A group called "Limestone Hands" was formed in early spring this year. It is managed mainly by 6 Deaf ladies along with hearing ASL users and we hope to expand. Since this is a very new group we are coming up with ideas of how to break down communication barriers and make Kingston a more inclusive community for those that uses ASL. We have decided to start this by providing informal ASL classes in a social setting on Tuesdays.
