Our Sisterhood meeting for Tuesday, May 5th might have to be postponed. Please watch your email for updates.
May 5th at 11:00 am is the Installation of new members of our Board. This will take place at the Sisterhood Brunch. Freyda Cohen is the Chair. It is important to make a reservation in order for us to plan refreshments. Watch for the flyer. There is no charge for the event.
If you know of anyone in Sisterhood who needs help, please let me know. I encourage everyone to stay safe! Take the time during our “stay at home” to read, organize drawers, and call our family and friends. We will get through this!
