Springdale hosts trees and treats

Community invited to event at Job Corps Center


With the holidays coming up fast, Springdale Job Corps Center is getting into the spirit by hosting its first ever “Trees & Treats.”

Every year Springdale students decorate Christmas trees in their dormitory halls and compete for the title of best decorated tree.

This year staff and students are going all out.

Join them from 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4, for tree viewing and voting, warm drinks and cookies.

Reynolds High School choir will perform at the event three times at 5:30 p.m., 6 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

There will also be a free raffle for attendees with car detailing and other prizes up for grabs.

Trees & Treats is free and open to the community.

This event takes the place of the Springdale Job Corps annual community holiday dinner.

Job Corps is a project of the U.S. Department of Labor that provides technical career training at no cost for students ages 16 to 24. Students accepted into the program also can earn their high school diplomas if needed.

To donate items to the raffle, or for more information, contact Anna Snyder at snyder.anna@jobcorps.org or 503-665-2245, ext. 244.

Springdale Job Corps Center is at 31224 E. Columbia River Highway in Troutdale.
