Providence Woodshop Adds Child’s Adirondack Chair as New Product

Glen Burnie, Md., (June 20, 2011) — A solid wood children’s Adirondack chair is the newest product offered by the Providence Woodshop, according to Dawn Slagle, general manager of the shop that has been in continuous operation since 1978. Providence provides a variety of services and programs to more than 500 individuals with developmental disabilities in Anne Arundel County.

The child’s Adirondack chair is available in a variety of pastel colors and is equally suitable and attractive on a deck, screened in porch or for inside use, perhaps to sit in to enjoy reading a favorite bedtime story or watching television.

“The chairs are charming and like other of our products, are handmade by the 38 Providence participants who are talented and regular participants in the activities at the Woodshop,” said Slagle.

Many Anne Arundel County area residents and visitors may already be familiar with other handmade products of Providence Woodshop such as its well-known birdhouses. “The chairs are definitely of the same quality of our famous birdhouses and everyone who has seen one has been impressed with both the workmanship and of course how handsome it is,” said Slagle.
