A reminder that July and August mark our annual Casa Scholarship fund-raising period. As the vibrant thermometer poster in the Dining Room Lobby shows, we are hoping to raise $70,000 this year, generated by 140 gifts. Our wonderful staff folks are so grateful for the scholarships we supply, and we all benefit when their educational goals are realized. So please consider a gift today, using the information letter you received in your Casa box at the Reception desk. If you need another copy, there are extras at Reception, or call Maryan Schall (Chair of the Casa Scholarship Committee) at # 8244 for any needed information. We want to make this a banner year in support of a super-important cause. All gifts are “special,” so thank you for your special gift!

Come, be social and have a drink with friends, just like the old days. We start at 5:00 pm; continuing until dinner time. Everyone is invited, so see you on Tuesdays! Special Note: If you have any unopened bottles of wine or liquor you are not using and would like to donate to our weekly gathering.


We are going to have a program on November 10, of patriotic reference, to honor members of the greatest generation, World War II veterans. We did this program once before in November of 2013. If you have moved into Casa since 2013, and you are a WWII veteran, please give me a call so I may add your name and service to our list of honorees. Thank you!
