On Monday, November 17, the Library Friends of Payson are pleased to have Lyndsie Butler, our local CASA coordinator, give a presentation on Court Appointed Special Advocates to the community. CASA volunteers are appointed by a judge to work with children in court dependency cases. The CASA volunteers get to know the child and important people in the foster child’s life and report everything they learn directly to the judge. They have a positive impact on the foster child’s life; many adults who were children in foster care say that their CASA volunteer was the one person they could trust throughout the dependency process.
We invite the community to hear Ms. Bu tler talk about the challenges faced by children in foster care and the need for CASA volunteers.
The Library Friends of Payson meeting, which is held in the library meeting room, will start with a short business meeting at 10:00 a.m., and the program will begin at 10:30 a.m. The public is invited to both the business meeting and the free one hour program. Light refreshments will be served. If you have any questions, please call the library at 928- 474-9260.
