RedFork Main Street President Linda Jordan, secretary Nancy Webster, and executive director Katy Davis recently visited the Oklahoma State Capitol to meet with legislators and run a booth showing what RedFork Main Street is all about.
Katy and Linda reported that one highlight of the RedFork Main Street exhibit — which showed the history of the area, our current activities, and our hopes for the future — was a laptop computer playing a slideshow about the area and the program.
We have added the slideshow to the “images” section of our site. Click here to watch it. Be sure to click on the captions link to see information about the pictures, and turn up your speakers so you can hear the audio.
Nancy Webster, director of community relations for Goodwill Industries, reports that Goodwill is planning to hold a job fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 15 at 2800 Southwest Blvd. Many companies will have booths, and some will conduct interviews on the spot.
