This scholarship covers all tuition toward a Jamestown Business College Associate’s Degree. “The students are selected (for the scholarship) by their Warren County Career Center instructor,” said marketing teacher Cathie Cummings, “based on their performance throughout their WCCC program. In this case for both of these students, it was the WCCC Marketing Program. We look at a combination of grades, effort, and attitude,” said Cummings.

CASA swearing in

The Court Appointed Special Advocate Program (CASA) held a 30-hour training this spring which resulted in the addition of three new CASA volunteers. Julie Moore, Kelly Johnson and Amanda Johnson were sworn in by the Honorable Maureen A. Skerda. President Judge.

Becoming a CASA volunteer and be rewarded with some of the most powerful and fulfilling experiences you can find. CASA is the only organization that empowers everyday citizens as appointed ?friends of the court ?. Volunteers fit well with the court as the American Justice System is built on juries; a body of citizens sworn to give a true verdict according to the evidence presented in a court of law.

In 1990 the inclusion of the CASA program in the Victims of Child Abuse Act, Congress affirmed the use of volunteers in our otherwise closed juvenile court system.

If you are interested in becoming a part of this program CASA of Warren and Forest Counties welcomes volunteers from all cultures, professions, ethnic and educations backgrounds. Your involvement can make a direct impact on a child?s life and perhaps generations to come. Call 723-4434 for more information or email CASA@jdfamilycenter.org.

Church lunch program

The First United Methodist Church, 200 Market Street in Warren, will begin a program of serving lunches to senior citizens every Friday in their Covert Room beginning Friday, June 1. It was felt, since the Allegheny Community Center is closed on Fridays due to funding restrictions, a service of noon lunches would benefit the seniors who are accustomed to eating at the ACC. The church is handicapped accessible to an elevator on the Second Street entrance. There is also handicapped parking in the church parking lot off Watson Place. The church welcomes anyone desiring a good lunch and good fellowship to join them. Cost of the lunch will be a donation of $3 or as able to pay.

Class to lunch

The Warren Area High School class of 1964 will meet on May 21 at noon at the Cable Hollow Golf Club. All members of the class and their spouses or significant others are welcome.

Caregivers’ Support Group meeting

The May meeting of the Caregivers’ Support Group will be held at noon on Monday, May 21, at the Grace United Methodist Church, Wesley Parlor, 501 PA Ave. E., Warren.

The Support Group meetings are open to any caregivers in the area, as well as those interested in learning more about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, and programs/services offered locally. A time for sharing of concerns will be included. In addition, at this meeting we will begin the four-part video series from The Alzheimer’s Project by HBO entitled “Memory Loss Tapes.” The first DVD covers the experience of memory loss from the point of view of the person with the disease, depicting what it is like to slowly lose one’s mind.

Those attending Monday’s Support Group are asked to enter the church building via the elevator entrance from the church parking lot. Bring a bag lunch and beverage, if desired. For more information about the meetings or new programs, call Karen at 723-9440 or Linda at 726-1199.
