     For the past several months volunteers have been meeting one-on-one with children
who had been abused or neglected in their family setting.   And by all accounts, Court
Appointed Special Advocates Fox Cities is working well, meeting the needs of children
who had been living in unpleasant, unsafe conditions.
     CASAFC Executive Director Maria Turner told us they have about a dozen matches;
the children range in age from 18 months to 14 years.  Another 15 advocates were
sworn-in recently, ready to accept assignments.
     Susan Sykes has been meeting with her child once a week for about three-months. 
The child likes to play school; however,  Susan is the student, so you know who teaches.
Susan has a personal story you'll enjoy.
     Sherry Olson Rogers retired recently and was looking for a way to give back to the
community.  She found the opportunity, as a newly-approved advocate.  Because Rogers
has done some tutoring of youngsters she would like to work with a younger child.
      Their stories are part of an Assignment Fox Cities posted soon on our website,
whby.com.   You'll enjoy.
