On behalf of CASA of Fulton and Montgomery Counties, I would like to thank everyone who helped to make CASA's Celebration of Children Showcase, 2011, a great success.
Many organizations and programs in both counties came with information that greatly benefited the members of the public who attended.
Thank you to all the young entertainers who were willing to come to the celebration and showcase their talents.
Thank you to all the various local businesses that contributed to the showcase either with a monetary donation or a donation of goods and services.
Thank you to St. Mary's for the use of its auditorium to hold the event.
Thank you to the celebration committee. These folks met monthly and then weekly since January to make this event an enormous success.
Serving on the committee was Tracy Fluty, chair and CASA advisory board member; Lauren Bibby, United Way of Montgomery County; Jared Palermo, Catholic Charities; Tom Georgia, Amsterdam Free Library; Trelaina Gonzalez, Fidelis; and Stormy Orengo from Centro Civico of Amsterdam.
This annual event is held as a finale to April as Prevent Child Abuse Month.
CASA of Fulton and Montgomery Counties advocates for children who have been removed from their families because of child abuse and neglect.
CASA is always looking for volunteer advocates.
