Singers, its not too late to come join the Chorale in song for our spring program. We are having new pieces introduced each week, and new singers are welcome to join this month, when it will be easy to catch up. We’d be delighted to have you add your voice to ours and help us make the rafters ring.

Book Chamber

amor-towles-gentleman-in-moscow-mr

Join us on June 19 (the 3rd Tuesday) to discuss A Gentleman from Moscow by Amor Towles. Our own Philip Miller not only keeps the Book Chamber informed of room changes or parking, but he also roundly recommends that we read this book. “Beautiful writing,” he encourages us, and so say the New York Times, Washington Post, NPR, New Yorker and reviewers from LA to London. Why? Not only engaging writing, but charm and insouciance radiate from this light story of Count Alexander Ilych Rostov, a “former person” who lives under house arrest in Moscow’s Metropol Hotel, an idyll that lingers on long after the Bolsheviks, Stalin and countless apparatchiks rampage through Russian history. The debonair Count finds his glass more than half full of Chateau du Pape as he glides through the decades of the 20th century with personages humble (the door man, florist, chef), glamorous (an actress with her pack of Borzois, Bolshoi ballerinas), and motley (juggler, one eyed-cat)… Enjoy!


knittingMonday Knitters

Calling all generous and talented Ebell members and friends who can knit or crochet, want to learn how, want to show their support or just want to schmooze!  We meet to make blankets, scarves, and hats for Helen’s Room which offers support and products to women cancer patients free of charge. As our circle of knitters and crocheters enlarges, our Helen’s Room survivors are surrounded by the love and support of many more women. Skeins of yarn are always needed.
The Social Service Department is always looking for woman power and ideas. If you know how we can further support the Rest Cottage Association charities, please contact Cynthia Comskycyncom@mac.com; Janna Bodek Harrisjannabodekharris@icloud.com
