MWI is into its ninth year. The Jewish calendar is into its 5778th year. This is the time of year to wish everyone "Good Health and a Good Year" regardless of your religious beliefs. Therefore, on behalf of the Board of MWI, I wish our members, their families, and all the people they hold dear, GOOD HEALTH AND A LONG LIFE.
MWI operates twelve months a year. Our study groups vice presidents Marilin Smolin and Estelle Barton keep our 30 study group chairs busy planning programs. Our fund raising vice presidents, Nina Grosswirth and Lorraine Schuman, help in planning our events.
This past summer we had many successful programs. The Meadowlarks held their annual concert under the direction of Ellen Zipkin. Susan Kromol chaired our fantastic Brunch and Fashion Show at Lord and Taylor. This event was very popular. However, due to limitations placed by the venue, many of you were closed out of attending. We are looking into running this event again. Suni Fay offered a wonderful museum trip to Wilderstein Estate while Phyllis Birnbaum ran a successful Dine Around at the Lisbon Cafe. The following study groups: Chapter Two, led by Barbara Goldstein and Judy Fischman; Culture Connection, led by Shirley Hartman and Goldie Medowar; and Timely Events in Judaism, led by Lorraine Schuman, all had excellent speakers. The singles study group, under the leadership of Arleen Smith, ran many weekend programs which included a boat trip and attendance at various regional shows.
This quarter, we will again offer three outstanding events: the Fall Gala, Trivia and the Chanukah Party. See Events pages on this website for details. Register early so you don't get closed out. The study groups will continue to present programs that entertain or enlighten you while using speakers from our own talented membership.
I look forward to meeting you and greeting you at our study groups and events.
Susan Gould President, Meadowbrook Women's Initiative
