    What wonderful vibes I received on my first visit to the Kfar Shmaryahu Social Club and what a welcome they provided even though I had arrived unannounced to join in one of their regular Monday evening get-togethers.

    When they started around 15 years ago, the group members were in their teens - now they have become a close-knit unit of young adults who simply enjoy each other's company.
