Vol. 43
I would like to welcome all those who are new to the executive committee and those returning members; I look forward to working with all of you for another successful Hadassah year (and 3 months).  As you may know we are moving our program year to the calendar gradually, so this year which began in May, 2012 will end in September, 2013.  The following year will run from October, 2013 through December, 2014 and then we will be on the same schedule as the calendar beginning in January, 2015.  So thank you to all of you who took positions on your group boards. 

We are expecting to have several new events this year. Some are still in the planning stages so I am asking for volunteers who would like to begin working on these new events to contact me.  I wish all of you a happy, productive summer.

I hope to see all of you at the Silver Diner tonight between 4-9 PM. It is always fun to see Hadassah women in their red t-shirts acting as waitresses!
