At 7 AM we made a presentation to the Poultney Rotary Club about Dismas House and its wonderful mission to help those who have left the Vermont Corrections system. This helpful support system provides counseling, housing, meals and comraderie in Rutland. When it costs $43,000 to house an inmate in jail and $17,000 to support a person at Dismas House it is a no-brainer as to why Dismas Hosue is needed, not only for financila reasons but for the social intergration that will help these men and women regain their dignity to be productive members of our community.
The Rotary Club members, led by President Ed McHale and Crispin White , support Dismas House's activities and hope to attend the Auction and Dinner on May 20.
Would anyone like to take out an ad in the Program Ad Book, too?
Thanks to Valerie for inviting us to speak at the meeting.
