Judge swears in advocates for children

The Clatsop Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Program has announced that on Dec. 5, six new volunteers joined approximately 36 other dedicated CASA volunteers in serving abused and neglected children in the Clatsop County child welfare system. Judge Dawn McIntosh conducted the swearing-in ceremony for, from left, Francesca Lazzari, Tod Lundy, Carole Elder, Sarah Jones, Karen Baltier-Long and Bethany Fritz-Gunn, each of whom has completed over 35 hours of training in order to be able to effectively advocate for children. Volunteer training is available again in the spring; the dates will be announced on the CASA website. If interested, contact Francesca Lazzari or Ann Lederer at 503-338-6063, email casa@clatsopcasa.org or go to clatsop-casa.org
