Growing up in the Northeast, spring was always my favorite season. It didn’t hurt that my birthday came in the spring, but I always loved to see the world around me turn green and colorful again after the cold drab winter. It also brought one of my favorite holidays. Passover was always special, with a gathering of my aunts and uncles and cousins and Oma. Of course that was before I had to deal with the cleaning and cooking!
I still love Passover and the special feeling that it brings with it. One of our special events here in Sun City Center is our Sisterhood Women’s Seder. This is a time for us to celebrate the uniqueness of us. Come and join us on Tuesday, April 2nd as we sing and dance and enjoy each other’s company. If you have not yet made your reservation please get it to me by Tuesday, March 26th with your payment of $7. This is a wonderful afternoon that you don’t want to miss. If you have questions give me a call at 938-3824.
I wish you all a memorable Passover wherever you will be celebrating it.
May we go from strength to strength.
