From our President
I hope everyone had a good summer and managed to keep cool. Your board has been really busy this summer planning many fun activities and one really major fund raiser. This is the biggest event we have ever attempted and we need the support of our membership to make it a success. The gala is called Ya Gotta Have Heart and will be held on January 28, 2017, at Temple Israel. There will be a journal as part of the event, and all monies raised will be earmarked for some amazing heart research going on at Hadassah Hospital.
We need people to sell ads for the journal and tickets to the event. I really hope that you will all pitch in to make this a huge success.
Our Sept. 20th meeting at Tradewinds Restaurant at Duran Golf Club with Steve Agid as speaker should be really interesting, and I hope that many of you will attend with friends and/or spouses. Please see the front page for details. We need reservations as soon as possible. I look forward to seeing you there.
