On Friday, May 6th, we held our annual spring luncheon at the Merion Cricket Club in Haverford. This year marked our 10th Anniversary and our special program brought together members, patrons and guests from the Delaware Valley. We enjoyed an afternoon of networking, camaraderie and a renowned guest speaker, Mr. Sam Katz. The Luncheon was supported by members through sponsorship; we thank our Gold Sponsors: Brandywine Senior Living, Mainline Medical Supplies, and Rosemont Presbyterian and our Silver Sponsors: Abramson Center for Jewish Life, Waverly Care Associates and Mercy Home Health with Mercy Life; all of the above organizations support a rich tradition of service, advocacy and support for seniors, the disabled and their families.
Our Keynote Speaker, Philadelphia’s native son, Mr. Sam Katz, shared his journey from civic leader, venture capitalist and historian to filmmaker, founding History Making Productions in 2008. Mr. Katz discussed the vision for his most recent accomplishments, “The Great Experiment” and “Urban Trinity,” both, Emmy Award producing documentary films. He is a natural story teller with a great sense of humor and graciously spent time with our members and guests, answering questions, signing autographs and posing for pictures. Our thanks again to Sam, for his time and generosity.
As we look to the upcoming year, plans are underway, working on programs that are unique, timely and provocative. Please look to our Website for upcoming programs and events; we look forward to your participation at our monthly meetings.
As a Board, we truly thank our membership for their on-going support and for another successful year; we are truly grateful to the remarkable group of members whose collective actions deserve our deepest thanks and appreciation.
Paula Goy-Severino, President of the Professional Care Alliance of the Delaware Valley
