The Friendship Circle of Brooklyn held its annual mothers end of year event this week. A lavish salad bar in addition to a pottery painting activity provided the mothers with a relaxing and enjoyable time.
Parenting children is an emotionally and physically draining task. Parenting a child with special needs often brings additional strain. Though the children are a source of pride and joy, their mothers need to be full time advocates and constantly available to provide to their children’s large range of needs.
A highlight of the year at the Friendship Circle, is the mothers end of year event. A time when all the mothers come together to shmooze, enjoy, relax and recharge.
This year Parttery, led by Shaina Wolff, came and explained different techniques and skills that could be used when painting pottery. The ladies got a chance to each make a piece of their choice.
The women were then invited to a beautifully set table replete with candles and flowers and an extensive salad bar. Director of Friendship Circle, Mrs. Chani Majesky shared a few words, thanking the many gracious hearts that make up the Friendship Circle. She noted that “the Friendship Circle has grown into a vibrant community and this growth is due to the constant support and encouragement we receive from our families.”
Special mention was made of the Parent Advisory committee who has given many hours of their time to advise and further enhance the ongoing programs of the FC. Members include Mrs. Libby Chein, Tzirl Goldman, Penina Lipszyc and Kaila Schaffran.
The evening ended with a prize giveaway. Lucky winners received watches, designer handbags, makeup bag and a Keurig Brewer.
We would like to thank Mrs. Malkie and Rochie Smetana for their year round support to the mothers of the Friendship Circle.
Thank you to Mr. Greens, First Quality, Natural and Kosher Cheese for their assistance.
A big thank you to Mushki Tenenbaum for all her help with planning and executing a beautiful night.
