    First Presbyterian Church supports CARES: First Presbyterian Church in Dade City recently donated $1,500 to the CARES Crescent Enrichment Center. The check was accepted by Melinda Norman, manager of the center, and Charles Sobel, CARES chief financial officer. The church selected CARES as its mission project this year because of all the services it provides to the community, including caring for senior citizens and their caregivers. The funds were raised during Church Street Christmas, when the church gave free hot chocolate to thousands who attended the three nights of festivities. Although the beverages were free, donations were accepted. The church decided that since the money came from the community it should be given back to the community. Recognition was given to Clay Mickler, Scott Myer and Dave Heustin for their work during the event. The Crescent Center is one of four CARES senior centers in Pasco County.
