TACOS AND MARGARITA BAR AT ANNUAL MEETING -- OLE!
Sun., Jan. 26 at 5:00 p.m.
 
Mark your calendars now for our Annual Meeting, Sunday January 26, 5:00 p.m., which promises stimulating food for thought and deliciosa food (and drinks) for the body.
 
5:00:  Sign-ups for the year.*  We all know that it takes the participation of every single member for Kohelet to thrive.  Whether you're setting up for our weekly Kiddush lunch, delivering a D'var Torah, helping organize one of our many holidays, or volunteering your house maintenance expertise, be sure to contribute and sign up for Shabbat set-up and the committee(s) that speak to you.  Spread your wings and try something new this year!  It's sure to be a rewarding experience.   Nuestra casa es tu casa -- our Beit Kohelet is your Beit Kohelet.....and we all say  gracias!
 
5:00 - 6:00.  Enjoy our fun, festive and delicious Tacos and Margarita Bar, provided by the board.  Enjoy the company of your Kohelet  familia (especially once they've had a mouth-watering Margarita!) as you partake in this spectacular spread.
 
6:00 - 7:30.  In addition to conducting the necessary business of the year, we'll host a discussion of members' visions and expectations for the year.  We are soliciting 4-5 members to briefly address the congregation about their thoughts about Kohelet in 2020, their ideas and hopes for the coming year, and/or their comments about the previous year.  Please contact Dan Savin (daniel.savin@ucdenver.edu) or Misty (misty917@comcast.net) if you'd like to speak.  
 
We hope that all will attend and participate, as full participation is what drives the health of the congregation.   Viva el futuro de Kohelet!
 
-The Kohelet Board
*ANNUAL MEETING SIGNUPS

Your very presence at the Annual Meeting on January 26 is an important statement.  Please do your best to be there. Kohelet is a volunteer organization.  This may be both our greatest strength and greatest weakness.  We can do things as we wish, but we don't have a staff to do the day-to-day tasks for us.  We have to do them ourselves.  We are asking everyone to please make a commitment to volunteer for a committee (or two), to sign up for set-up/clean-up, and to come to services.  Every job is significant.  No job is too small.  Kohelet works because of people like you.  We are special and unique.  Please help keep us this way.  Please volunteer. 

Your Kohelet Presidents,
Dan Savin and  Misty Davidson
