This event will give participants the opportunity to hear knowledgeable speakers with diverse backgrounds in their respective fields of medicine, industry, trades, and education.

According to Laurie Jacobs, event coordinator and Case Manager at TCCN, “this is going to be the perfect opportunity to learn how to start, change, or advance in your career, what training is needed and available and how to apply for positions.” Representatives of the Shasta Builders Exchange, Mayers Memorial Hospital, Sierra Pacific Industries and Shasta College will lead the discussion.

This event is free and open to the public. For additional information call Laurie at 335-4600 or stop in at the Intermountain Community Center.

The camera used by the Lions detects about 10% of students with stigmatism or other eye problems and refers them for eye exams. If the child is unable to afford an exam or glasses, the Lions pay for that.
