Rotary News
 
 
CASA Executive Director Kathy Meyer presented at the April 6 meeting about CASA in both Palo Pinto and Parker counties. She also spoke about April being Child Abuse Awareness Month, bringing light the child abuse problem on the country. 
 
CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocates, advocate for abused and neglected children in the court system by building a relationship with the child and those who are involved with them such as foster parents, teachers, counselors, and parents. They visit with and talk to the child and those involved every month and then report back to the judge on how the child is doing, if they need anything, and last but not least what they would like the judge to know about the case. A typical case in the systems run 12-18 months, but can last longer in the court system. 
 
 In addition to services to abused and neglected children, the CASA program works to provide the community education concerning the issue of child abuse, neglect, and child welfare policy. They are also committed to working toward public policies that promote child abuse prevention and to address reforms in the Child Protective Services/Foster Care Systems. CASA will have a fundraiser on May 6 to raise money to help support and fund the organization as they work to change the lives of foster children.

The original charter 

Even though we are still counting the raised dollars, this year's drive-thru pancake supper was a successful event. Rachael Watson and her team did a great job organizing the drive-thru event. It was a great night to be a Rotarian and raise money for scholarships.  Our Rotary Interact kids did a great job guiding the vehicles into Heritage Park and running food to vehicles. We could not have done it without them. A special thanks to the teen challenge members who cooked our pancakes for us. By 6:00 p.m., the 100th car came through and was surprised by the $100 gift.
