I have lived in the Falls since 1968. My great-great grandfather was one of the village founders. I have served the community in multiple ways: Firefighter, various boards and commissions and for many years was president of the Falls Cable Access Corp. Currently I own, and am active in, a restaurant equipment manufacturing company.
It is true. Good jobs are available in the manufacturing sector all around our area. But, companies are having trouble finding people with the skills required for these jobs.
This month, local Chambers of Commerce will be offering the Third Annual Manufacturing Career Expo. (MCE) On Wednesday Oct.12th and Thursday Oct.13th, the expo will be held at Davian's Conference Center at 16300 W. Silver Spring Drive.
This evening I got a phone call from a "Private Caller" who represented himself as a member of a veterans group in Germantown.
He thanked me for my previous support of the organization and was requesting a monetary donation. I told him that I had not previously donated to them, but he continued that it was within the last year or 30 days or so. I told him that I didn't belive him and prompty hung up.
