WRJ Gift Basket Raffle to Benefit the YES Fund

The WRJ Central District Convention is just a month away! We’re all excited about the installation of Lisa Singer and Sandy Adland–both of whom will be assuming positions of leadership within WRJ: Sandy will be installed as Central District president and Lisa will be installed as a new Area Director.

In conjunction with the dinner event on Saturday, November 8th, at the Embassy Suites Airport Hotel in Columbus, there will be a fun and lively Gift Basket Raffle to benefit WRJ’s YES Fund.

This year, our Sisterhood has chosen the theme: “Wild, Wonderful & Wacky Ohio.” We’re reaching out to all of the sistas in an effort to create a unique, creative and filled-to-the-brim basket of goodies!

Ideas include: chocolate/peanut butter buckeyes; a CD of the OSU marching band; Great Lakes Brewery favorites; and Cleveland Indians/ Cleveland Browns theme items and sports memorabilia. Use your imagination!

Those sistas planning to attend the Dinner Out event on October 21st, are encouraged to bring their basket item donations that evening.

All donations are tax-deductible.

Please contact Lisa Singer for additional information.

TBS Sisterhood Book ClubI was Jerry Lewis' Bodyguard for 10 Minutes

We’ve chosen a fun and unique book for review in early December. It’s called “I Was Jerry Lewis’ Bodyguard for 10 Minutes!” Local Akron resident and author, Irv Korman, highlights his encounters with various celebrities, including famed magician, Harry Blackstone, Mary Travers (from Peter, Paul & Mary) and Eddie Fisher, to name a few.

Irv Korman describes himself as a “writer, theatre critic, actor, clown and magician.” As an added bonus, Irv will be joining in the discussion that evening!

The Sisterhood Book Club will be meeting on Thursday, December 4th, at 7:00 p.m., at the McDonald’s located on Darrow Road–just south of Norton Road in Stow. (We will be gathering in their elegant and private dining area!)

(Please note that outside food and beverages are not permitted).
