The speaker at our March 25 meeting was Rabbi Rena
Blumenthal, formerly of Vassar College.
She provided a unique and inspired interpretation of the
upcoming Passover holiday.
It was enjoyed by all.
It was a Husband/wife event.
Our March meeting featured Robert Friedberg, President of Vassar Brothers Medical Center. Club members and many wives were treated to good food and schmooze as well as an informative presentation by Dr. Friedberg.
Mr. Friedberg spoke at length about working to ensure that VBMC succeeds both at providing our community with the very best medical care available anywhere and at doing it at the lowest cost possible.
He noted a recent case at the hospital where a new service, Interventional Wire Neurology, was used to remove a blood clot from a patient's brain after suffering a stroke. Within hours of the attack, the patient was doing email, her blood flow restored.
Pictures of a new building, providing nearly 300 beds in private rooms, were shown. Construction will begin soon, it is hoped. Dr. Friedberg pointed out that the current circular design is outdated and inefficient. Furthermore, no one wants a roommate!
It was a most interesting and informative presentation.

September 10, 2014, meeting which was held at the Milanese.
On October 1, 2014 the Club sailed on the
Hudson River. Here's Martin Hochhauser's
report on that successful and fun event:
The boat ride down the Hudson on a real
paddle-wheeler was smooth and
enjoyable! Many of the club members
schmoozed together, with wives also
enjoying the sights along the way. A
fabulous buffet was also served beginning
with hors d'oeuvres and followed by
delicious desserts and coffee.
