from the Red Bluff Daily News

On Wednesday, the Maker Summer program was launched with a kick-off event at the State Theatre, including several booths by local organizations and a movie, “If You Build It,” meant to inspire Tehama County youth to get out and be creative this summer. A collaborative effort amongst the Tehama County Department of Education, Expect More Tehama, the Tehama County Library, the Green Room Community Art Studio, Safe Education and Recreation For Rural Families and other groups, Maker Summer is meant to keep students learning throughout the summer to keep them from losing ground academically while away from school, said Melissa Mendonca, Tehama County Arts Council chairwoman.”
