The Prineville Elks Lodge #1814, 151 N. Main St., is sponsoring a spaghetti dinner on Saturday, Jan. 25 starting at 6 p.m., to benefit the Crook County High School Concert Choir students going on tour to San Francisco.
The jazz choir, Vocal Adrenaline, will provide entertainment for the event.
All proceeds will support the choir students' tour in April.
St. Charles Prineville has donated medical equipment to the Crook County High School Health Science Career Technical Education program as part of an ongoing partnership.
In the fall, Shields met with CCHS Health Science Career Technical Education teacher Katy Joyce, CTE Coordinator Ryan Cochran, and contracted CTE Coordinator Jason Carr. They discussed items that might expand the learning opportunities for Crook County High School students.
The largest equipment items include two hospital beds, some IV poles, walkers, crutches and over-bed tables. St. Charles also donated various supplies such as IV start kits to go with some of the mannequin arms the district recently purchased, catheters and bags to practice measuring urinary output, and many other items.
The equipment and supplies will be used in many of Joyce's classes, such as health occupations, first responder and sports medicine.
Items will be used to expand the learning experience of students and give them hands-on application of items used every day in the workforce. Joyce said her students will get to practice skills such as safe patient handling, transferring patients from the bed, changing bed linens with mannequins in the bed, starting IVs, drawing blood, and many more skills.
