Mid-Columbia Employment First “Carnival” Set For September 19

Mid-Columbia Employment First is planning a community carnival next week for employers, future emploees, and agencies who support people with barriers to employment.  Mid-Columbia Employment First is made up of a group of agencies that partner with the state of Oregon to help individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities find employment in their communities.  Eastern Oregon Support Services Brokerage executive director Laura Noppenberger says they hope to bring together potential employers and employees in a fun environment with food, games, and music.  The event will be from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, September 19 in the Sorosis Park Pavilion.
