posted by Jim Kidney * CHPC member Jim Kidney in To Kill a Mockingbird with Little Theater of Rockville.  The Little Theater of Rockville is staging To Kill a Mockingbird at 8 p.m. on May 1 and 2, and 2 p.m. matinees on April 26 and May 3.  It is very timely, not only because Harper Lee has recently been in the news about her TKAM “prequel”, but because we have seen so many instances of late in which race and law enforcement have been at the forefront of our national debates.  It promises to be a good show and you can see Jim as the trial judge, onstage in a supporting role through most of the second act, as Atticus defends Tom Robinson, who is accused of raping a white woman.  Please contact Jim by March 19th (sooner rather than later) to inquire about discounted tickets.  The show is at the Scott Fitzgerald Theater on the campus of the Rockville Civic Center.  Directions can be found at http://www.rlt-online.org/directions.html

posted by Sally Stoecker * Court Appointed Special Advocates  — CASA—DC (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is a really important and worthy organization that always needs support. This is where I volunteered (2007-2011) and also worked part time as staff in 2009.   Volunteers are trained to represent foster care children in family court and to mentor and assist them outside of court–to make sure they are cared for properly…education, health, hygiene, etc.  I often lift up Lyashaw in prayer—I represented her until she aged out of the system at 21. We are still in touch and that has been a very special relationship.  Also, if you are thinking of volunteering somewhere in 2014, I highly recommend CASA (www.casadc.org)!  Many blessings, Sally
