JCC senior art class amazes audience with their talent

  • Post Category:Featured

Every Thursday morning, a dedicated group of very creative seniors meets at the Aaron Family JCC art studio. Fifteen artists of varied levels comprise this energetic group. Many of the students are beginners, having little or no past experience with drawing or painting. As long as one is not afraid to try, one can accomplish a lot in this class. Local artist Veronique Jonas volunteers each week and helps keep students motivated by suggesting colors and techniques to improve their paintings. She always has friendly advice and artistic tips to enhance each painting. Each student works at his/her own pace.

JCC’s Bagel Run draws dozens

  • Post Category:Featured

The 23rd Annual Bagel Run was a tremendous success. Threatening rain on Saturday caused the event’s planners to worry, but come Sunday morning May 17, the skies parted and what a glorius day it was for our annual race. The day began with a large group of volunteers setting up water stations and marking off the course for runners. Other volunteers set up tables with all types of bagels and spreads for the runners and their cheering sections. Sonny Hacker came as he does each year to prepare the awards table ready for after the race. With all of this going on, great music was playing on the sound system as people registered, and stretched, preparing for the run. Bagel Run Chair Mark Kreditor made sure he kept everyone informed with important race announcements. Immediately following the fun run, the Bagel Run began. Professionally timed and managed by RunOn, there were 325 runners who participated in either the 5k or 10k runs.
