Let’s gather in solidarity to remember and honor the people who have suffered or died because they were uninsured. For too many of us this is a life and death situation, and delays are not acceptable.

The Seniors Group at St. Anne’s will meet on Thursday, June 6, at 12 noon to carpool to go to Temple Emanual for a tour with Rabbi Mark. The tour will last about 45 minutes and then those who would like to join us for lunch will go to Cloverdale Kitchen, which is nearby. You don’t have to be “over 50” to join the seniors group (we do not check IDs) or to take the tour of Temple Emanual. If you do plan to attend, please RSVP to Judie Holcomb-Pack at firstname.lastname@example.org so she can let Rabbi Mark know how many people will be coming.

This is year 16th for the team, led again by Captain Stuart Winikoff. The team currently has 3 riders and welcomes more. Riders pay a registration fee and commit to a $300 fund raising minimum. Team Irene has already received $2,600 in team donations which will be split evenly between team members.

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America
We will be attending the school board meeting on Tuesday May 28th, 2019 at 6:30 pm. Please follow the link below to RSVP.
Despite our asking the school board to make school safety an agenda item, especially in light of recent activity in our schools, at this point it will not be on the agenda. However we will be able to speak during the public comments portion of the meeting. This will be toward the end of the meeting, so if you are unable to arrive at 6:30 please feel free to arrive later.
WE NEED YOU to stand up for the safety of our children. They need to hear from all of us that we are not happy with their lack of response to the free programs we have proposed and the school safety report from Everytown/NEA/AFT. We must also let them know that their response to recent gun activity in our schools was inadequate.
WE NEED YOU to increase awareness among board members of the community’s deep concern about school safety.
WE NEED YOU to speak to the board during this session. Misty Nichols and I have spoken on many occasions about these issues. We need more voices! Public comments may be heard during the “Meeting Open to the Public” item on the agenda. You may speak as a member of Moms Demand Action, or just as a concerned citizen or parent, but PLEASE consider saying something.
Thank you so much for joining with us to make and impact on our school system.
