shop and plant nursery. Bob Dalton, a board member and leader of the $600,000-plus project, said the project is in the sec- ond of three phases and that, as soon as permits are procured, concrete will be poured for foundations and other infrastructure. The new cam- pus will include a 7,680-square-foot main building and 3,000-square-foot woodworking shop and storage fa- cility. "This has been a dream of ours for a very long time," said Dalton, whose daughter is a Sunshine client. "To get here has been a journey and it continues to be a journey." Freddy Bratton, 30, who has been a client at Sunshine for 12 years, said the ground-breaking was something he and others had been looking forward to. "It's going to help us a lot," he said of the new facility. "We need a new building, actually. The one we have now, it's old and falling apart. It's been there since 1974, about 38 years." Currently funded by govern- ment grants, income from work con- tracts and local contributions, Sun- shine began in the early 1970s as a parent-operated activity center and, Photos by Scott Swanson Celebrating the groundbreaking are Sunshine staffers and clients, in front from left, Nick Wilson (hands folded); Geneva Henry (in sweater) and Harold Drew (wheelchair).

"We're still up in the air. We're still short," he said, adding that the local fund-raising goal is $40,000. Dalton announced at the ground- breaking ceremony that he had just been handed a check for $4,000 from his in-laws, Bob and Mona Waibel, which, Thompson said later, represents the first 10 percent of that local goal. "I think it's really do-able," Thompson said. He encouraged any prospec- tive donors to check Sunshine out, in person and on its website, sunshi- neindustriesunlimited.com. "We need people to come down and see our project and visit us at Sunshine and see what their money is going to," he said. "I think if they come to Sunshine and see what our staff is doing with our Clients, they will be impressed. They will see what kinds of things have happened and what we're doing." i iiii!I 1 O# $4.99 25# $10.99 50# $19.99 The family of Keegan Burnett wouldlike to thank everyone for the cards, flowers, food, prayers, support and love that has been shown to us since Keegan's death.
