A wise person once said, "Make your life exciting. Find out what gives you joy and makes your heart dance and do it." MWI has many activities that will help you to do this, and we operate for all 12 months. Our 30 study group leaders are always busy planning and executing programs that are FREE to members. Programs incude professional speakers as well as programs from the many talented MWI members. Our gals donate their expertise to entertain and teach us new skills, or educate us on various subjects.
Many new and exciting events are highlighted on this website. I hope that you will take advantage of these things. "Make your life exciting..."
MWI had three successful fund raisers during the Fall quarter: Trivia, the Fall Gala, and the Chanukah party. These were fantastic events. I hope that you were among the lucky ones who attended them.
The Fall Gala is an annual event. Everyone had a wonderful day at the Westbury Manor, thanks to the hard work of Sharon Wallach, Polly Hammer and their team. The day included a boutique, a continental breakfast, lunch and entertainment by comedian Robin Fox.
Trivia was back by popular demand. It tested the knowledge of your team on many subjects. It also tested your recall of facts long since learned. Thanks to Arlene Becker and Taffy Goldberg and their huge team, this program was a success and LOTS OF FUN.
The Chanukah party was held at a new venue. The festivities incuded entertainment by our own chorus, the Meadowlarks, professional entertainer Shlomo Haviv, lunch, and the lighting of many menorahs. Thanks to the team of Judy Fishman, Polly Hammer and many MWI members, this event was a success.
The profits from these events will be awarded to three Long Island based charities at our June event.
As we approach the New Year 2018, I wish you and your families a very healthy, happy new year.
