Never before has so much delight and enthu.s- lasm greeted • the announcement of fund-raising, as the Information that this year, for their 12th annual project, the B'nai B'rith Women will Join for the first time with the menis lodge, to present the MID-CENT¬ URY REVUE, featuring the full-length version of a show which has taken the country by storm—the Bor.schtcapades, Already, more than 130 workers are bus.v, t'on- tactlng the communily for pledges lo this project, and the s[)ontaneous response of everyone has been grati¬ fying and inspiring.
