    Community Connection Workshops: Using Banking & A Good Credit Score to Put More Money in my Pocket

    Thursday Aug 22
    6 pm - 7 pm

    Epps Memorial Library

    On Wednesday, July 10, the City of Lake Charles hosted a news conference to announce the new Community Connectionworkshop series.

    Much like the City’s successful Teen Connection series, launched in October 2017, Community Connection is a series of free, one-hour workshops. The workshops will enhance life skills for adults in Lake Charles and the surrounding area and are scheduled for July, August and September.

    “There has been much conversation in recent years about the economic boom our area is experiencing, but one thing we hear quite frequently is that many of our citizens are unsure of how they can benefit and improve their own lives on the heels of this growth,” said Mayor Nic Hunter. “Community Connection will focus on providing real, practical information on topics such as landing a better job, gaining financial independence, leveraging banking and a good credit score to improve your personal bottom line, encouraging the entrepreneurial spirit, and much more.”

    Workshops begin on Tuesday, July 23, and will be held from 6 -7 p.m. The location will alternate between Epps Memorial Library (1320 North Simmons St.) and Huber Recreation Center (2124 14th St.). Attendees will be entered into a raffle to win a brand-new laptop computer.

    The schedule is as follows:

    July 23, 2019, Epps Memorial Library: “How Can I Land a Better Job within this Economic Boom?

    July 25, 2019, Huber Recreation Center: “How Can I Make More Money by Enhancing my Skills or Education?

    Aug 22, 2019, Epps Memorial Library: “Using Banking and a Good Credit Score to Put More Money in My Pocket”

    September 12, 2019, Huber Recreation Center: “Financial Freedom! Through Good Budgeting and Thinking Long Term”

    September 26, 2019, Epps Memorial Library: “I can do This! Ladders are made for Climbing!” 

    Complete details on the program, including a full, printable schedule, can be found at www.cityoflakecharles.com/communityconnection.

     

    Community Connection is presented in partnership with the Calcasieu Paris Public Library, Southwest Louisiana Economic Development Alliance, Project Build a Future, United Way of Southwest Louisiana, Hancock Whitney Bank and the Lake Charles Education Collaborative.

    As the LUTCHER THEATER prepares for the 2019-20 40th Anniversary Season the LUTCHER THEATER SERVICE GUILD, invites individuals interested in getting involved with the arts to join their fabulous volunteer team! The annual Lutcher Theater Service Guild Membership Drive will be held on Thursday, August 22, 2019 at 6pm at the Lutcher Theater 3rd Floor Lobby, 707 Main Ave, Orange Texas. 77630.

    The Lutcher Theater Service Guild is a non-profit organization whose main objective is to support the Lutcher Theater’s performing arts series. Annually the theater provides entertainment to approximately 30,000 adults and children and the Guild helps to facilitate Lutcher events in a variety of ways.
    Additionally, the Guild offers an opportunity for fun and engaging social interaction while affording volunteers choices of working when their schedules allow.
     
    Persons interested in volunteering can choose to be involved with one or more committees, which represent the different aspects of the theater’s needs. Volunteer committee opportunities include:
     
    Patron Services: includes ushering, scanning and counting tickets, attending concessions and coatroom, and assisting with hearing devices and binocular rentals.
     
    Hospitality: includes catering and providing “Home Town” hospitality for national and international touring company members, and technical crews. The Lutcher Theater has earned a national/international reputation as the theater known by artists to provide hometown hospitality and the feeling of “coming home to family.”
     
    Sets, Lights, Audio and Props: includes assisting backstage with the technical aspects of a show, such as loading in, lighting, sound, props and wardrobe for most daytime children’s shows.
     
    Administration: includes mailing material relating to board meetings, general membership meetings, and invitations to special events such as the Guild’s Christmas Dinner and Officer Installation Dinner.
     
    Audience Development: includes distributing materials such as posters and flyers throughout Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana promoting the theater events to the public.
