  Offering varied activities helps CAST to continue our current growth.  Let us know what you would enjoy doing and try your hand at sponsoring that activity.  It's simple, just let us know what, when & where and we'll put it in the next month's SCRIPT.  Remember that CAST provides appetizers at the 1st & 3rd Happy Hours of each month.

  New Social Chair -Sally Lawson

I can still use your input as to what interests you have and ideas of what events you would like to see on our calendar.  It is very easy to host an event!!  We need volunteers!!!  Thanks to the members that have come forward to volunteer in April.  But we still need your help.  We are all in this together and your participation is vital.  It is a Volunteer Organization!!!

I hope to hear from you soon, so we can keep the CAST calendar full.

JASPER WINERY SUMMER CONCERT SERIES  ----  As taken from the Jasper Winery website - "Held every Thursday from 6-9 p.m.  Enjoy free live music on the lawn.  We'll be serving wine, sangria and Madhouse beer by the glass ($5-6) as well as grilling up burgers and brats ($6).  We'll have regular appearances by the Chocolate Stam gelato cart -yes, you can even have a wine or beer gelato float - as well as the Gusto Pizza truck.  We have some chairs and tables but it's not a bad idea to bring some chairs or blankets as well.  As a reminder, all ages are welcome but please leave the pets at home.  And since it's a free event, please celebrate the evenings enjoying our wine and beer (other alcoholic beverages will need to stay at home).  Yay for summer!"

I have been to this many times in the past few years and it is a very pleasant, relaxing evening.  Plan on attending the majority of these concerts.  I will have my chair set up under the trees on the east side of the lawn.  The music starts at 6:00 but I usually get there well before 5:30 to get a parking spot and a place to sit.  Feel free to invite your friends and neighbors!
