President's Message - April 2009 Print
Dear Members of CBI:


Spring has arrived in South Texas and I for one look forward to getting outdoors again. The warm weather entices us to go outside and take advantage of the, soon to be over, with pleasant days and cool nights. Getting away for Spring Break means the school year is nearing the end and plans are being made for summer vacations. Here at CBI we look forward to celebrating Passover and as we have for several years, once again CBI will be hosting dinner for the 2nd Night of Passover at the Temple. Information in the last bulletin including a reservation form was sent to everyone and I would urge each of you planning to attend to send your reservations in at this time. If you did not receive one, please call Debbie at the office to request another.
Our bulletin for the first time went out by email format to all who have provided the office with your email address. By doing so, it is anticipated CBI will save $2000-3000 in printing and mailing costs which greatly helps up meet our budget. If you have not entered the computer age or do not have email, please let us know and a hard copy will continue to be sent.
Your Board of Trustees recently approved the purchase of a defibrillator, which we now have on site. We will be setting up a class to be held by Dr.Gregg Silverman to train and teach all who are interested in how to use it in case of an emergency. I am also happy to announce we are currently in negotiations with Rabbi Roseman on the renewal of his contract which we anticipate will be finalized in the near future. Finally the Nominating Committee is working on the new slate of proposed Board members for 2009 -2010 which will be announced when approved by the Board.
Iris and I wish each and everyone of you a very Happy Passover!
Andy Lehrman
President
