The activities will be from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 in the Redd/Watkins Vocational Technical Center. The whole community is invited to attend to meet with the representatives on hand. There is no charge to attend. Several local high schools are planning to bring groups of students, to explore their options for the future.
