Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018!
November was a busy month for Men’s Club with the Men’s Club/Sisterhood Casino Night celebrating our 50th anniversary as well as Erev Thanksgiving Bingo Night. It is always great when we can have so many community-wide events and our joint Sisterhood/Men’s Club programming is always a lot of fun.
Now looking ahead at the new year, I wanted to talk about something different this month. If you have had a life cycle event at Beth Shalom, you might have received a card from Men’s Club saying that a contribution was made to the Men’s Club Youth Scholarship Fund, but what exactly does that mean and what does it do? Our Men’s Club has always been a strong supporter of the youth at Beth Shalom – they are our future and Men’s Club supports USY and other youth activities in many ways. First, we sponsor the basketball team by paying for their registration, purchasing new uniforms, and allowing them to beat us every year at our annual Men’s Club USY Basketball Game. This year’s game is January 24th at Wood Oaks, and we are always looking for people to play on this team as well as our softball team. In addition, the money that is donated to the Men’s Club Youth Scholarship Fund is used to provide subsidies for USY LTI, International Convention, CHUSYFest, and the Kadima Konvention.
We are thrilled that this year the USY International Convention is in Chicago, so we are helping to give subsidies to all of the Congregation Beth Shalom USY members going to International Convention later this month. These funds are coming from the Men’s Club Youth Scholarship fund and will allow more students to participate in these events. We are proud to be able to continue to support USY and the community in 2018 and beyond.
