I The Mental Health Association, which has long sought the estab- lishment of classes for ~etarded children of Jefferson County, I heard a full report in NovemberI by Donald Mickey for the Jei]~er-" son County Board of Education. Mr. Mickey reported that five classes have been established in the existing schools of the coun- ty for 55 children previously in grades 4 through 6. He reported that plans have also been made for others, aged 6-10, not able to attend schools, but that the im- plementation of this awaits the finding of a certified teacher. In the meeting Monday night at the Zion Episcopal Rectory, representatives of the Jefferson County Association for Retarded Children met with the Mental Health Association to request financial aid for a school for children which will not be served by the public school programs. The Rev. William Brook, Vicar of Grace Episcopal Church, Mid- dleway, read a letter from the l~ev. Lynn Buttorff describing the scope and purpose of the propos- ed "School of Hope," of which Mr. Buttorff would be Director. It would be housed in an unused building in Middleway, belonging to Grace Church, from which it would be leased. It is hoped that structural rennovations could be completed in the middle or late winter and that the school could immediately get underway. Mrs. Raleigh Moler, President of the Association for Retarded Children, was present at the meet- ing to answer questions, as was Mr. Mickey, who amplified his November report. The Mental Health Association voted unanimously to guarantee $100 per month for four months operation of the School of Hope in 1968, whenever it gets under- way. A budget of $2,000 for a January-to-June operation of the school was included in Mr. Butt- orff's letter.
