We are coming up on a busy time for Sisterhood and TAS. Please be sure to put the following events on your calendar:
Thursday, September 19, 2019 is our first general meeting of the new year. The evening promises to be very special as we will hear from our own Phyllis Meyers, a Jewish educator as well as a teacher of special education, and the lovely wife of Rabbi Kalfus, when she leads us in a session on Jewish story-telling. The evening starts at 7 pm in the Social Hall.
Sunday, September 22, 2019 at 1 pm in the Social Hall we will be getting together to make our own emergency kits. Cost is $25 per kit for Members and Friends of Sisterhood, $35 for guests. Please bring your own backpack or other bags to hold all your emergency supplies, and we will provide the supplies. Make one for each of your family members, or for anyone else you choose. Please RSVP to Phyllis Bigelson at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know how many kits you want to make. Payment can be made at the door.
Thursday, October 17, 2019 is our annual Sukkot celebration at the home of Jo and Jim Schwartz. Attendance is free to Members and Friends of Sisterhood, $5 for guests. This is one of our favorite annual events, and this year promises to be no exception.
Spotlight on Sisterhood
For this week’s Spotlight on Sisterhood, we would like to introduce you to Joann Averill.
Joann is currently serving as co-Membership Vice President, and is in her second year in that position. She previously served as recording secretary. She joined Sisterhood two years ago looking for friendship and activities and, as she put it because “volunteering makes me happy.”
When her work schedule permits (she is a pharmacist and often on call), Joann can be found subbing as an Oneg Hostess, working the Mah Jongg tournament, or serving on one committee or another to help bring our extra programs to light.
Her hobbies include knitting, travelling and reading. She also makes jewelry and will be a vendor at the Holiday Boutique this year, so be sure and stop by to say hello and check out her beautiful creations.
Joann is a warm and caring individual, who never fails to help when she can. Our Sisterhood is truly blessed to have her on the Executive Board.
By now you should have received your electronic membership packet, which includes our schedule of events and membership application. If you have not rejoined Sisterhood for this year, please be sure to do so. As you know, spouses and other non-Temple members can also be a part of Sisterhood by joining as Friends. For any questions, please contact Joann Averill (email@example.com) or Tammy Singer at firstname.lastname@example.org. The membership application can also be found on our website at www.tassisterhood.org. Join Sisterhood and get free or discounted admission to all of our events!
SPOTLIGHT ON SISTERHOOD MEMBERS
This year we are trying something a little different. Each week we will spotlight a member of Sisterhood to help us all get to know one another a bit better. This week, please get to know:
For those of you who do not know Robyn, she is a true representative of Sisterhood. Robyn is currently our Sisterhood Treasurer, but in her 20 years of commitment she has served as Membership Vice President, Programming Vice-President, Education Vice-President and is a Past President as well. Perhaps her greatest claim to fame is that she has chaired, organized and produced our annual Holiday Boutique for more years than we can count.
Robyn is married to Joe, who himself is a past president of MoTas, and they have one son, Robert (age 28). Robert recently became engaged and a wedding is being planned for January 2021.
Meeting new people and having somewhere to volunteer her time, were the reasons Robyn got involved in Sisterhood. She stays involved because of the connections she has made, the ability to be creative in planning events, the joy she gets in organizing, planning and volunteering and the personal support she has found.
If you have not met Robyn yet, go up and introduce yourself. Go up and chat with her about mah jongg, theater, travel or TAS. Almost anyone can point her out to you, and she is welcoming and friendly. Robyn can probably answer any questions you have, and she is a great person to get to know.
Your presidents send a weekly email with upcoming events and interesting information. emails are posted here, so if you miss one, you can always find out what was said.
