A Great Two Years!
It has truly been my honor and privilege to serve as your Men’s Club President. I would like to thank our Board, Executive Board and Past Presidents for all of your hard work, creativity, and dedication to the workings of our Men’s Club. Without all of you, the Men’s Club would not be the thriving and top notch Men’s Club that it is today. Together we have continued our ongoing successful programs and fundraisers such as Lox Box, Men’s Club Shabbat, Yellow Candle program, Texas Hold’Em tournament, Israel in Depth, Purim Carnival and World Wide Wrap, amongst other annual programs. We also reinstituted and reinvigorated our joint Men’s Club-Sisterhood social evening by bringing you the Murder Mystery Night and Night at the Improv. We had two years of fabulous opening dinner speakers and a wonderful Holocaust survivor speaking at our Yom Hashoah event last year. We had our first ever Steaks and Scotch in the Sukkah and, this past year morphed it into SukkOctoberFest. We had several breakfast speakers to go along with our Sunday breakfasts. We had several Daddies and Kiddies events and had a large amount of joint programming with Young Family Programming culminated by a spectacular end of school year Maccabiah Games
Once again, this is a testament to our members, Board, and Executive Board. None of this could have happened without all of you!
The CBS Men’s Club Golf Outing is coming up to be played on June 26th at Highland Park Country Club. We will encourage you to bring wives and/or teenage and older children to play. There will be prizes for long drive, closest-to-the-pin and to the best foursomes. We will continue our best ball format and encourage you all to attend. If you do not have a foursome, we can put one together for you.
Our Annual Combined Board meeting will immediately follow the Golf tournament at CBS where we thank our outgoing Executive Board and Board members and welcome new Board participants and install our new Executive Board. Please join us for a barbecue and fun evening where we will also have our usual auction of fantastic gift certificates from local restaurants, hotels, golf courses as well as sporting event tickets.
It has truly been a remarkably fulfilling past two years and we appreciate the congregation’s participation and the wonderful backing of our clergy and our professional staff. Special thanks to Rabbi Melman, Rabbi Averbach, and Cantor Stoehr for their spiritual and ritual support and involvement and Michael Garlin and the entire Professional and Administrative staff for their never-ending assistance with the workings of our club.
I look forward to seeing our Men’s Club's ongoing growth in the future and its continuation as the absolute greatest Men’s Club in the world!
