I would like to give a big thank you to Phylis Ermann and her committee for a very successful Walkathon at the beginning of this month. We had beautiful weather (for a change) and the donations will allow Hadassah Medical Organization to continue doing research on Neuromuscular Diseases. Everyone worked very hard to make this event a success.

Another big thank you to Saradona Lefkowitz who opened her home to all the members of the Keepers of the Gate for dinner on April 30, the night of the deluge here in the Washington area. Despite the weather, the turnout was almost 100% and a good time was had by all. Please ask me how you can become a Keeper of the Gate.
