A Farbrengen at Bais Shmuel Chabad in Crown Heights marked the auspicious day of Rosh Chodesh Kislev.
The guest speaker was Rabbi Chaim Tzvi Groner, Shliach in Melbourne, Australia, who told stories about Shlichus and inspired participants.
During the Farbrengen, Rabbi Groner took out a telegram from his pocket, and related that his father Rabbi Yitzchok Dovid Groner obm received it from the Rebbe in 1970, and said he has been carrying it with him ever since.
The Telegram was one that the Rebbe sent to Chassidim and Moisdos for Yom tov and auspicious days on the Chasidic calendar. Rabbi Groner explained that in the Likkutei Sichos there is a list of wording which the Rebbe would send for various occasions.
