The observance of March as Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month was kicked-off Thursday, with the Richland County Commissioners issuing a proclamation. The theme this year is Abilty@Work. This is an opportunity for the individuals Richland Newhope serves to show how much they can do, in the workplace and in society in general. Also on hand were Mike Bailey, manager of the new City Garden Cafe' at Mansfield City Hall, and Chief Cashier Ryan Stephan. The cafe' not only gives city employees a place to go for breakfast and lunch, it serves as a training ground for a dozen Newhope individuals who plan to work in the restaurant business.
