Inverness Sertoma & Citrus County – First of its kind project
The Inverness Sertoma Club is undertaking a first of its kind project in Citrus County. The club is funding a Looping System (Telecoil Hearing Induction Loop System) in the sanctuary of the new church facility the Inverness First United Methodist Church congregation is building at 1140 Turner Camp Road in Inverness. You may remember, this is the congregation that lost their church and everything in it on Pleasant Grove Road due to a lightening strike and fire last year.
Inverness Sertoma is a civic club that deals in “Hearing Health” and this project is a great fit, relating directly to the hearing program, and gives back to our local community in a big way. The Looping system will work with a series of wires looped under the flooring. They are connected to the featured speaker’s microphone system. The result is that the message goes directly to that person’s hearing aid.
This system will be the first of its kind in Citrus County. Inverness Sertoma is proud to play a small role in partnering to rebuild a local church, and a large role in providing the funding to bring innovative technology to Citrus County.
