Yesterday on Wednesday, September 12th, the Lyndhurst Women’s Club courteously hosted Bergen County CASA at their first meeting of the year. After treating CASA to a wonderful, homemade lunch, club President Rosemary McGuigan introduced Executive Director Ellen Davis to the 52-member group.
Following an overview of CASA’s duties and goals, the projector sparked on and the short film Re-Moved began. We at CASA have already spoken at length in the past about the undeniable impact this film has. Even on repeat viewings, it remains a painfully accurate portrait of a foster child’s life as well as a tremendous catalyst for starting a conversation on the subject. This screening was no different.
The women of Lyndhurst, clearly touched by the images on screen, were moved to enthusiastically engage with Ellen during the Q&A session.
All of us at Bergen County CASA are grateful to the members of the Lyndhurst Women’s Club for affording us time to come in and share our message. If you’re interested in having Bergen County CASA come to speak with your organization, e-mail Connor Moriarty at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
