Sensory Garden For The Blind

This project is a joint venture between the Williamson County Master Gardeners Association and members of the local Lions Clubs.  The garden will feature plantings which call attention to the five senses - taste, smell, touch, hearing and sight.  The organizations are working cooperatively with the Williamson County Parks and Recreation Department.  The Garden is located at Grassland Park, near Manley Lane and Hillsboro Road.

Tennessee School for the Blind receives "Gimpys Secret" in Braille 

When Elaine McClellan spoke to the Williamson County Lions Club telling about her book, “Gimpys Secret,” the story of a physically challenged chicken that taught a little girl the universal truths in learning how to love, it started a process that resulted in bringing four copies of the book in Braille to the Tennessee School for the Blind library.

The Williamson County club contacted school Superintendent, Lion Jim Oldham, and facilitated with Mrs. McClellan the project to get the book transcribed into Braille for the students. This is the first Braille printing, but the necessary electronic codes can be available to other institutions for the blind or sight impaired.
