    Most people knew the history of their items and had some idea what they were worth but some were quite surprised on hearing the valuation.

    I want to report on a very successful Garden Club meeting held July 14th at my home in Kochav Yair. My neice Dr. Mollie Sacks gave a fascinating lecture on Soil.  She described all types of soils, their contents, their ability to grow plants, trees and of course enrich our gardens.  Many questions were asked and answered and it was a delight to have an informational evening on a subject that is so important to every gardener.

    The choir and ethnic dance groups in our Hefzibah Music of Excellence Project were entertained, instead of doing the entertaining, during the end of year outing yesterday.  Joan, our ESRA coordinator, and Eva, the choral director, took the girls to a lovely movie "Toy Story 3" in Netanya. It was the perfect ending to a year where they have been learning that pulling together as a team and supporting each other is what makes things happen (which is the moral message behind the movie).
