The 3 to 5 Creating Connections Committee...
Invites you to attend an upcoming Special Interest Group event. Not only will you have fun, but you are likely to make new friends as well! You can choose from hiking and reflecting, sharing great food, seeing and discussing a movie, drinking craft beer, or socializing with new friends (whether you have young children or are an empty nester). Please join us for any or all of these wonderful activities! For more information, please contact Denis Cohen, Creating Connections Group co-chair, or a group organizer listed below.
Contact: Linda Gordon
If your nest has been empty for many years, or if it is on the verge of becoming empty, please feel free to join us. Stay tuned for emails announcing our next event!

Craft Beer Group
It's a great way to try new beers and meet new people. Please contact Lauren Baldys for more information. Members and ECE families are all welcome.
Put on your aprons, bring out your ladles, and bring your favorite homemade soup (in a pot, enough for small tastings) to share among our Foodie friends.

PLOTS AVAILABLE IN THE MAIN LINE REFORM TEMPLE SECTION AT WEST LAUREL HILL CEMETERY
Cemetery plots are still available for resale to MLRT congregants in the MLRT section of West Laurel Hill Cemetery. The cost of a single grave is $4,500, which is the same as the cemetery charges the public if bought directly, and includes perpetual care. If you purchase through MLRT, $500 of your $4,500 purchase will go to MLRT as a charitable, tax-deductible donation. If you or your family members are interested in purchasing plots, either within the next year or at the time of actual need, please contact MLRT Executive Director, Missy Johnson, for more information or to arrange for selection and purchase.
