Aarons book buddies 2

COLLECTION FOR AARON’S BOOK BUDDIES from May 1-22
Susan Salomon, beloved Machane TBA teacher of 42 years, is retiring!  In honor of her retirement, we will be having a book drive to collect books for Aaron’s Book Buddies, which Susan founded in 2010 in memory of her son Aaron.   The program collects new and gently used elementary-school age children’s books to distribute to children in Title I schools in Montgomery County.  (No board books, please)

A collection bin will be in the temple vestibule from May 1 through the last day of Machane TBA, May 22.

Breakfast bar basic logo

THE TBA BREAKFAST BAR will be open from 9-12 every Sunday that Machane TBA is in session, with fresh brewed coffee, homemade muffins and pastries and bottled water!   Sit and schmooze at outdoor tables with other Machane TBA parents before drop-off (kids are welcome!), after drop-off, or before pickup!     Weather permitting.
