Inspiration Village given new Ford van
Trinity Standard -
TRINITY – A 2010 Ford van capable of transporting 10 people was given last week to the newly opened Inspiration Village near Trinity. Mr. And Mrs. Tony Gullo Sr., owners of Gullo Ford and Gullo Toyota in Conroe, made the gift to assist Inspiration Village in its work with intellectually challenged Texans. On Friday, Oct. 22, Connie Price, together with village parents and friends, went to Conroe to accept the gift. “This was a very special and exciting trip,” Price said. “For the first time we were all able to ride together. We had the best ride home. “This means that the villagers of Inspiration Village can travel around town, bowling, horseback riding, out to eat, Galveston, San Antonio, and to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, and many other places. This means they can all travel together at the same time! What a gift!” “We want to thank Mr. and Mrs. Gullo for what they have done for us. When talking to Tony Gullo Sr. you can feel the care he has for those with special needs as well the desire he and his wife have for making this whole world a better place for all.” Price also voiced Inspiration Village’s appreciation to the Trinity community for the support they have shown in the months leading up to the facilities formal opening earlier this month. Inspiration Village will be a working ranch and will provide work and care for those with conditions including autism, mental retardation, traumatic brain injury, Rett syndrome and other similar conditions. The ranch will offer a dignified workplace in a homelike environment that fits itself to the abilities of each individual. It will feature a tame cow, a donkey, chickens and a garden. Plans call for the village to sell both eggs and produce.
