Brundidge council votes to continue FYE2017 budget

Published 3:00 am Wednesday, October 4, 2017

Dr. Antoinette Wilson founder of Toni’s Touch child enrichment program addressed the Brundidge City Council Tuesday night to inform the council members about her Feed My Lambs and Five Wells programs. Wilson also requested the use of the Galloway Park facility as a meeting place for the afterschool program.

Wilson said her enrichment and mentoring program would accommodate about 30 children beginning at age seven. The children will be instructed in the five wells – well read, well dressed, well spoken, well traveled and well balanced.

The council voted to allow Wilson the use of the Galloway Park facility for her non-profit mentoring program. Toni’s Touch is a non-profit organization, which is funded through advertising in a self-published magazine and donations.
