“Did you know that at every CSC meeting there’s a guest presenter that shares valuable and useful information?” said Bess Wilfong, Executive Director of Angels Arms.  “And the best part of it is that we get to learn about this in a power-packed format–usually 15-20 minutes. It’s like a mini seminar. I have learned so much from each presenter and always walk away feeling enlightened and wanting to share the information.”
