Board members were thrilled to welcome about a dozen women to Lynn Goldfarb’s home for coffee and conversation Sunday, February 26. Young mothers, retirees new to Maine, and working women all expressed an interest in our organization and its mission. Several had attended our post-election Equal Justice Forum. Others had been recruited by active members talking up NCJW among their friends. While munching on cakes and cookies, and sipping tea and coffee, board members spoke about the history of our section and the advocacy, community service, and educational projects that we are working on now. And then they listened while the attendees talked about the issues that interest them. Many mentioned their hopes for making new friends among like-minded Jewish women in the area. Two women signed up for membership right then and there, while the others left with dues envelopes in hand. We are looking forward to seeing fresh faces at upcoming meetings and events.
