David Mulford charmed and informed us once again today. His wonderful talks about the presidents are the highlight of the winter and the early harbinger of spring. And spring means the April Benefit! This year’s benefit is on Monday, April 22nd at the Present Day Club from 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Once again I want to remind one and all that this is our only fundraiser and very, very important to our effort to acknowledge the outstanding young women graduating from Princeton High School, Hun School, Princeton Day School, and Stuart Country Day. We are NOT raising the price of the benefit ($55) from last year, despite the fact that our costs will be higher because Present Day Club no longer does the catering.
The sign-up for our benefit is attached. Please come, bring friends, bid on our Silent Auction, make a contribution. By popular demand, the White Elephant sale is back, with Mary Ellen Parry, Janet Young, and Doris Tazelaar in charge. Bonnie Larson will be the cashier…what more could you want! We need all your help and effort this year, seriously. This is what we are about and we need you. Please let the committee know if you would work on the Silent Auction by soliciting a favorite restaurant or venue for a gift card, make a theme basket of goodies, or plunk down a lot of cash as a contribution! The committee members are Carol Stawski, Gay Culin, Lorraine Haucke, Nora Ananos, Connie Loukatos, Mary Frances Stahler, Elia Mackenzie, and Marlene Gordon.

INNOVATIONS IN EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION
Thomas J. Espenshade, Professor of Sociology, Emeritus at Princeton University, will speak about the New Jersey Families Study, “How do families build skills in their pre-school children and help them get ready to learn?” With the use of an “innovative video ethnography” in homes, the study is able to witness interactions between parents and children and collect valuable data particularly linked to cognitive and social-emotional development.
Dr. Espenshade graduated from the College of Wooster and received a Master’s degree from Yale University. He completed his Doctorate at Princeton University. Following professorships at Bowdoin College, Florida State University, and Brown University, as well as the Urban Institute, he returned to Princeton University in 1991. During his tenure there, he served as Chair of the Department of Sociology. Currently, he is a Senior Scholar with the Rank of Professor at the Office of Population Research, Princeton University.
Guests are always welcome.
The Board will meet on Tuesday, March 5, 2019 at Windrows. Meeting begins at 10:00 a.m. sharp, so plan on an early arrival. (Helps with parking, too.)
ANNUAL BRIDGE BENEFIT/GAMES LUNCHEON
WE SHALL NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE THIS A SUCCESS
WHITE ELEPHANT SALE: Gently-used items for which you have no use but which someone else will have fun buying as a “treasure” for a small amount (think yard sale). Call Janet Young, Doris Tazelaar, or Mary Ellen Parry to arrange pick-up, or to take to the March general meeting.
SILENT AUCTION: With one or two other members, put together a basket with a theme, list what is inside, and the value of your offering.
Another Idea: Ask for a gift certificate at your favorite store, beauty parlor, or tradesman. Any member of the committee can supply you with a copy of our tax-exempt paper.
When you have a donation to offer, please call or email Carol Stawski and let her know what it is: the donor or theme, and the amount of the donation, so that a card can be made on which the members can write their bids.
YOU WILL FIND A RESERVATION FORM ON THE LAST PAGE OF THIS NEWSLETTER TO COMPLETE, TO LET US KNOW YOU WILL BE THERE.
