Finger Lakes Works With Their Hands 2019

Friday, October 4th, 2019 by Kelsey Belile


The 14th Annual "Finger Lakes Works...With Their Hands!" was held Thursday, October 3rd at Rodman Lott & Son Farms in Seneca Falls, NY. Each year hundreds of students from the Finger Lakes area are able to try their hands at various trades and learn about job opportunities that exist locally! At the Halco building, students could ride a scissor lift and try plasma cutting, soldering, conduit bending, and operating an excavator.
