10/24/2014 – No Place Like Home – “Made in DeKalb” One-Day Event Spotlights County Industries and More!

leave a comment »

Fort Payne, Ala. – As more Americans begin to realize the importance of supporting homegrown businesses, the Made in DeKalb Expo continues to emphasize the importance of doing so. The third annual event is set for October 30, 2014.

Representatives from manufacturing, transportation/warehousing/distribution/logistics, engineering/industrial and commercial construction, education, healthcare, tourism/hospitality and media are expected to participate. There is no charge to eligible companies to participate by having a booth.

The event is not just for companies. All 9th and 12th graders are given the opportunity to attend. They will meet with industries and learn what careers are available as well as the training needed and will have the opportunity to talk with representatives from the Alabama Career Center and Northeast Alabama Community College.

There will be opportunities for the students to participate in hands-on activities with the industry and education providers. The students will be given a passport that they will have marked by the vendors and return for a chance to win door prizes. The AIDT Robotics Technology Park will have their mobile lab onsite to see and learn how technology has grown and the additional skills needed to be competitive in the labor market. Northeast Alabama Community College’s virtual welder offers attendees a chance to try a hand at welding, virtually of course. Instructors will be on-hand to provide details on the welding profession and to “grade” those who would like to test their welding skills.

The Northeast Alabama BEST Robotics will be onsite this year with judging of the teams’ marketing presentation and engineering notebooks. There will be slots available to observe the skills of the students as they market their Robots!

The expo will open to the public from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. offering everyone the chance to learn about all the great products that are manufactured in DeKalb County. DeKalb County is a leader in the state in the areas of agriculture and tourism and the “Made in DeKalb” expo is an opportunity for the public to visit with representatives from these sectors and to learn just how much they contribute to the local economy.

“Made in DeKalb” will be held Thursday, October 30, 2014, at the Northeast Alabama Agri-Business Center, located at 1571 McCurdy Avenue North in Rainsville, Alabama. The event will be open to participating businesses from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and open to the public at no charge from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.  For more information, contact the DeKalb County Economic Development Association at 888-421-7957 or 256-845-7957.

10/24/2014 – Over 1,200 Dogs to Compete for Best in Show Title in Decatur

leave a comment »

Decatur, Ala. – Hosted jointly by the Huntsville Kennel Club and the Decatur Alabama Kennel Club, the Cotton Cluster Dog Shows featuring 135 breeds are set for November 6-9, 2014, at the Morgan County Celebration Arena. Dogs ranging from 6 month old puppies to the most experienced show dog will make their way to North Alabama to compete for the coveted title of “Best in Show”. Shows are held daily and spectators are welcome to attend.

The Cotton Cluster Dog Shows are considered one of the largest area dog shows licensed by the American Kennel Club. Last year, over 1,200 dogs from all over the United States, Canada, and Mexico entered and competed.

Best in Show and Reserve Best in Show will be presented each day. On Friday and Saturday (November 7th and 8th), the Huntsville Kennel Club and the Decatur Alabama Kennel Club are hosting the National Owner Handler Series and on Saturday morning, the Huntsville Kennel Club will offer a four to six month beginner puppy show.

The Sheltie Club of North Alabama and the Poodle Club of Alabama will have their Designated Specialty Shows as in previous years, and the Dachshund Club of Alabama will hold one concurrent show as will the Bulldog Club of America (Division 8) and Shetland Sheepdog Club of Greater Birmingham. On Saturday, November 8th, the National Redbone Coonhound Club will hold a Sanctioned A Match following the Best In Show presentation. Several other breeds are supporting their breeds all four days.

On Saturday, November 8th, the Huntsville Kennel Club will award a $2,000 scholarship for Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine to a student from northern Alabama.

A dog show such as the Cotton Cluster provides the perfect opportunity to pick your next “best friend.” Event organizers encourage anyone considering the purchase of a purebred dog to attend the Cotton Cluster Dog Shows and talk one-on-one with exhibitors about their breed.

Shows begin at 9 a.m. Thursday, 8:30 a.m. Friday and 8 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free. Parking is $5 per car each day. The Morgan County Celebration Arena is located at 67 Horse Center Road (off Highway 67 East) in Decatur.

For more information, visit www.huntsvillekennelclub.org, www.dakc.org, or contact Show Organizer Jean Hairston at jean.hairston@att.net.

10/24/2014 – Three Days of Scouting at Point Mallard Park November 7-9

leave a comment »

Decatur, Ala. – For three days in November, hundreds of Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers, Explorers and adult volunteers will come together to test their Scouting skills and to promote brotherhood in Decatur, Alabama. An opportunity to showcase everything that is great about Scouting and the Greater Alabama Council Boy Scouts of America, ScoutFest 2014 will take place November 7-9, 2014, at Point Mallard Park in Decatur, Ala.

ScoutFest is a Greater Alabama Council wide event where Scouts of all ages can participate in a wide-range of activities and learning opportunities. All Packs, Troops, Crews, Ships, and Posts are encouraged to attend and camp both nights. The Point Mallard Driving Range will serve as the camping area.

ScoutFest offers a multitude of activities for Scouts of all ages. Cub Scout activities include several shooting sports such as archery, BB guns and slingshots; Pinewood Derby Extravaganza; pedal cars and a scavenger hunt. For Boy Scouts and Venturers, there will be axe throwing, wall climbing, woodcarving, an obstacle/skills course and a knot tying competition. Two high adventure activities – spar pole climbing and a canoe/portage course – will also be available for Boy Scouts and Venturers who are at least 14 years old. Additional activities for all Scouts include ice skating, ultimate Frisbee, Frisbee golf, flag etiquette, fishing in the Tennessee River, tethered hot-air balloon rides and more.

Along with recreational activities, participants will be treated to presentations and demonstrations, and members of the Coosa Lodge Indian Village will be on hand dancing to American Indian drumming and singing. The evening concludes with an exciting arena-type show and a fireworks display.

Registration is required to participate in activities. For more information on ScoutFest,  including an online registration link, visit www.scoutfest.com or the Council’s website, www.1bsa.org, or contact Jeff Brasher at jbrasher@1bsa.org or 205-970-0251.

Decatur Parks and Recreation officials are excited as the anticipation builds for the influx of hundreds of 2014 ScoutFest event attendees. To best inform local residents and visitors of the openings and closings within the park during preparation, Point Mallard Park Superintendent, Jason Lake said, “For the safety of the scouts and leaders, we will need to adjust access and hours of portions of the park. There will be no outside, unauthorized access of Point Mallard Circle from Friday, November 7 (after Eastwood Elementary School releases students) through Sunday, November 9 via either Point Mallard Drive near the Golf Course or Greenwood Drive, SE. The Point Mallard Ice Rink will be closed to the public Friday through Sunday, November 7-9 as well. The Strike Zone, T.C. Almon and the Jimmy Johns Tennis Center will be closed Thursday, November 6 through Sunday, November 9. We would like to point out that the Point Mallard Walking Trails will remain open; however, we ask that pedestrians show particular caution when approaching the Archery Park. The Point Mallard Golf Course and Point Mallard Campground will remain open as usual.” For more information on openings and closures at Point Mallard Park, call 256.341.4912.
