Sisterhood sets Good Cheer Club for the Blind Dinner; offers afghan raffle

By Patty Lewis

Sisterhood’s meeting in May was our last until September. But that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy! We’ll be playing host for our annual Good Cheer Club for the Blind Dinner at noon Wednesday, July 11.

Our May meeting featured a carry-in luncheon. We had a good turnout and great food. It is always fun to sample the different dishes our members bring.

We enjoy guests at our luncheons as well. This month, Jane Weiner’s husband Don was our guest. We were happy to welcome the Weiners back to Terre Haute for the summer.

We’ve lost Estelle and John Corrigan, but celebrate Robert and Izaak

By Patty Lewis

I am so sorry we have lost a beautiful woman and our friend, Estelle Corrigan, this past month.

When I think of Estelle and John as a young couple, I think of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. When I think of them now, I think of them dancing in a ballroom holding each other and gazing at each other with so much love. They both will be missed as part of our congregation.

Bruce Black conducted Shabbat services on February 2, the Friday after Purim. I have heard the Purim story read many times but not the way Bruce told the story. I could envision every character as if watching a movie.

I received a card, which was a surprise, from Student Rabbi Kylynn Perdue-Bronson, thanking me for inviting her to the shower, but it was our pleasure to have her.
