Dear Greater Boston Members,
Can you believe it’s that time again? Time to squeeze everything out of summer that we can, time to realize that the High Holidays are not that far in the future, and time to jump into a fresh, new year in BNC. This year will be wonderful!
We look forward to our annual Book and Author Luncheon and we have arranged some fascinating authors. After the luncheon, you’ll have an opportunity to purchase the books and have the authors sign them personally for you. You will notice that we are having it at The Lantana, where we enjoyed it last year. We felt they gave us delicious food, fabulous service and an excellent price, which allows us to give a larger contribution to Brandeis and the BNC Scholarship Fund. This is our largest fundraiser of the year and supports what we are all about — supporting the university with our giving. We hope you will come so we continue to grow the attendance and our gift to the university. We’ll have coffee waiting for you and boutiques loaded for your holiday shopping.
Speaking of growing numbers: we exceeded our membership goal for 2015-2016! Did you know that with our lifetime and annual memberships, we have over 1000 members! Thanks to all of you for bringing in your friends and for contributing your time and energy to make our chapter friendly, interesting and generous.
Look through this bulletin carefully. You will find new study groups, new art adventures, theater, lunches and a new tribute card. Read about Brandeis University’s new president. Get your husband or significant other to explore new possibilities with us. Put our Hanukkah party on your schedule. Play a game of cards. Join a committee. Come to the opening meeting. Send get-well wishes to a friend.
You can keep yourself really busy with us! Busy minds, busy hands, busy hearts. Join the fun!
