                          President's Ponderings


Shalom Members,

As we approach Chanukah and the end of the Hadassah year, our chapter can look back on many memorable events.  The year started with the award-winning "We Will for Jill" Event .  It was successful in bringing members of the community together in addition to raising money for Hadassah and Women's Health Education in memory of one of our wonderful members.  Barbara Goldstein "BG", our Deputy Executive Director of Hadassah Israel, spoke to us about Missions to Israel.  Ann Haendel spoke to us about BDS.  Yom Ha'Atzmaut  was toasted with a tour of the Orange Groves Winery.  Mah Jongg and yoga on the beach were relaxing activities.  We held Passover and Sukkot programs.

Recently the chapter honored its past and current presidents.  The chapter's history was recounted.   

These events were planned by your hard-working board.  The board cannot do all of this alone. We have a proud past and want to have a vibrant future.  YOUR help is needed to achieve that.  Contact me and tell me what skills you have that we can use in our chapter or we can train you.  Volunteer and learn about yourself and some hidden talents you might discover.


Thank you.

Harriet Stein
