Tag Sale Success

From Marsha Stone: Thanks to our great team of workers who helped make this year's Tag Sale successful on May 17th and 19th.  We raised $1,018 and there may be more to come, as we have some higher end pieces to be appraised and sold.

This is a Temple fundraiser and a percentage will go to the Refugee Support Committee which will be contributed to agencies helping with legal fees for immigrants.

My gratitude goes to our terrific Refugee Support Committee:
Ellen Kaufman, Liz Kelner, Lenore Styler, Wendy Iseman, Robin Panagakos and Peggy Davis. 

Many thanks to Norm Hirschfeld (for his unending support), Phyllis Nahman, Marilyn Hartman, Rabbi Andrea, Sharon Weinberger, Marian Kelner, Ann Marie Meltzer, Mark Berson, Alice Thomas, Barbara Levy, Susan Hollins, Susan Breite, Susan Sprung and Kim Audette.  (If I omitted someone, please let me know.)

As always, thanks to Kate for her helpful office support.  Hope you all enjoyed working and shopping - it's always
a lot of fun and camaraderie!
