    Next month, March 27th from 7 to 8:30 pm we will be hosting a guest speaker at Cascadia:  Hilarie Cash, Co-Founder of a Northwest area video gaming and internet treatment program, reSTART. Ms. Cash will be addressing the topic of technology addiction, which will include time to answer audience questions after her presentation.

    This event will take place in our gym and would ask that your children stay home (as no childcare will be provided). Below is a recommended reading list and a resource list provided by Ms. Cash.

    Hope to see you March 27th!

    Warm regards,

    Tammy Foulk

    Cascadia Counselor
