Sun Lakes Jewish Congregation Sisterhood news

Suzy Ziegler

Sun Lakes Sisterhood is up and running for this year. For example, at our first meeting on October 15, we’ve got a great program planned. Gwen Tierney, a docent from the Phoenix Art Museum, will be presenting a program (with slides) on the Fashions of Downton Abbey and the changing World of Fashion. Her talk highlights the glamorous fashions adorning the aristocratic Crawley family and the functional clothes worn by their staff. Gwen joined the docent program at the museum in 1999 and has been an active participant ever since. Her recent focus has been on the Fashion Design Gallery.

We know you will all love this program.

That date is also our New Member luncheon. So, anyone who has never been a member before will be invited to that luncheon which precedes the business/program meeting. As usual, the meeting will be at the Chapel Center starting at 1:00 p.m. but you have to let us know who you are if you want to be included. Call Anita at 895-8203 or Norma at 631-889-2048.

The board would like to take this opportunity to thank some of the members of the business community who graciously and generously contributed goods and/or funds to our Card Party last February. A partial list (more next month) is Dr. Edward Tokatlian/Associated Internists of Ahwatukee; MICA Creek-Sagamore Capital Partners, LLC.; Millennium Lighting LLC; Rue Bax; Dr. Scott Kriener/Ahwatukee Sports & Spine; Jim McFazden, Border States Industries, Inc.; Dr. Randall Porter/Neurological Associates, LTD; Debi Rizzo/L’mage Salon Sudios; Kelli’s Nails; Alex the Salon; Southwest Jewelry & Coin; Jeffrey S. Garelick, D.D.S./Ocotillo Dental Care, P.C.

This is only a partial list; more next time.

Ladies don’t forget to send your dues ($25) to Phyllis Mandel. Phyllis also collects for Toys for the Heart.

Two important dates to put on your calendars now – February 2, 2016, is Card Party. Planning for that is well under way. Also Sisterhood Shabbat is February 12. Start thinking about how you would like to help on that.
