GRANBY ELEMENTARY WAS SO VERY HAPPY WITH EVERYTHING WE BROUGHT OVER. THE DONATIONS WILL HELP A LOT OF THE CHILDREN THERE.
This photo shows one of the 25 world’s most unusual sculptures (I, Larry Steckler, having just appointed myself as a sculpture expert, will present all 25 of these “unusual” creations – with both photos and a bit of history about each one. When I discovered them, thanks to an Internet search, I was simply fascinated and hope that you will be too. The one shown above, is a salmon sculpture that can be seen, live, in Portland Oregon.
There is no charge for this Daytimers event, although your voluntary contribution will be appreciated.
Please telephone or e-mail ahead a reservation so we can be sure to have enough goodies on hand.

Our morning minyan and Friday night minyan could use your help!
A number of our regulars are unable to attend due to illness, and some mornings we are not able to make 10 people. It's particularly important on Mondays and Thursdays when we read Torah, but there are people every day who need to say kaddish. We have also had a problem for the past couple of weeks making a minyan on Friday evenings. Please look at your schedule and pick one morning a week to come to our 7:30am minyan - it's only 30 - 60 minutes and you will be doing a mitzvah by allowing people the opportunity to say kaddish for a loved one. If you can't make the morning minyan, please come on a Friday evening at 5:30.
