“Friends are the Sunshine of Life”
That is the motto of the newly formed Sunshine Social Club and Sunshine Barn.
It all started seven years ago when Lisa Batts visited Down Home Ranch in Texas. “I couldn’t get my mind off of it” Lisa told me. Lisa also realized, as so many of us do, that when her son Aron got out of School there was little to nothing for him to do. Not only were there not many options for Aron, but not many for Lisa’s adult cousin, who also happens to have Down Syndrome. So Lisa began sharing her vision for a smaller version of Down Home Ranch in Boone County, Indiana. Lisa’s uncle, Fred Cooney, a local Mass Avenue developer, entrepreneur, and artist could see Lisa’s vision and wanted to help.
