Kathy Butler, Mike Tindall & Jane Lister, of Okanagan College, were hosted by Dave Hoyte.  They described the new $6.2m, 13,450 square foot, Trades Training Centre scheduled to open August 2018 on the Vernon Campus.  Carpentry, electrical, plumbing, pipe-fitting, residential construction and welding will be the core skills taught, though there will also be opportunities for other industry specific programs.  Aboriginals, women & high school youth at risk will be encouraged.  OC is looking to raise an additional $1m, for a combination of equipment, fixtures, and scholarships for needy students.  Our club is asked to consider being part of the community support toward this $1m goal.
