2009 70th Anniversary Party
70th Anniversary Party
We had a really big crowd for our 70th Anniversary Party and a good time for all. President Liz Morley introduced our speaker, Michael Goldstein, from the American Friends of the Magan David Adom in Israel. Michael spoke of his own experiences as a volunteer in Israel in 2006.
Past President Sandy Goodman presented a "20 Year Stroll Down Memory Lane" which reminded us about all the fun things we have done, the speakers we have had and the fundraisers we have been involved in.
Cantor Pamela Schiffer sang a beautiful tribute to all the past Presidents who attended: Dorothy Silk, Gaby Kende, Anita Baron, Elaine Pearlman, Lois Simon, Ethel Anthony, Gale Schiamberg, Ethel Brody and Sandy Goodman. Cantor then went on and continued with a little song-fest centered around "Tikkun Olam". We have beautiful pictures of them on our Photo Gallery.
Small gifts were given to four people there who have been life members of Hadassah for 45 years: Dorothy Silk, Leanor Reizen, Gussie Shanker and Anita Baron. Tree Certificates were presented to our past presidents along with a rose and a Mega-Million lottery tickets. Regardless of the outcome of the lottery drawing, they are already 'winners' for Hadassah.
The evening concluded with a drawing for a door-prize donated by member Jill Mittleman, owner of "Pretty Sweet Pretzels" (www.prettysweetpretzels.com). Ethel Brody was the winner of that treat.
