Discussion of Marriage, Family and Divorce Continues Life Cycle Series

The theme of our March 19 Life Cycles program at Jowonio School will be “Marriage, Family and Divorce.” Our January program featured Suzanne Williams, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity in Syracuse, who described recent developments of Habitat for Humanity and the impact on children and youth of Habitat’s program of providing affordable, stable and safe homes. Then Madeline Kujab and Fran Greenman spoke about Starfish International, a program that promotes personal development in high school students in The Gambia along with academic support and entrepreneurship training. Madeline is a graduate of Starfish International and a senior at Bishop Grimes High School, and Fran and her husband Joe Greenman traveled to the Gambia in February 2016 and spent time at Starfish International.

Book Club to Discuss ‘Red Notice’

Our Book Club will meet on Monday, February 27, from 7 to 9 pm, to discuss Red Notice: A True Story of High Finance, Murder, and One Man’s Fight for Justice, by Bill Browder. Although this sounds rather esoteric, it is a fascinating read,  a real page-turner about current events. Please feel free to join us, even if you have never been to our book club before. For information about location, call Jennifer Roberts Crittenden, 315-633-2817.

‘Love Is the Answer’ Is Theme of 2017 Interfaith Assembly

The University United Methodist Church hosted our 7th Interfaith Harmony Assembly Feb. 6 on the theme “Love Is the Answer.” Each participating faith community shared insights from their tradition about a question to which love is the answer.

Anniversary Gala Marks Milestones

We celebrated our 15th Anniversary with a gala international buffet dinner at Temple Concord in Syracuse on Nov. 6, 2016. Our keynote speaker was Ruth Colvin, founder of ProLiteracy Worldwide, who played a key role in launching WTB, urging early members to formulate by-laws, obtain a non-profit designation, and set in place a leadership structure to ensure continuity. WTB president Betty Lamb gave an overview of the milestones of the past decade and a half and introduced women who have played key roles in our development. The evening closed with a call to action by Helen Hudson, a member of the Syracuse Common Council, and closing blessing sung by Kari Siegel, cantor at Temple Concord.
