CASA and the Children’s Advocacy Alliance are holding their annual flag raising to commemorate April as Child Abuse Awareness Month. This event is being held in Clinton Friday, April 21, at the Clinton Courthouse on the Square at noon.

Local judges (Judge Roger Hooper, Judge Chris Carnahan) will be attending, as will many other community leaders. CASA Executive Director Tess Fletcher will also be in attendance.

There will be information available on the need for more CASA volunteers in Van Buren County. This is a vital role in the lives of abused and neglected children.
