The Earle Baum Center is re-opening

July 23, 2021

The center is excited to announce the expanded reopening of our 17-acre property for both indoor and outdoor use. This week we resumed all in-person client services and social activities, including on-site training and programs, along with use of our picnic tables, walking trail, and labyrinth.

“Over the past year, technology has enabled EBC to stay connected with our clients, but it does not replace the experience of being in-person with others,” said Bob Sonnenberg, CEO of Earle Baum Center. “Many folks in our community have found the last year to be isolating, so it is more important than ever that we begin to come together safely and in-person to learn new skills, be with friends and have fun.”
