NCJW South Cook has many opportunities for volunteers! Here are highlights of some of our projects.
Traveling Players has kicked off its 2015-2016 season. Stars of the show include:
Joan Plusser as Hello Kitty
Linda Seracki as Aretha
Susie Goldberg is the troup’s announcer.
During this time of quarantine due to the coronavirus, our Community Service Projects are on hold. Hopefully in 2021 we will be able to return to these activities.
