A group of Keystone College AmeriCorps Scholars in Service to Pa. visited Oak Leaf Therapeutic Horsemanship Center, on Tunnel Hill Road, Factoryville, to volunteer their services Sept. 27. The college's AmeriCorps Scholars have been volunteering at the center for the past two years, according to Maria Fanning, Director of Community Outreach at Keystone, La Plume.

The center is owned by Loretta Dragon, a registered nurse who uses the horses there as therapists.

"They are my partners in helping people who have difficulty, autism, CP and strokes," she said.

She said she likes to have college students volunteer, so they can see how a business runs. Some students who volunteer are veterinarian or nursing majors.

"What I would like for the farm is to become a teaching place where people can come and see what they would like to do with their careers that you're looking at," Dragon said.
