DON'T FEEL LEFT OUT ! I was told recently about a
woman who had felt totally out of place attending one of the
Singles Club gatherings. It was her first visit, according to
the report, and she felt that she was totally ignored (except
by the lovely lady sharing the story with me). Apparently, the
people there were all mingling, but she wasn’t
Well, I felt badly about her (perhaps true)
perception and I apologize on behalf of all of us who can
easily get caught up so busily chatting with friends and
acquaintances that we may not notice someone new. So, to our
readers who may suddenly decide to visit for the first time a
group, a dance, or an open-home party, I’d like to offer these
-- Although many of the clubs have
memberships, not everyone goes to everything and there are so
many activities, so sometimes it’s difficult to recognize when
a person you wind up talking to is a newcomer or not. On the
other hand, oftentimes there are name tags indicating whether
one is a member or a guest.
-- What may look like a
clique could actually be the re-acquainting of people who have
been out of touch. Many times the gatherings bring folks
together who only see one another at these events.
If you are new coming to any of these activities and feel shy
or uncomfortable, when you register or sign in be sure to let
that person know you are new on the scene and would like to be
introduced to a couple of people. Then try to introduce
yourself to three more people (force yourself!). We all had to
do it at one time or another.
-- Look around for the
most out-going people at the event. Chances are, if you
introduce yourself to them as a first-time visitor, they will
take you around to meet others there.
-- Don’t wait to
be noticed. Sometimes it is hard to know who is new. Then
again, you may not be the only new person there.
Come with a friend. Sometimes it is easier to mingle when you
have a buddy with you.
-- Call ahead of time if a
phone number is listed in the announcement. Tell the person
who answers you are a "newbie" and would like someone to watch
out for you.
-- Or, you could e-mail me and, if I plan
to attend the event, I will meet you there and introduce you
around. If I don’t plan on attending, I will be glad to
connect you up with someone who will be there.
Sometimes, we get so caught up in our own feelings
that we think of the worst possible scenarios. Socialization
is easier for some than for others, but I have found that
these events, on the whole, are welcoming and friendly. So, if
you are out there and had a bad experience, try again by using

There’s NO good reason to shoot mourning doves:

- Doves are NOT overpopulated.
- Doves are shot for target practice, NOT for food.
- Doves are NOT harmful to humans, property or crops.
- There are already 40 game bird species in Michigan and
there’s NO reason to add doves.
- It has been Michigan’s tradition to protect mourning
doves since 1905, and there’s NO reason to change that now.

YOM KIPPUR:OriginsBy: Amy J. Kramer
the Sabbath of Sabbaths, is observed the tenth day of the
Hebrew month of Tishri, September or early October in the
The first Yom Kippur took place
after Moses returned from his second trip to Mt. Sinai with
the replacement set of tablets containing the Ten
Commandments. He had broken the original set when he returned
the first time to discover the children of Israel worshipping
a golden calf rather than G-d, who brought them out from
Moses successfully pleaded with G-d on their
behalf, and on the first of Elul, he ascended the mountain,
this time for a second set of tablets. In Moses' absence, the
nation fasted from sunrise to sunset. Moses descended the
mountain on the tenth of Tishri. Upon returning, Moses found
the nation truly repentant and announced that G-d had forgiven
them. He decreed that the tenth of Tishri would remain a day
of atonement for all generations.
And this shall be an
eternal law for you. Each year on the tenth day of the seventh
month you must fast and do no work. This is true of the native
born and of the proselyte who comes to join you. This is
because on this day you shall have all your sins atoned, so
that you will be cleansed. Before G-d you will be cleansed of
your sins. It is a Sabbath of Sabbaths to you, and a day upon
which you must fast. This is a law for all time. (Leviticus
