SIDNEY — The Shelby County Community Service Council, 105.5 TAM FM and the Sidney-Shelby County YMCA is sponsoring the 2nd Annual Community Connections Expo to be held on Thursday, Sept. 28, from 3 to 6 p.m. at the YMCA.

The Community Connections Expo is free and open to the public. Its focus is to highlight services offered to the community from local non-profit and governmental agencies who are focused on providing human services. Agencies represented at the Community Connections Expo include Shelby County Job & Family Services, Senior Center of Sidney-Shelby County, Samaritan Works, Shelby County Counseling Center, Shelby County CASA, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Clear Creek Farms and close to 30 other local agencies.

The Community Connections Expo provides an opportunity for those in the community to learn and better understand all the help and resources that are available to those who have a need within the county. Individuals, local education employees (including teachers, guidance counselors and principals), human resource officers with local businesses and churches are encouraged to attend.

There is also the opportunity for these groups to better understand opportunities to volunteer with local non-profits. A chance to win door prizes will be offered to those in attendance.
