“A Happy and Successful Fall and Winter Makes for a Happy and Successful Organization”
I am so very proud of our chair people who have put so much time and energy into planning our events. Marlene Goldberg and Saralee Mogilner are extremely resourceful in managing all the details for our Adventures In Learning programs. These programs have been so well attended and have brought in extra funds for our philanthropic endeavors.
Thanks to Eva Broude in helping to arrange transportation issues. Those in need of a lift, call Eva at 952.544.5948. My eternal thanks and gratitude to Beverly London who handles all details so efficiently and still manages to publish our COMPASS and to get out our mail on a timely basis.
A special praise to the hostesses at our board meetings for helping to make our meetings delightful. Chairs Eva Broude and Judy Serrell can be depended on for organizing board members to bring treats. I would like to encourage any interested member that by joining our board you can become more involved in the inner workings of our wonderful organization. Just call a board member to let us know you would like to do this. We meet on the second Monday of the month.
Carole Bender-Resnick has done an exceptional job in keeping our membership informed on many topics by providing via the computer. Carole now has some health problems she is dealing with and can no longer do this. Carole, thanks from the entire membership for all you have done in this capacity over the years. Her job is currently being filled by Sherri Steinman whom I thank for taking over when the call came to do so.
The Chanukah Party Celebration was entertaining and enjoyable. Celebrating the holiday together is a real meaningful “bonding experience” for our group. Chanukah Chair, Gerry Feldman did a marvelous job. She was as diligent in the capacity of chairperson for the party, as she has been when she sent out our Scholarship donation cards. Thank you, Gerry. Fruma Goldfarb is now taking care of our Scholarship Donation cards. Cheri and Art Rolnick ballroom danced beautifully together and explained the technique of each dance. It was fascinating. I want to thank them, plus the lovely music provided by Rita Lusky on the piano.
Winter has ended and spring has finally arrived. Now I am looking forward to seeing you all at our May Spring Luncheon and the installation of our officers.
These last two years have been very successful for BOND. We have added 12 new members. As I leave this presidency, I want to express my thanks to All of our departments which have run so well. This is due to the diligence of each and every one of you, our treasured members. It is your participation that builds our success and makes us continue to thrive. Thank you for succeeding in every aspect of our organization from attending programs, book club, short story group, bridge, Qwirkle, dinner club and luncheons.

With Fond Regards for another terrific BOND year,
