The North Shore Junior Women’s Club is honored to present an evening focused on the horror and courage of two distinct moments of the past century. Three sisters present their account of retracing their grandmother Alice Simon’s tragic journey as one of the victims murdered by the Nazis. Debbie Konkol, Joanne Weinberg and Chris Halverson will also present their father’s lifelong response to the horror of the Holocaust which took him from a Church pulpit in Milwaukee to the Civil Rights Movement in Selma, Alabama in 1965.

Congrats to all on our successful fundraiser for Girls on the Run of Greater Milwaukee! After much effort, we all enjoyed a great evening while we raised $6700 for Girls on the Run. The event called Dance the Night Away included dancing, great food and drink, a cork pull, silent auction and more. Thanks to the many local individuals and businesses that contributed to our efforts and the money will be used by Girls on the Run to purchase equipment for girls who participate in the program.  The program is more than running; it provides girls with guidance on good health and making smart choices.

Girls on the Run of Milwaukee

Posted in Uncategorized by karenmathu on February 29, 2012

Yay!! Our club is excited to be raising money for Girls on the Run of Milwaukee. We are planning an event for Saturday night, March 31, 2012 called Dance the Night Away. The evening includes live music, dancing, great food and drink, a cork pull, silent auction and more. Tickets are $40 and are available through any of our members or email us nsjwc@yahoo.com.

Girls on the Run inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident. They combine an interactive curriculum and running to inspire self-respect and healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls. The curriculum addresses many aspects of girls’ development – their physical, emotional, mental and social well-being. Lessons provide girls with the tools to make positive decisions and to avoid risky adolescent behaviors.

The Milwaukee council has about 10 locations this Spring for young girls. Each location is run by a volunteer head coach and they meet twice a week for about 10-12 weeks. They focus on a series of lessons, and train to run a 5K race. Click here for more info about Girls on the Run of Milwaukee.

We hope you can join us on March 31, 2012. Click here for the invitation to Dance the Night Away.

 

60 pairs and counting….

Posted in Uncategorized by karenmathu on January 24, 2012

Our service collection tonight was socks!! Socks? Why socks?

The GFWC Sock Project helps domestic violence survivors “Step Away From Abuse” by working with domestic violence shelters. We collected over 60 pairs of new socks and will be placing them in clear bags with a personalized message of support and encouragement from our club. It reads: “As you begin your new life and Step Away from Abuse, we hope you will find comfort and warmth as you walk into your newly found freedom.”

The General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC) is a national leader in the fight to end domestic violence, and this is one small way our club — along with clubs throughout the U.S. — helps to support these efforts.

If you still want to donate socks, get them to Karen M. by this Thursday. If you want to join in the fun of packaging them, stop by her home Friday morning at 10 a.m.
