If you're seeking employment or wanting to make a career change, this is an opportune time as Covid-19/lockdowns have created job openings/employee shuffle, adding to pre-existing workforce shortages in specific industries. To address these employee shortages, Tri-County Literacy Council is offering three new (free) programs for adult job seekers 19+: ·         If you enjoy interacting with others and a flexible work schedule, a Cashier position might be for you (6-week program starts September 6) ·         If you like the idea of always having cash and not taking work home, consider a career as a Food and Beverage Server (6-week program starts September 12) ·         The transportation industry shortages offer many opportunities such as Truck Driver, Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Truck Mechanic, Route and Crew Scheduler, Shipper, Shipping Supervisor, and Truck Loader (5-week program starts October 24) In these pilot programs, participants practice essential skills while learning about the specific topic chosen. To augment learning, industry guest speakers share their expertise with students. Successful completion of the program will result in job placements.

The stage at St. John’s United Church, 32 Park Street, in Brockville will be an extremely popular venue on Friday, August 19 and Saturday, August 20 at 7 p.m., as the talent and creativity of composer Howard Alexander and internationally known storyteller Deborah Dunleavy’s musical “Scantily Clad”, comes to life. Written specially for the Youth Opportunities in the Arts (YOA), during the Covid-19 Pandemic shutdown, these two multitalented duo of Howard and Deborah, bring humour, drama, history, love and music, based on the actions of the 1930's. This young cast is remarkable in their deliverance of this musical melodrama. "We are excited to showcase our 12 young performers, who have dedicated their summer to stage this original musical melodrama on the St. John's Stage," commented Harold. "The world premiere of this fun filled show will be a blast." These performers are from North Grenville, Mallorytown, Morrisburg, Kemptville, Brockville and area. There are about 20 musical tunes throughout the performance which you may think you know the words to. Not! Howard has a surprise for you. "It is a very cute story about the rum runners of the 1000 Islands in the 1930's, during the prohibition," stated YOA Director Chris Coyea. "I must mention Judy Quick, our producer, as she has kept Harold (stage director) and me (musical director) on track and on our toes. As well as Margaret Whissell; she's great with the kids and backing up our music." Both Chris Coyea and Harold Hess indicate that the musical is a family show; noting that it is set in the 1930's. Bathing suits worn in that era were considered risqué, even though the body was covered. Quite different from bathing suits of today! Ticket prices are adults $20, students $10, and under 12 years of age, are free. These tickets are available at the door the nights of the performances or purchase seats by emailing youthopportunitiesinthearts@gmail.com. YOA is a Brockville and area not for profit organization that supports the artistic endeavours of youth from age 13 to 30. Media release written by Doreen Barnes.
