Manufacturing Day to hold several events

STEVENSVILLE — The seventh annual Manufacturing Day returns to Southwest Michigan on Oct. 4.

Three events will take place at the same time, as the 2019 local Manufacturing Day event has been restructured to provide junior and senior career and technical education students the chance to show their academic programs and facilities to local employers.

There will be a networking lunch to follow the tours.

Manufacturing Day is a national event to bring together manufacturers, students, teachers, parents, job seekers and other community members to showcase modern manufacturing technology and careers.
