Well, spring is here, for which we are thankful. I'm sad to say that as of this writing, unfortunately, the world is not in a better place. We can get a respite from the horrors of everyday newscasts by coming to the JCC and socializing with our friends.
On Tuesday, March 8 we had a normal “lox Tuesday” business meeting and birthday party. We were advised that elections would be held at our next business meeting in April. Now is your chance to have some input. The only position that will be changed is that of our president of the senior club. Nancy Bayuk, after doing a great job for nine years, has decided to retire (she wants to spend more time with her family). Heather Jackson and Anita Post are the two candidates running for this position. During the February business meeting Heather gave us a little bit of her background, and Anita spoke with us at the March meeting. Make a reservation and come to our meeting on April 12th and vote for the candidate of your choice. You must be present to vote – no mail-in ballots!
On Thursday, March 10, Katy Krevsky explained what integral sound healing is and how beneficial it is in relation to chronic stress and inflammation. We participated in a meditation session which I found quite relaxing. Several people signed up to partake in a few sessions with Katy to help her with getting her diploma for sound healing. Norman made sure we were well-fed with his outstanding pasta and
meat sauce prior to Katy’s presentation.
On Tuesday, March 15, John Maietta took us to Morocco. The program was wonderful and we were all sorry when it ended. Prior to John’s presentation, Norman made sure we did not go hungry. We had a delicious lunch of baked tilapia and orzo. Last, but not least, after cleaning up, the exodus to the Miller started for Mah Jongg and Rummikub.
On Thursday, March 17 (not wanting to sound like a broken record), but once again a fantastic lunch of stuffed peppers was served. We at the senior club are so fortunate to have both Norman as a caterer and Cheryl as our advisor, both of whom do such amazing jobs. After lunch Rabbi Muroff spoke about Purim. There was quite a bit of interaction among the audience, who I am certain always look forward to having Rabbi join us.
Other programs scheduled for March are: on the 22nd, Bingo; March 24th, movie day - At War With the Army will be shown. This is a Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis classic; On March 29th, a much looked-forward-to return of Dr. Donald Koones, who will lecture on Frank Lloyd Wright; and on the 31st, we will have game day.
On March 23rd there is a trip scheduled (for those members who had signed up) to Dutch Apple theater to see Singin’ In The Rain.
The above-mentioned programs will take place after this article was written and I will give you the highlights in the next issue.
Hope you stay well, are properly vaccinated, and responsibly wear masks.
We are looking forward to seeing you at lunch. Take care.
