For those who have not had the opportunity to see the article in today's North Port Sun, I have attached a copy for your information.  In this article, the newspaper recognizes and focuses on a real achievement -- being a part of bringing 3 worthwhile charities to North Port.  With the fine support of the members, we have helped these organizations locate in the City so those in need do not have to travel to get help.  


Neuro Challenge Foundation -- provide services to persons and families experiencing Parkinson's.
Mental Health Community Center -- provides services for adults with mental illness and disabling emotional problems.
Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center (SPARCC) -- helps rape and abuse victims and their families.


You, the membership, get the credit for these accomplishments.  You should feel very proud to be a part of this concerted effort.  Thank you so much for your support.


Rozier Sharp, President
