Upcoming Sisterhood Events

We had a wonderful Sisterhood Year End Dinner Party on Thursday, June 27th. Thank you to Caren Linden for hosting.

Our Spring Mah Jongg Tournament was on Monday, June 3.

Thank you to Iris Freeman, Robbin Alpert and Shelley Arenson – under their expert direction the Sisterhood held another successful Mah Jongg Tournament! Thank you also to all of the Sisterhood volunteers who helped with the food prep & serving, gave donations and helped with the creation of the beautiful baskets for the raffle. A fun day was had by all!
