Page 13-THE NEWS-December, 1988 The Foundation of the Charlotte Jewish Community Be a Volunteer at Shalom Park By Scott Snyder Program Director Evelyn Berger,Coordinator Volunteer Program As many of you know, Shalom Park has become an extremely busy complex. Seven days a week, 95 hours every week, the Park is used for many purposes. Did you know there are approx imately 20,000 uses each month? With that many uses, there are undoubtedly rough edges that.need smoothing out in order for the partners of Shalom Park to run efficiently and effectively. One way this can be accomplished is with an invaluable commodity called volunteers. Volunteerism has been a vital part in our community for many years. At Shalom Park, we offer the kinds of volunteer oppor tunities that are unusual and ex citing. Whatever your past experiences or expertise might be, Shalom Park has what you are looking for. Our age groups and programs at the Park range from infants to older adults. Our volunteer program at Shalom Park identifies, trains and matches volunteers with the many tasks that are needed in order to help all of the organiza tions of the Park. Volunteering provides an extra dimension of service to each organization. In the tremendous age group we cover you will find areas not on ly in secretarial or clerical assistance, but opportunities to work with youngsters, driving for older adult programs, work ing in our library, etc. This program is extremely valuable to the partners of Shalom Park, but more impor tantly, our volunteer program will help train and provide meaninghil work for those in dividuals who wish to volunteer and upgrade their vocational skills. If you enjoy being part of a people environment and/or want to make better use of your free time, give us a call. Volunteering at Shsilom Park can and will be very satisfying. For more information, please call Evelyn or Scott, 366-5007. Friendly Visitor Friendly visitor needed to visit elderly couple at local nur sing home on a regular basis.

Art on Display At Shalom Park Two recent acquisitions of artwork have been hung in the Jewish Community Center by the Visual Arts Committee of the Foundation.^ “Going to Services,” a lithograph by Felix Fabian, was a gift of Allan Berger in memory of his wife, Charlotte, and may be seen in the Chai Lounge. The piece is from a portfolio of drawings on Jew ish themes done in a spon taneous pen technique. A lyrical ink drawing of a woman by Rita Gambinski, now hanging in the Adult Lounge, was given by Rose and Abe Luski in honor of the 50th wedding anniversary of Dr s. Irene and Albert Kos- sove. An exhibition and sale of artwork by Florence Jaffa and Hermann Kosak, which opened Dec. 1, will remain in the Speizman Galleries through Jan. 15. A reception for the ar tists will be held from 2-4 p.m. on Dec. 4. Sponsored by the Visual Arts Committee of the Foun dation and the Jewish Com munity Center, this show is part of the continuing series “Shows of Local Artists.” — Lois Perschetz Shulimson Children Library Fund By Amalia Warshenbrot It was not until my first week working at the Morris and Sylvia Speizmsm Jewish Library, that the Becky Shulimson Memorial Children Library Fund got my atten tion. One of the library volunteers told me that she chose to help at the library because she had been a close friend of Becky. number of requests far ex ceeded the number of books available. It was very evident that more children’s holiday books are needed. Next year we will have them thanks to the thoughtful contributions of the members of HaLailah BBW. If anyone would like to purchase a book (give a cash donation) a special book plate will be placed in these books for the children’s section. This book hos been purchased from thoughtful coritributions to the Becky Shulimson Memorial Childrens Libror/ Fund A project of HoLclloh Chopfer D'nol D'rith Women When Penny Eisenberg, president of HaLaileih Chapter of B’nai B’rith Women, told me that this year the members had collected almost $700 for this ongoing project, school was into its second week and Rosh Hashanah was just around the corner. There was a tremendous de mand for high holiday books by teachers, children from the preschool, students of Temple Beth El V’Shalom and Temple Israel’s religious schools. The Now all the classes in the religious schools of the Temples, nursery school and Lubavitch school visit the libreiry for an age appropriate program and the children are encouraged to ch n:k out books. Due to the small number of books we can not schedule visits of more than one class of an age group a week. Our library will grow and children’s know ledge will grow through your contributions to the Becky Shulimson Memorial Children’s Library Fund. For more infor mation contact me at 366-5007.
