introducing

JUDITH KARON (picture, left).  When she arrived in Sun City a little more than a year ago, Judith Karon knew she was going to play bridge and probably explore volunteer opportunities. Having moved here from Northern Minnesota knowing only one person, she asked one of the women she met, Rita Ban (picture, right), how she kept herself busy. An invitation to a Brandeis’s New Member Event was just the ticket! It was quickly followed by attending our Showcase. As a retired University administrator she found programs that were both intellectually stimulating (Current Legal Issues) and personally satisfying (Family Dynamics). Through these groups and special events, she wound up making new friends and putting down roots. According to Judith, “after living in the same place for over 40 years, the BNC Desert Chapter gave me just what I needed to feel at home and part of a real community!”

Scenes from our Tea

Not a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, but instead a spectacular Brandeis  Traditional British High Tea held at the home of Judy Columbus on April 8.  Everything was perfect from the lavender table cloths to the wonderful center pieces created by Beverly Ross. The servers who were friends and members were perfectly attentive.  The array of goodies…what can we say?  A cup of fresh berries.  Scones with lemon curd and jam.  Different variety of tea sandwiches (special thanks to Maggie’s daughter Samantha and Marcia’s daughter Laurie for cutting up all that bread!).  Home made chocolates.  And tea…lots of tea. (You may click on each picture to enlarge.)  Visit Maggie’s thank you note to see more pictures.
