    Santa Clarita's Platinum Groove played at Concerts in the Park this weekend where thousands of locals gathered to hear the wide variety of music the band had to offer. They played the most popular music from every decade from fifties rock and oldies to today's most popular songs and everything in between. Everyone was able to sing along and dance to each song allowing every member in the family to feel included for a very fun night. Some oldies included songs like My Girl by the Temptations and Shake Your Groove Thing by Peaches & Herb, while more current songs included Forget You by Cee Lo Green and Firework by Katy Perry. Platinum Groove was an overall hit on this Saturday summer night as the grassy dance floor in front of the stage was packed all night long. The KHTS Face painting booth was also a hit for the fourth weekend in a row at Concerts in the Park.

    COC Officials Presented Their Fourth Career Camp At The Valencia

    “It’s our fourth year. We start off with no speakers, put up a white board up and experts in any field can lead a session.  It’s a very free flowing event, “ said Anthony Michaelides, director of Career Services at COC. The style of this event is known as an “unconference”, meaning the attendees create the conference from the moment they arrive. “People tend to think that you need to know who the speaker will be for each topic and you will need to plan ahead and have a schedule, and for the organizers it can be stressful,” said Douglas Welch, the founder of the Career Camp event.  “Because the attendees put together this conference, they come, they sign up either as a speaker, listener, or both and they make it a really successful event.”
