Our program today was about the Lisa Project. Suzie Skadan with the Visalia Unified School District was the presenter. The Lisa project is a presentation about Child Abuse, and this time around it is being presented in a classroom. You may remember that a few years ago the same Lisa Project was in a trailer, now it has been scaled down a little but still has the same
impact for those who go through it. It takes about ten minutes. It highlights the impact and the ramifications of child abuse. It will be at the rotary Theater through tomorrow, Friday Oct 3rd.
