A new addition to the Developmental Skills Laboratory at Utah State University’s Center for Persons with Disabilities will make every day a picnic day.

According to Drake Rasmussen, DSL program director, the new backyard pavilion gives the program more space for the 17 day program participants to enjoy sunny Cache Valley summer days.

“We love picnics,” Rasmussen said. “We go on them all the time. It’s good to have the opportunity to do it every day when it’s nice outside.”

The pavilion was recently dedicated at a lunch-time event for participants and their families.

“We hope to do a picnic like this annually,” Rasmussen said, adding that in the past, families have requested events such as this one.

USU facilities removed old bushes along fenceline at the back of the yard, opening up a beautiful view of the Wellsville Mountains, and did extensive concrete repairs before the pavilion was built.

DSL participants and their families can enjoy shady picnics under the new pavilion.
