On Wednesday morning, June 9, NCJW/Essex held its annual Installation and Awards Brunch at Mountain Ridge Country Club. The outgoing 2020-2021 Section Board and Executive Committee was thanked for their service, and Nominations Chair Jill Sorkin Johnson welcomed and installed the new 2021-2022 Board and Officers.
The morning also honored three NCJW/Essex members for their extraordinary contributions to the organization:
- Sheri Trugman – Service to Section Award
- Patty Kremen – Hannah G. Solomon Award
- Laurie Schuftan – Henrietta Weiser Emerging Leader Award
As last year’s Installation was virtual, this year’s Installation was an opportunity for current president Penina Barr to receive the ceremonial gavel, and to recognize Lesley Greenstein, our immediate past president.
The morning also celebrated three longtime staff members on their retirements: DIane Apter, Gail Sample, and Barbara Sunberg.
Thank you to Event Chairs Lesley Greenstein and Nancy Eskow, and to Ad Journal Chair Deborah Legow Schatz.
