Last weekend, 21 Hancock County Technical Center students brought home the Gold in the SkillsUSA competition held in Maine! That's the great news! Now comes the real work, as they start to raise funds so they can go and compete representing Maine in the National SkillsUSA competition to be held in Kentucky in June.

One of the first fundraisers will be this Monday night, March 16th at Pat's Pizza in Ellsworth from 5 to 7 PM. Don't worry, Pat's Pizza's cooks will still be cooking, it's the HCTC SkillsUSA students who will be serving! So don't wear your best clothes, because knowing a few of these students, there might be a little spillage of drinks, but bring plenty of cash to tip them, so that way they can go and show the rest of the United States, how Maine kids represent! (Just kidding about the spillage)
