ATTENTION ALL CASA RESIDENTS! LOOK FOR THE CASA SCHOLARSHIP FUND THERMOMETER POSTERS IN THE DINING ROOM LOBBY AND MAIL ROOM. WATCH THEM PUSH PAST THE BOILING POINT AGAIN! 

It’s time to make our Casa Scholarship Fund “thermometer” burst through its top again. Thirty scholarships were awarded to our staff and children of staff at our heart-warming ceremony on June 11. A video of that ceremony, filmed by our own Bob Yamin, is showing on Casa’s channel 1960, Monday through Friday, July 9 though July 13, at 11:00 am and 4:30 pm each day. 

Now we need to replenish our fund to cover next years’ awardees! Our goal is to raise over $75,000, provided by at least 140 individual gifts. Gifts of all sizes are gratefully received - first by our Casa Scholarship Committee and later by our annual scholarship awardees. Your donor letter, with all the necessary information on how to make a donation, was in your box at reception last week. Your support of this so-worthy cause is important and rewarding - to both the recipient and the donor. So make sure you are one of the 140+ residents we hope will contribute this year! ~ Your Casa Scholarship Committee
