Collaboration with the VC DECA Class
It was an absolute pleasure to partner with class instructor, Sheila Larson, and the Valley City DECA students for assistance with marketing The Longest Table. Engaging a variety of residents and integrating their ideas into the community is a desired outcome of The Longest Table.
We invite community members 14 years and older to join in the conversation on Thursday, August 5th
