2009 May Lunch at Hillel
Our annual meeting was held at Hillel on May 20th.
Michele Meyrowitz handled the registrations. As the members signed in, they were each given a red beaded necklace to wear.
As they found out later, the necklace is to remind them to pick up one of the new Hadassah Tzedakah Red Boxes when they arrive. For years Hadassah has had the Blue JNF boxes and now they want to try the Red Box. My box was passed around at the meeting and I was surprised at how full it was when I got home. This is what they will look like:
Our speaker was Carol Ann Schwartz, President of the Central States Region. Carol gave a very interesting discussion of how she became involved with Hadassah, highlights of Hadassah acivities in Israel and a small part about the Madoff affair which left everyone wanting more!
Carol Ann officially installed me as President of the chapter...so now you are officially stuck with me.
