With the 2021 season comes changes both big and small, whether it’s to do with COVID-19 restrictions or staff. One of the welcome changes is the arrival of Heather Lotzar, CSA’s bright and bubbly new Youth Activities Director. Though things may be different this year, she hopes to bring a fresh new start to the youth program while still staying true to CSA’s strong sense of community.HLotzar
