Thank you to all those who helped make this year’s bake sale a success. We were able to clear over $5,000.
At our meeting on Sunday, we voted to support three charities with donations. We will be sending donations to Mobile Meals, The Soup Kitchen, and to Crystal for the dinners she provides on holidays to the homeless. The bake sale is our only fund raiser for the temple, and we are delighted that we earned these funds from our efforts.
Next year we will begin our baking at the temple in August and will do it on a Sunday and weekday so that some of our newer members can participate. We need to show others how the strudel and butterflies are done. As our congregation has aged, we have lost many of those who began this tradition. It is a fun way to get to know other members, in addition to the work.
You do not have to know how to bake, our experienced bakers will show you the steps and it also becomes a social event as we all work together on different parts of the baking.
As I am sure you know, the Temple needs to replace the roof. Sisterhood is able to donate $25,000.00 toward this major repair.
We will begin again providing for the oneg after services. Nancy Rosenberg will be contacting you for your help. We ask that two people help each of the three Friday’s a month that this is needed. This is not just a Sisterhood thing, but something the entire congregation should support.
The Sisterhood Room does not have an emergency exit. This has become very important for the safety of those using that room. We are going to find a contractor who can install a second way to exit the room in an emergency. It will be expensive, but everyone agreed it was necessary. Thanks to the hard work of current and previous Sisterhood members, we do have savings to use for this.
Again, thank you to all who helped this year, and previous years with our bake sale so that we can help with monies to support projects needed at our temple.
