Applicants are required to attend at least one Commission meeting prior to being considered for an interview. The next meeting will be held at 2:00pm on April 22, 2020 (either virtually, if the shelter-in-place order is still in place, or at the Lower Lake Town Hall).

On April 17th at 1:00 p.m., First 5 Lake will welcome award-winning science & health journalist, Donna Jackson Nakazawa, to provide a two-hour "Writing to Heal" workshop for Lake County foster/adoptive parents, social workers, teachers, law enforcement, behavioral health workers and any others who work with at-risk youth in our community.  This event will be held VIA LIVE WEBINAR so that participants can comply with the Shelter in Place Order.
