Theres something to do in Roanoke (for a change)

Now that the Christmas Holiday is behind us (364 shopping days left), and the new year lies ahead - this is the quiet downtime while the world waits. In a change of pace this year, fellow blogger and Municipal Worker-type Stuart Mease has put together a little job fair.



Little. Right.



The partial list of attendees include some of the largest companies in the valley, one of which is technically not even here yet - but will be come March (or so), the local governments, local art and "lifestyle" (whatever that means) groups, and even the Roanoke Regional Small Business Development Center.



And that's just the short list - I'm sure the list has grown since this one was published.



Thursday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Roanoke Civic Center (located on scenic Williamson Rd.), admission is free.





I'm off that day, so I might just see fit to come down off the hilltop overlooking downtown and put in an appearance.



In a related note (to being on the hill overlooking downtown), Mrs. RoanokeFound saw fit to present me with yet another dangerous tool in my hands. The Computer-aided, lazer assisted, high-tech stealth device I received will allow me to peer even further into downtown Roanoke, and easily track goings on.



Good for me, bad for those who turn tail and run at the sight of the Forgotten-Roanoke.com jacket. And you know who you are.. Mr. "Cough to get Attention at Tanglewood Mall"...



But that's a story for another time...

Roanoke Found, thanks for the publicity for the event. Exposure has been good, hopefully, folks will show up.

We appreciate the good work you are doing and for being the #1 blog in Roanoke via a Google search on Roanoke blogs. Keep up the good work...

Look forward to meet you soon...

Too bad it's being held for only a couple of hours one day when my stepson has to be at work...
