Posted by sjwisch on June 14, 2011
Shalom, Chaverim! Jews’ Next Dor has kicked off its summer with our first pool party of the season – and I think we had 35 people in the hot tub at one point. Thank you to Amir C. for hosting us, and to all who attended.
There is a lot happening with Jews’ Next Dor this summer, and I hope everyone will join us for our amazing events and support our fabulous volunteers who have stepped up to plan adventures for us.
The first really big event: Tuesday, June 21 (a week from today), Jews’ Next Dor will be holding ELECTIONS for the next steering committee. The deadline has passed for people to submit their candidacy, but NOMINATIONS WILL BE TAKEN FROM THE FLOOR the night of the elections. So, if you want to run, or decide someone else should serve on the steering committee, please nominate them. However, people must be present at elections if they are nominating, or will be nominated. Please RSVP to the invite on Facebook, and the address will be released in a few days. Exercise your right to VOTE! http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/event.php?eid=168631843198649
The next BIG event is: the 2nd Annual Jews’ Next Dor Talent Show! Do you sing, act, play a musical instrument, write poetry or short stories, or dance? Then this is the place for you! We are also looking for artists to submit photos, paintings, jewelry and other pieces of art to exhibit and sell at the show. Not ready to perform or show your art? We also need people to help with baking, back stage preparations, and other duties. Please submit your act, your art or if you are willing to volunteer to JewsNextDor@beth-david.org by June 27 so there is enough time to prepare for the show. The Talent Show will be on Sunday, July 17 at Congregation Beth David in Saratoga at 2:30 pm. http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/event.php?eid=212452045461200.
