MEN'S CLUB REPORT
Stephen Levine, President
As our programming comes to a close for the season, although I might be considered a little prejudiced, I think we had a pretty good year. There were six informational meetings, an insurance meeting, a Tampa Bay Lightning meeting (and hopefully the next Stanley Cup Champions) presented by the man who was their General Manager when they last won the Stanley Cup, the Ameriprise Luncheon, a presentation on researching public records presented by the sole researcher on a team that won a Pulitzer Prize, an informational meeting on DUI, and a AAA Travel Meeting that will happen after this note has been printed.
We had four very successful Bagels and Discovery Meetings, all of which were complete sell-outs: Dr. MacManus, Rabbi Aiello, The Kern Singers, and Captain Kapusta.
We built the Sukkah; an amazing feat unto itself, coordinated and arranged for ushers for the High Holidays, assisted with set up and take down for the rummage sale, and along with Sisterhood covered the cost of additional needed Festival Prayer Books.
I might be redundant in recognizing the Men’s Club Board but I believe they do deserve a curtain call for all of their hard work. As the cliché goes, they walk the talk. Stephen Blesofsky, Bob Conti, Gil Daniels, Neil Raphael, Ralph Shaw, and David Unterlack.
We still are attempting to put one more activity together for the summer so stay tuned. The thought right now is for an afternoon Rays game but if you have other ideas or suggestions just let me know. Maybe a Bucs game next season; three of their home opponents are the Giants, the Cowboys, and da Bears.
Enjoy the summer and watch out, pretty soon we’ll be looking for volunteers to help usher and build the Sukkah again, 5776 is coming up fast.
