Exciting news for all CASS staff and clients:

A few years ago CASS created a cookbook which was used to raise money for our Clients for Christmas baskets.  This cookbook was created by CASS staff, clients, and family members. The cookbook was a huge success and holds many recipes dear to both staff and clients. .................and yes you guessed right ………………………………………………it is time for the
 Re-release……………………………….

  All proceeds will be put towards
“Holiday” baskets that will be created for some of our
CASS clientele for the 2010 season.
Remember a cookbook is a great way to say" I love you” and
“Happy  Labour Day”

Someone – please contact Tara at the front desk you may purchase books at the following costs:
