Oneonta Job Corps is back this year with the Clubhouse Project Kickoff-Community Ballgame this Thursday (Aug. 25) at Damaschke Field in Oneonta.  This community outreach event features Oneonta Job Corps student and staff playing softball against a mix of teens and staff from Family Resource Network in Oneonta and Friends of Recovery.  The doors open at 6:30 p.m. with community organizations sharing information and giveaways, plus concessions available.

This event is free and the community is encouraged to come out and bring the kids because there will be all kinds of different contests for kids: dance-offs, race against the Oneonta Job Corps mascot-Bob The Bulldog, a bat spin contest and more.

Then at dusk, enjoy a wonderful fireworks display courtesy of CHP International.
