We welcomed  Dr. Tim Savage as our guest, a dentist new in town and looking to be part of great team.  Our speaker was Nick Campestre from the Teaneck HS Forum.  Nick reviewed all the programs that the Forum offers and its ability to reach out to a wide range of young adults needs as they go from HS to the world.  His staff is amazingly well talented, one of which is Yvonne Witter who will be in charge of the long awaited Interact Club.  Yvonne is ready to move forward with this group and ensure its success, she has many plans in place and will be attending our luncheon next week.

 

Our Taste of Teaneck event generated a whooping $4500 plus dollars, a special thank you to all that participated in ensuring a great event.
