THE NEW CLC BUS IS FULLY FUELED AND HAS ARRIVED!
Our new yellow school bus was delivered the morning of April 24, 2015, and IT IS BEAUTIFUL. Built-in child safety seats will make field trips with our toddlers and preschoolers much comfortable, yet still allow for a maximum number of school-age riders as well. This new vehicle was built specifically for our Center, down to the driver-side door and dashboard air conditioner. Thank you to everyone who helped to raise funds for this wonderful new vehicle. The eight daily trips this bus makes will be smoother and easier than ever!
