It is hard to believe that a year has gone by since Danny and I moved to California, and you welcomed us into the community. What a year it has been! Thank you for being patient with me as I have tried to learn your names (I still have work to do), to learn the culture of Beth David, and to settle into life in Silicon Valley.
For me, summer is a time to reflect on the year that has passed, to catch my breath, to clear my head, and to plan for the year ahead. I would like to invite you to join me in the reflecting and planning process. I am eager to hear your thoughts on the year that has passed as well as what you might like to see happen in the future.
To that end, please join me on Friday, July 12, 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. at Peet’s (12148 Saratoga Sunnyvale Road in Saratoga) for some coffee talk. The first cup is on me.
If wine o’clock is more your thing, please join me on Tuesday, August 13, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. at Enoteca La Storia (416 North Santa Cruz Avenue, Los Gatos). The first few bottles are on me.
I hope you will come share your thoughts over a beverage, as we plan for the next year at Beth David and well into the future.
