The community is invited to an artist reception on Wednesday, Feb. 28 at 6:30 p.m. in the library. Stop by and explore artwork by various Peppermint Ridge residents.

Peppermint Ridge was founded in 1959 by Mary and Bob Jeffrey, Norco residents who wanted quality care for their developmentally disabled son. Finding no such care available, they opened their personal home to other young boys with the same needs as their son.  By 1975, the original seventeen children moved to their present Peppermint Ridge location in Corona. Today, Peppermint Ridge continues to provide loving homes and support services to adults with developmental disabilities so they reach their full potential.

If you would like to learn more about this art show or would like to exhibit your art at Corona Public Library, please call Trixy Betsworth at 951-547-1184 or email Trixy.Betsworth@CoronaCA.gov.
