NEVER SIT ON THE SIDELINES, indeed ! Great, huge buckets of thank-you’s to all who contributed (listed below) to the Manhattan Women’s Club Bench in Central Park – the plaque arrived late Fall and we were able to “christen” it in January as part of our annual anniversary celebration. Especially loud shout-outs go to ANGELA JAMES, whose “Picture Yourself” Program gave us a head of steam mid-funding, to AIMEE BURKE who came up with a novel raffle idea for the wonderfully mad MahJong’ers, and to MOLLIE NEWMAN who organized a group contribution by the Manhattan Bookies Lunchtime Book Group and made fund raising for this a lot of fun. Quite a few people contributed multiple times. You’ll also see that among the contributors are former members, brand new members – and never members ! A wonderfully gratifying group effort. THANK YOU !
