Thank you to the Greater Lake’s Region Children’s Auction for its recent grant award of $10,000. According to an article in the Laconia Daily Sun, the GLRCA gave more than $225,000 to local nonprofits supporting children. CASA Program Manager Joy Nolan attended a reception at Patrick’s Pub in Gilford on Feb. 1 for the presentation made to the 19 organizations that were recipients. The money donated to CASA as a part of this program supports the recruitment, training and support of volunteer advocates for CASA in the Lakes Region.
There is an ongoing need for new CASA volunteers in all areas of the state. A training for Lakes Region volunteers and beyond is beginning on March 20 and will be held one day per week for 5 weeks in Northfield. Interested volunteers who wish to apply can do so online or download and print the application.
