TBS Participates in the Walk Against Hunger - Keeping Diane’s Dream Alive
On Sunday, May 5th members of TBS met at East Rock Park, College Woods Pavilion to participate in the annual Walk Against Hunger to support the CT Food Bank. This has been an annual event for our temple, but what was different this year is that the event was to honor Diane Kaplan who passed away last May. This was one of her favorite social action events for the temple, and this year we dedicated the walk in her honor.
Twenty three temple members and friends participated in the 3 mile walk wearing tee shirts with the logo, “Keeping Diane’s Dream Alive “– Temple Beth Sholom. The shirt won as the best of the event with a trophy given to our TBS group. Diane would have been proud as we always talked of having some kind of shirt to unify our group. Thank you to all who walked that day or donated to the walk. Special thanks to Robyn and Gary Drucker who helped coordinate the group on walk day. Our temple collected $653.00, well above our $500.00 goal. Next year we will all be there again, keeping the dream alive. Please join us.
