Our Senior Citizens Days, held once in the fall and once in the spring, continue to be met with
enthusiasm, judging by the growing turnout.
This year’s spring event, held April 11, was attended by nearly 400 visitors and 23 community vendors participated. In addition to the amount of planning that the LAMPS Committee puts into making the events a success, a number of Pickaway-Ross programs help out, too.
Automotive Technologies students provided oil changes; Cosmetology students provided manicures and pedicures; Media Design students ran the Bingo games; Medical Careers students performed blood pressure and glucose checks; Machining Technologies students made personalized key chains and Precision Welding students made yard art; and Commercial Food Careers students served the day’s lunch.
Assistance also was provided by Criminal Investigation and Police Science students, Student Ambassadors and Student Executive Members.
Inviting members of our community in to our school is just one way we can tout the great
things we do here every day. As a vital part of Pickaway and Ross counties, it’s important that
we strengthen the connections we have with our stakeholders. Our Senior Citizens Days are
just one way to do that.
We also promote our value when we take part in activities in the communities we serve. For
example, at the recent Southern Ohio Home & Garden Show, hundreds of visitors stopped by
our booth and took materials on our secondary and adult education offerings and learned
about our house project in Chillicothe.
In June we’ll have a booth at the Pickaway County Fair and in August we’ll be at the Ross
County Fair where we’ll continue educating visitors about the value of Pickaway-Ross to
Every interaction we have with people outside of Pickaway-Ross is an opportunity to promote what we do at Pickaway-Ross. Let’s make the most of it.
Visitors to PRCTC’s Spring Senior Citizens Day on April 11 enjoy free pedicures.
