With CID being so active in the community lately, we've decided to move some of our postings on our NEWS page to this newly developed Blog page. The NEWS page will continue to offer our quarterly newsletters as well as any press associated with CID and other ILCs. This Blog will be a venue for us to share with you some of the events in the community that we are a part of, as well as those that we would like to help promote.
Please feel free to contribute and make any suggestions. Thank you for your continued support!
