Hi ya, gang!

Judy Aved’s house was the center of attraction when she had a really “terrif” party for all of her friends.  Dinner, dancing and oodles of fun were really “eaten” up by all. All the guys and gals say “thanks Judy” for a fine evening.

The T.Y.L played host to a Temple Youth Group from Los Angeles this past weekend.  A wonderful time was had by all who attended the program.  The T.Y.L. is planning many more entertaining affairs. Why don’t you plan to come and get in on the fun.

The Commissioner’s Ball of Hoover High School was an evening of real enjoyment. The affair was held at the Coronado Hotel. To start the evening with a bang Henrietta Faguet planned a terrific cocktail party for her friends.  “Nashing and shoosing” were Henrietta and Ronny Doctor, Roberta Wylogue ‘n Stan Breitbard, Harriet Silverman ‘n Art Pogrell, Susan Solof ‘n Roger Brenes, Diane Fogelman ‘n Alan Freidman, Janice Klaskin ‘n Sandy Ratner, Adrian Sachnoff ‘n Harry Ratner, Barbara Silverman ‘n Buddy Kader, Barbara Bogey ‘n Gary Cantor.

Scoop: Sherry Newman won many honors at the speech contest at State College .  She placed 2nd as best speaker of the day.

Susan Solof was recently elected Sophomore Song Leader at San Diego High.
