Trinidad Civic Club

The Trinidad Civic Club is selling jewelry in a joint effort to raise money for the Memorial Lighthouse relocation project at the harbor and for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates). 

Baroni Designs created a special edition of sterling-silver jewelry for CASA to benefit foster youth. The “It Matters!” theme, set in a starfish motif, makes a beautiful gift. Necklaces, bracelets and earrings and the “It Matters” pin are listed on the Trinidad Civic Club website ( at very reasonable prices.
