Union Carpenters were on hand to teach over twenty high school students very basic wood handling, tool, and craft skills. Outreach events offer a unique opportunity for high school students to explore and develop an interest in the trades.

Orientations like this one, bring students to the action, giving them the necessary knowledge to start a career in the trades.
Local 805 Lends a Helping Hand
Union Carpenters from Local 805 lent a hand this weekend to update the Arroyo Grande Heritage Square gazebo. Carpenters have aided in the restoration of the Rotary bandstand gazebo since 2021. The bandstand is a staple of the community and hosts summer concerts every year. Arroyo Grande Mayor Caren Ray Russom and Jimmy Paulding, the 4th district county supervisor joined the efforts and expressed their gratitude towards our Carpenter volunteers while working on the project.
