We need your help Sunday June 2
A group of us plan to clean up the Temple parking lot and re-stripe the parking spaces. We would prefer to have the whole lot professionally resurfaced but right now it is cost-prohibitive. So in the alternative, some home-grown remedial work is planned for this coming weekend.
So if you have a broom and aren't afraid to use it, please bring it to the Temple on Sunday starting at 9am. After clearing away the sand and gravel we will re-paint the parking stalls.
Blowers and shop vacs may also be an option. Please bring what you can but most of all come down and give us a hand!
There will be a regularly scheduled Congregational Meeting on Wednesday, April 24 at 8:00PM in the Youth Lounge.
Regular business of the congregation will be discussed, and Cantor Rosenfeld's new contract will be called to a vote.
