CASA Light of Hope Ceremony

During April, CASA programs across the nation light candles to remember children who suffer from abuse and/or neglect and offer a symbol of hope all children may have a safe and permanent home. The “Light of Hope” event aims to increase awareness of these children’s plight and to invite new volunteers and supporters.
Tri-County CASA’s Light of Hope Ceremony will be April 17 at Baxley City Hall at 7 p.m. Edith Anderson will be the speaker. “The Star Thrower” by Joel Barker will be shared by one of Tri-County CASA’s volunteers. Recipients of the “Light of Hope” awards will be recognized for the difference they have made in the life or lives of children.
The highlight of the evening will be the swearing in of two Court Appointed Special Advocates, Melissa Clare and Pam Mosley-Holmes, who will have completed training in National CASA’s Volunteer Curriculum, attended court proceedings, a Department of Family and Children Services’ protocol meeting, background checks, and fingerprinting. Alex Johnson, Appling County Juvenile Court Judge, will preside.
