Reminisce and have fun at Happy Days Are Here Again Campaign event Oct. 6
by Shiela Steinman Wallace, Editor
Do you have memories of getting together with your friends for the United Jewish Appeal many years ago? Together you worked for the best interests of the community, raising dollars that raised hope for Jews in Louisville who needed help and uniting in support of Israel.
If you have memories to share from campaigns past that you’d like to share and you’re over 65, you’re invited to the 2014 Federation Campaign’s “Happy Days Are Here Again” event, on Sunday, October 6, at 10:30 a.m. at the Jewish Community Center. Jog people’s memories and increase the fun by bringing along old photos and other memorabilia.
The reminiscing will be fun, 2014 Campaign Chair Doug Gordon promises, and there will be plenty of time to swap stories about old Campaigns. There will be brunch, some local entertainment and a chance to see how much you remember about the good old days in a game of “Second Street Trivia.”
Of course, this is a Campaign event, so you’ll have the opportunity to make your 2014 Campaign pledge. “Why should it take us over 12 months to complete a campaign?” Gordon said. “The way I see it, you have made a consistent annual gift to the campaign, so let’s continue that tradition and celebrate our philanthropy together, enjoying the great feeling of tzedakah together, and doing it in a day instead of over 12 months. Make sense? Just say ‘YES’ and dare to break the cycle!”
It’s a great way to keep our community strong, support the State of Israel, help Jews in need around the world and have time left to schmooze and have a good time.
Be sure to let the Jewish Federation know you’re coming so there’s enough food for everyone. Transportation available upon advance request.RSVP to Mary Jean Timmel, 238-2739 or firstname.lastname@example.org by October 2.
