Social Event: The Times They Are A Changin’: A Flashback To The 60’s! 
There has never been a decade quite like the sixties: the diversity, conflicts, hope, change, music, and the dance crazes will all be revisited tonight. Come and celebrate this influential decade with a tour of the CASN National Office, dinner, a silent auction, music, trivia, and the CASN staff in costume. All proceeds of this event will support the Dr. Pat Griffin Fund of CASN.
