Past President, Ada Edwards
Vice President, Vacant
Secretary, Dale Tassi
I have worked in social work for 30 years -26 of those at CPRI. For many years I admired the amazing work that VOCPRI has done for families and children. Joining the board after I retired was one way I could give back to this organization and all the wonderful work it has done. Besides that I am loving retirement- star gazing, exercising and gardening are of few of the things that make up every blessed day.
