President’s Message
By Carolyn Latz

Dear BOND Members and Friends:

As we turn from Summer to Fall, and Rosh Hashanah is upon us, I am so thankful for the wonderful people in our organization and the terrific successes we have had as a group. While there are many people who I wish to thank, I only have space to mention a few who have been especially involved.

Thank you to Saralee Mogilner for conducting all of the BOND board meetings in my absence. She did a great job. Thank you, also, to Saralee Mogilner and Marlene Goldberg for another outstanding job with programming. Our programs are filling up with more people than ever before. Adventures in Learning is where you will find our Upcoming Events. Check out our many interesting and fun activities and invite your friends and relatives to join us.

A big Thank You to Holly Wartnick for closing out the previous website and setting up BOND’s updated website and monitoring it. Our new website is http://www.bondtc.org. Please visit it and give us feedback.

Nettie Nabedrick and her Fabulous Committee did a marvelous job organizing the Book Author Event this year. It was very successful. We had the largest turnout we have ever had both for the evening and daytime programs. Also, thank you to Maraline Slovut, Chair of the AdBook Committee. (copy enclosed). Judy Sherman chaired the Scholarship Committee for many years and we all appreciate her so much. Lenore Miller has agreed to be the new Chair. All members can join this committee. If interested in participating, contact Lenore at 952.545.8800.

For ten years Gerry Feldman handled our donations to BOND’s Scholarship Fund. She did an efficient job and we are thankful for her time and commitment. We have a new chair, Fruma Goldfarb 612.930.9409. Thank you to Maureen Fine for her detailed and dedicated work as Registrar this past year.

We now have a Registrar, Linda Gilfix, who will be taking reservations for the Adventures in Learning Programs. A big hurrah for Eva Broude, who is in charge of the “Give-A-Ride/Get-A-Ride” info center. Thank you, Eva, for organizing this important service. Contact Eva at 952.544.5948.

I was so excited with my son-in-law running for state Attorney General that I may have inadvertently included some BOND members in my mailing. BOND is a non-profit organization and as such is non political.
