February, Month of Love

Ah, February…a month synonymous with LOVE! For some here in the south it’s a love of cooler temperatures and a chance to finally dust off the fireplace and actually use it. For some it’s a love of football and getting to watch the Super Bowl with friends and family. But of course it’s also the month that contains Valentine’s Day, a banner day for flower sales topped only by the holiday of Mother’s Day. I wonder how many engagement rings have been presented on bended knee as Cupid shoots his imaginary bow! Letting that special someone know that you love them and all the people you care about is important on Valentine’s Day and all year through. Time can be fleeting and every day is a gift with the meaningful people in our lives.
This year, February 13th to be exact, is our next wonderfully fun, totally delicious and extremely important synagogue fundraiser. Truth is, member dues essentially cover salaries. To maintain funds for the multitude of other synagogue operational costs, as well as secure a solid financial base for our future, the need for our rapidly approaching fundraiser to be successful cannot be minimized! Long story short, we need your support for the 2016 Valentine Bingo & Auction Fundraiser! It really is a fun evening with lots of prizes in a beautiful venue. So show your “love” and please call the office for tickets and additional tickets. We need to increase those sales in the short time remaining before the event! A sincere hearty thanks to those who have worked hard with planning, organizing and selling and to all who have bought tickets thus far. In a sense, we are ALL “on the committee” and share in the responsibility to ensure our synagogue’s long term viability.
Thank you and hugs, Theresa
