The Honorable Shelley Brindle, Mayor of Westfield, will be the featured speaker at the College Woman’s Club of Westfield’s annual spring luncheon on Wednesday, March 28, at noon at Echo Lake Country Club, 515 Springfield Avenue in Westfield.  The luncheon is $75 per person and all proceeds benefit the club’s scholarship program for young women from Westfield.  

A former HBO senior executive who was recently elected Westfield’s first female mayor, Mayor Brindle was herself a scholarship student at the University of Virginia. She credits her daughter for encouraging her to run and her mother, a Vietnam War widow, for instilling in her a spirit of resilience and willingness to embrace change.  

“Mayor Brindle’s story is inspirational for our multigenerational membership as well as the young women we support through CWC scholarships,” said Jeanne Marie Ryan, CWC President.  “We are excited to have the Mayor as a speaker for our annual luncheon as we conclude our centennial year and move into another century of helping young women in Westfield achieve their academic goals!”

Why We Keep Kosher

This week's parshah, Shemini, introduces the Torah's dietary laws. Animals must chew their cud and have split hooves to be kosher, fish need fins and scales, and a list of forbidden fowl is enumerated.
