Bryan Hasse discusses “First Light” Program
Twenty-one OWLS gathered on March 22 for a potluck which featured 6 great desserts.  There were also several main dishes and salads.  Tables were decorated with salt and pepper shakers.  Roger gave the blessing. Sgt. Bryan Hasse of the Town of Beloit Police Dept. gave a presentation on a relatively new program entitled “First Light”.  It is a short term shelter program that bridges the gap for urgent or emergency situations.  It supports first responders to provide safety and comfort for those experiencing a crisis.  It is a partnership between area hotels and businesses to provide shelter to the people at no cost.  Current hotel partners include Best Western of S. Beloit, Ramada Inn and Baymont Inn of Janesville.  It normally provides one night lodging.  Bryan is also famous for the lighted Christmas house in Garden Village. Dave M reported $49 donations for a total of $79.50 in the treasury.
