The Rotary club surprised club member Sharon Stinard with a short ceremony honoring her key role in founding the Community Against Family Abuse (CAAFA).  The organization is celebrating its 20th year and has grown into an irreplaceable regional resource in providing services to victims of domestic and sexual violence.  Harvey Clark presented Sharon with a commemorative plaque and presented CAAFA's Executive Director Dorian Townsend with a check for $1,000 in Sharon's honor.  Sharon also received a pin for her Paul Harris Fellow + 1 award.
Sharon spoke briefly to thank the club and to stress the ongoing need for financial support to keep CAAFA healthy.  She praised the excellent staff and the volunteers that keep CAAFA going forward.  Sharon is a long-term (18 years) member of the Superstition Mountain Rotary Club.  She has twice served as club President and has served on the club's Board of Directors numerous times.  She is a Paul Harris Fellow.  Debbie Jusko of our club is a member of the CAAFA Board.  Branden Biggs, another CAAFA Board member, was present today to honor Sharon.
