Who CASA is from their website:
When a child enters the foster care system because his or her home is no longer safe, a judge may appoint a committed volunteer to help them. That volunteer is called a Court Appointed Special Advocate¬ģ, or CASA.
CASA volunteers are screened and highly trained and then appointed by judges to represent and advocate for a child‚Äôs best interests in the child protection system.¬†CASA volunteers are each assigned to help one child or set of siblings at a time, so they can focus on giving that child or sibling group the individualized advocacy and attention they need.¬†CASA volunteers save taxpayers money and children‚Äôs futures by helping children find safe, permanent homes as soon as possible.

We had 35 trees on display last year, hoping to have a few more this year. We will be using the upstairs area too!!!¬† There is no charge to set up a tree, but there will be an admission charge during the display: One non-perishable food item for distribution to the Beeville Vineyard Food Bank after the event is over!!

We have a couple of “mini” events at the house this month. Hoping the porch and balcony are completed by the first day….The first one is sponsored by the Ghost Hounds of South Texas on October 24, 2015. Starting at about 6:15pm, they will be swapping “ghost stories” and showing the equipment used in “paranormal” investigations. This was very popular last year, one thing tho. Seating is limited, so bring a fold out chair for your comfort.
And on Halloween, 10/31/15, some of our members will be handing out treats to Halloween Trick or Treaters!!! Come by and be part of it!!!
Yes folks, the contractors have started work on the restoration of the¬† balcony and porch. Here are photos of the work and ¬†hoping all goes well. We have sent the paper information on the grants we¬† received and all the donations that made it possible. We were able to¬† collect a little over $18,000.00. The work for the restoration will be¬† $13500.00, hoping we collect just a bit more to get insulation added at a¬† later time to the attic and under the first floor, that is expensive too!!
THIS EVENT WAS AN AWESOME SUCCESS!!!!
THANK YOU ALL FOR BEING PART OF IT!!!
