Keeping Connected  June 2023

Hi friends,

I hope you are all enjoying the good weather and getting ready for a restful summer.  Please remember to save the date for Annual Meeting on June 13 at 6:30 PM.  It is so important for all members to have a say in the business of the congregation so I hope you will make time to attend.  Also, our Parking Lot Party on June 17 at 5:30 PM will be a fun time with good food and music so please be sure to RSVP.

Over the next few weeks, you will see some new boulders being installed around our temple.  We are finally implementing the security grant we received from the state earlier this year, for hardening of our building.  In several weeks, we will also have some nice granite blocks on the sidewalk in front of our door as well.  Security still remains top of mind for us.

This is my final newsletter article as President.  I just want to say that it has been a great honor and privilege to serve as President of Congregation Shalom these past 4 years.  I want to thank all of you, for your patience, your support, your understanding, and your guidance during some very difficult times.  I have seriously learned so much from all of you. Our congregation is a special place, a very real extended family, and I am grateful for having had the chance to give back to a community that has given me so much more.  I look forward to continuing my volunteer work at Congregation Shalom and finding other ways to contribute (but after a little break).

Please have a safe summer.

With warm regards,
