Hello, I am Barbara Cassin, Chairperson for CAD volleyball tournament. I need to inform you that the volleyball tournament will be cancelled on April 4th. The reason is because of the coronavirus concerns. This is for your safety. I apologize that we have to cancel. Those teams who have sent their team fees, I will return them to you. We may be able to host the tournament again in the fall or next spring but no date has been set up yet. I will keep you informed. Again my apologies.
Please help spread the word that the tournament is cancelled on April 4th If you have any questions feel free to email me at email@example.com
A message from our CAD President Luisa…
Hello everyone. I am Luisa Gasco-Soboleski, President of Connecticut Association of the Deaf, CAD.
Wishing you all a very happy New Year! May 2020 bring you all much happiness, good health and peace.
Let me explain the goals of CAD for next two years. We want to work together collaboratively meaning working with other deaf/hard of hearing organizations in Connecticut. Some of the goals will be: To improve the VRI/Interpreters in the hospital settings, mental health services, education and senior citizens services.
CAD officers including myself, Lucy Trusock(Vice President), Barbara Cassin (Secretary), Robert Backofen (Treasurer), Milmaglyn Morales (Law Chair), Representatives: Paul Ditimi (Southwestern CT ), Barbara Bajurny (Northwestern), Danielle Guy (Eastern), Alexandra McGee (South Central), Barbara Morris (North Central), Dr. Harvey Corson Legislative Chair and Sandra Inzinga (Past President) want to work with you, deaf/hard of hearing/deaf blind community.
As you know that Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream, so we all do have the same vision. It is important that we all work together. We cannot do all the work ourselves (alone) and need you to be part of the community. The board wants you to be part of us by joining and working with us.
For next few weeks, we will set up vlogs explaining our missions and please do share your feedback with us. With your support we can make our state a better place for deaf/hard of hearing/deaf blind citizens.
