Dear Cal Members,
Grants season has officially ended for Community Assistance League, and 36 Bonner County nonprofit projects are splitting a whopping $151,000 to continue their efforts to make our community an even better place to live. I can’t wait for June 20, when we will present checks to them and the amazing students who’ve earned scholarships. This season of giving has been made possible by the success of Bizarre Bazaar, but the details—the discussions and ultimate decisions—were made by 12 amazing, dedicated members. I am honored to have facilitated the process.
Heartfelt thanks for the committee:

Norma Bartenhagen, Susan Black, Lori Conner, Sherry Fulton, Marilyn Haddad, Donna Hutter, Esther Inselman, Denise Marley, Lilly Mitsui, Ann Nichols, Penny Switlik, and Linda Zinn.
Discussions were spirited—as they should be—but ultimately each was made collaboratively and usually unanimously. These ladies make me even prouder to be a member of CAL. Thank you.
Jan Harrison
Grants Chair
