The new officers were installed at a recent National Council of Jewish Women Luncheon on May 9th. Over 60 guests enjoyed the beautiful view at IMG Academy in Bradenton as they were introduced to the new Board members. Thanks go to Carole Shaw and Roz Hopp for arranging this lovely event so officers could share their exciting ideas for the coming year.
