Men's Club : : President's Message

Monthly Message from Men's Clube President Marvin Mandel

Lots of Laughs to Start 2018

The Men’s Club is sad to report the passing of one of its longtime leaders, Jack Berger. Jack provided wisdom and enthusiasm and will be greatly missed. We offer our condolences to his family and friends.

Chris Epting, the biographer of Olympic gold medal winning swimmer Shirley Babashoff, returned to Temple Judea to speak at the December 6th Men’s Club breakfast. Chris eloquently described the three day camping trip between the naturalist John Muir and U.S. President Teddy Roosevelt. Legendary outdoorsman Roosevelt wanted to get away from Washington, DC and he enlisted Muir to be his tour guide on the President’s first trip to California. They spent all their time in the Yosemite Valley. Roosevelt was so impressed with Yosemite and John Muir that he created the National Park System.

I hope you like to laugh! The next Men’s Club breakfast January 3rd will feature the performances of leading comediennes from the Catskills in New York. This is Part 2 of the program we began last July. The last show drew a very large crowd and I laughed hysterically.

Men’s Club breakfasts begin at 10 AM in our social hall. They are a great way to mingle with your friends, meet new friends, and have a tasty meal of lox/cream cheese spread, bagel, eggs, Danish, coffee & tea – all this for $5. Remember Women are invited too. We encourage you to bring your friends.
