 Sisterhood President’s Message, December 2018

December is a busy month for the Sisterhood.  Sunday, December 2 was the Talent Show and annual Hannukah party.  It was an All Temple Event spearheaded by the Religious School Parent’s Association. The Preschool and Sisterhood participated.  The Talent Show was a huge success!  The Sisterhood was one of several wonderful acts.  Many  thanks to Marlene Dreyfuss and Lucy Berman who wrote our song and Anya Marshall who directed us.  Also thanks to all who sang, Susie Berman, Marlene Dreyfuss, Shirley Abramson, Lucy Berman, and Fran Bourne Johnson and Anya Marshall.  You did a great job!

It is wonderful to have our own Eileen Martin back after her accident and surgery.  Thanks for helping with the serving.  Many thanks to Cherie Rye who headed up the Food Committee. Thanks also to the members of the RSPA and anyone else who made latkes or brought something else.
