Community Day offers something for everyone

This year’s OTC Community Day promises to have more in store for everyone who attends.

In addition to the annual OTC Car and Motorcycle Show along with the popular Welding Day, visitors will also find helpful demonstrations and information about a variety of subjects from landscaping to food preparation.

The second annual Community Day will be April 30 on the Springfield campus from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission and parking is free.

“Community Day was developed as a way for the college to give back to the community with programs, demonstrations and activities that visitors would find useful in their everyday lives,” said Joel Doepker, college director of comunications and marketing

“This year’s event has been getting a lot of attention and interest around campus as more groups and programs are participating this year.”

The car show promises to be one of the largest ever with entry categories in a variety of styles, from original cars and trucks to street rods and modifies along with truck modifies.

The entry fee is $12 before the show and $15 on the day of the show. Rat Rods can be displayed for $8 but will they will not be judged.  For registration information, call 447-8293 or go email Terry Pridgeon at

Visitors who need welding repairs can bring their items to the north side of the ITTC building, located near the southwest corner of Central Street and National Avenue.

Donations will be accepted in exchange for the repair work with the money going to charity.

The annual Turf and Landscape program’s Plant Sale will take place that day with plenty of quality flowers and vegetable plants available for purchase. The program will conduct a water-gardening demonstration and offer lawn-mower-blade sharpening. Visitors are asked to just bring the blade, not the entire mower.

Students from the Allied Health dental program will be giving away toothbrushes, toothpaste and dental floss.
