This Little Light Learning Center conducted a ground breaking ceremony at 4 p.m. Wednesday, May 2. About 20 children and numerous adults gathered at 534 Yates St. in Mount Vernon for the event.
The children, ages two to eight years, used kid-sized shovels to turn the dirt. Owner Debbie Carrell and her husband, David, were on hand for the shoveling, too. Having operated a day care out of her home, next door for more than seven years, Mrs. Carrell stated that she hopes to be operating in the new facility before the start of school this fall.
