HELLO EVERYONE FROM SUNNY ARIZONA!

By Nettie Nabedrick

Chair, 2017 BOND Book Author Event

I would like you to save the dates Tuesday and Wednesday, August 22 and 23 for our Annual Book Author Events.  We will be celebrating our 10th Anniversary as BOND and want our event to reflect all the hard work as BOND.  We want this anniversary event to establish ourselves as a vital part of the community!

With your help we can exceed our expectations with a larger than ever turnout.  Please mark the date on your calendar now and plan to attend with your spouse, friends or relatives.  We welcome everyone to an event that will focus on outstanding authors and a lovely dinner and luncheon.

We will be at Beth El synagogue on Tuesday evening and Oak Ridge Community Club Wednesday.  Our committee is already working hard to make this a very special year and, of course, as our major fundraiser we will be providing even more scholarships to deserving individuals in the Twin Cities.

Please contact me at 612-251-1505 anytime if you want to help out for the event or have questions.  Stay warm!

WE THOUGHT WE KNEW ....

WE THOUGHT WE KNEW……

By Sheila Goldstein, Philanthropy and Community Service

After checking out the principles of the Sojourn Program presented to us, it was decided that this was a project worthy of BOND’s support under our Community Service Mission. There were no BOND expenses, only the fee for lunch and whatever individuals decided to donate as a shower gift.

Susanna Lodge agreed to chair the project as our representative along with the Women’s Leagues of Beth El and Adath Jeshurun. After several planning meetings the day for the shower occurred on Tuesday, April 27.

The lunch was delicious and the camaraderie was wonderful. However, the highlight of the afternoon was the presentation by Laura Sisterman, along with the director of the project, Helen Chargo.

WHO KNEW…

..That the Sojourner Project Center is located in Minnetonka

..That the people were afforded so many options and resources

.. That there were no age or gender limits, so men and seniors were included

..That this non-profit is available 24/7

..That their crisis line had 2900 calls in one year

..That they have a partnership with 16 communities, police and social workers.

AND MOST OF ALL..

…THANK YOU TO SUSANNA LODGE FOR HER SUPERB LEADERSHIP AND TO OUR COMMITTEE AND ATTENDEES WHO  HAVE MADE THIS EVENT A HUGE SUCCESS
