BETTY RUSSELL “SMOKES EM”
A Potential Super Star in Waiting!!
Betty Russell of the Betmar Shuffleboard Club smoked the competition at Betmar on Monday, June 26th winning the Mingles/Singles Shuffleboard championship. We may have a superstar in the making as she won all six games at the Zephyrhills Club last week and won all eight matches at Betmar this week. She had some close matches but pulled them all out some with the very last shot.

Building Blocks Ministries has created a new community partnership with the Clermont Shuffleboard Club.
Individuals in the Health & Wellness class at Building Blocks Ministries started visiting Kehlor Park in April to learn how to play shuffleboard. The original plan was to complete eight weeks of instruction and play. After eight weeks of playing the group of volunteers at Clermont Shuffleboard extended the offer for individuals at Building Blocks to continue playing weekly. In addition to learning the game, individuals in the Health & Wellness Class are now learning how to care for the court. Peter Hornbuckle, Program Manager at Building Blocks Ministries is grateful for the partnership as it offers more than just learning how to play a new sport, it provides an opportunity for the individuals to access their community and connect to clubs and activities in the community.
Building Blocks Ministries’ vision is for full inclusion and participation of individuals with developmental disabilities in all aspects of our community. Executive Director Paula Whetro is encouraged by the partnership as it aligns the vision that the organization had over ten years ago when they began their work in the south Lake County area.
Building Blocks Ministries’ mission is “to serve individuals with developmental disabilities and their families to dream, believe and achieve; through advocacy, coalition building, and job and life skills training in a safe and trusted environment”. Building Blocks has been serving the community since 2006 and is located at 548 S. Highway 27, Suites B & C, Minneola, FL in the Trailside Plaza next to Graphics Direct. Building Blocks Ministries is a FL Medicaid Waiver Provider and accepts private paying clients.
