Happy Holidays from CIRC

Happy Holidays to All! The Board of Directors and all of us at CIRC wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

We appreciate all that you have brought to our organization this past year, and look forward to a fun, new year, with a little break from continuing education after April 1!

Food Bank of Delaware Thanks CIRC

Ed Matarese and the Food Bank of Delaware are very appreciative of the food donations by CIRC members. Thank you for bringing an item to share to the December Holiday Luncheon!

We were also pleased to contribute, on your behalf, $517.00 to the Needy Family Fund this year as part of our 50-50 Cash Raffle. Bill Lower was the lucky winner of the matching 50-50 contributions and has pledged to help the Delaware KIDS Fund, so your money was well spent this year. Thank you!
