We are very happy this year to call ourselves Chai Hadassah of Poinciana. We gladly join our "Poinciana family of organizations" because Poinciana is our home.

Hadassah is a community of strong women who have joined together to do much more than each would do by themselves. We share friendship and commitment to reach our goals. Our programs are on Thursday, our meeting day. We have card parties, a fabulous annual fashion show, a moving women's Seder, and more. We try to bring you some learning in a very enjoyable way.

We keep no money from these programs. Everything we make goes to Regional and from there to National and from there to Israel Hadassah Hospital. We have paid off the Mother and Child Pavilion at Hadassah Hospital, but there are so many more ongoing projects. The world knows that Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem is known for their medical research on ALS, Alzheimer's, stem cell therapy, and many more things.

We hope you will join us in our endeavors. If you'd like to be a little more active (though not too time consuming), please call Marilyn at (561) 433-5426. I will find a spot just for you. We want to hear your ideas to help us grow.

Don't forget Ros; she has beautiful cards, trees and certificates for sale for your special occasions. Her number is (561) 966-3192.
