Harmon Field is host to Serendipity Kids Ranch, an after school and summer camp for kids ages 3 – 12, located in the former middle school building. Camp director Lorna Dever guides after-schoolers, campers and staff at Serendipity’s program where kids come to learn and grow.

Springtime gardening is an activity the kids love and the program needs local help. Landrum Hardware has given the program a jumpstart with a new wheelbarrow and lots of seeds. Other donations of garden tools and accessories would be appreciated.

Dori Ray, a local mother with a passion for gardening and teaching kids, is the contact, as she has volunteered to help get their garden started and keep it going. Lorna, Dori, the staff and Serendipity parents are committed to having healthy, organically grown veggies that aren’t overrun with weeds. With so many helping hands, they currently do not have enough tools to go around.
