The Community Appreciation Day has a family fun filled atmosphere, but it also serves as an opportunity to learn more about what is transpiring in and around the community. They have provided for employers who are looking for workers as well as job training programs to set up shop to assist those who might be in the market for work. There are health care providers who will be on site to assist people who may have not been able to make it to their physician this year.
