Summit Toastmasters Learn About CASA


The Summit Toastmasters learned about CASA or Court Appointed Special Advocate from speaker Jim Shaw of Silverthorne at their December meeting at the Frisco Town Hall.  CASA’s are appointed by the courts to represent the best interests of children who may be abused or neglected.  Over 3 million children in the United States may fall into these categories, according to Shaw.  He made a strong appeal for more volunteers for the CASA program which was launched in 1977.  He noted each volunteer makes a difference in a child’s life.

Ryan Hawkins, President, and Pat Moore, Education Vice President, note that Toastmasters provides opportunities for people to enhance their communication and leadership skills and address important issues in our world.  Toastmasters is a self improvement organization which provides opportunites for impromptu and prepared speaking.  It meets on the 1st and 3d Tuesdays of the month at 6:30 p.m. at the Frisco Town Hall.  Guests are always welcome.  Call Alan Swartz at 719-239-0269 for more information.
