Love this mission report from NE Texas Wing Leader Rob Garrett:

This is my newfound CASA friend, Linda Bacon, on her first trip in a single-engine airplane to Beaumont, TX.

“My, this is small,” was her first comment whereby I replied – “Yes, but the view is spectacular!”

Immediately after we became airborne she was photographing the entire flight (including the landing) stating how great it was!

Now she is looking for another excuse to go flying!

Court-Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers are the voices for abused and neglected children. They gather information and make recommendations to help judges decide what is best for each child.
