Vocational Solutions Ribbon Cutting

A celebration of the opening of our new screen print and embroidery business as well as the revitalization of the clean room was held on January 30 with a ribbon cutting and reception.  Both the down payment of the printing business and the opening of the clean room were made possible by a $25,000 grant from The Hendersonville County Board of Commissioners.  Bob Williford of the Henderson County Chamber of Commerce officiated the ribbon cutting ceremony and then Vocational Solutions executive director Allen Combs gave an update on current progress of our organization and cut the ribbon.  Guests toured the facility and also enjoyed food and drink at the reception.  Not only are clients able to receive work training in these two enterprises, the profit from these businesses help fund Vocational Solutions programs.
