Mercier was the husband of our Executive Director, Donna. He died suddenly
in May 2000 while we were planning
our 1st golf event. He created sets for our summer productions, making sure
they were sturdy and safe for our kids to use. He also purchased the building
at 113 Summit Street for our use. After his death, Donna donated it to our organization.
Robert was proud of the work of our CAST kids did, not just performing, but working together towards a goal
from fundraising to behind the scenes work. We honor his memory
by continuing with this tournament each year.
