Since our last Chapter eblast, I have experienced 2 very exciting events! The first was on May 9 when I joined with 100 Hadassah members from all over the country for a Day on the Hill. The highlight for me was my meeting up close & personal with Dr. Jill Biden….
The second event was on May 17 when I was installed as your President for the second time. It was a real Centennial Event and I would like to thank the Chapter’s Past Presidents for creating such a memorable program… Finally I would like to wish all of you a Chag Sameach Shavout
