Dear Fellow CARA Members:
It’s Fall, and that means it’s time for our CARA Fall Meeting.
Since last we met, members of the CARA Steering Committee have decided to step away from their responsibilities and make room for others to have a hand in organizing the activities of our group. We can be grateful for the fine and devoted service they have given over the years. Let’s all say Thanks! to:
Malachy McCarthy – President
Diane Pugh – Vice President
Sr. M. Joella Cunnane – Secretary
Joan Sweeney – Communications Coordinator
And, as you know, Richard Seidel who took care of the Treasury and Membership functions passed away in the Spring.
Right now Jerice Barrios and Patricia Carroll are answering the call to arrange our next education event and Business Meeting. At that meeting we would like to be able to install a full Steering Committee. Could you be part of that? Please consider adding your talents to help CARA remain vital and relevant to our members. Any one of the outgoing steer-ers would be happy to talk with you about the CARA jobs they have performed.
The topic for the education portion of the meeting will be Working With Volunteers and Interns. We are planning a panel presentation with several perspectives represented and with lots of opportunity for questions, answers and networking. As always there will be light refreshment and maybe even door prizes!
The time frame for the Meeting is late October to early November. We will keep you informed.
Please do consider becoming part of the Steering Committee.  If you would like more information, please contact Jerice Barrios [], Patricia Carroll [], or Malachy McCarthy []
Looking forward to seeing you at the CARA Meeting,
Jerice Barrios
Patricia Carroll
