From Our President

Thanks to those who have contacted Mark Holland, or myself to volunteer for this year’s Brewers Concession Stand. Training has already begun, so please make sure we know when you are attending, so we can get you on the list. If you would like to volunteer, there is still time to sign up, whether it’s for one game, all 13 games, or somewhere in the middle. This year’s slate of events also includes the Kenny Chesney concert. If you are a country music fan, come out and help us work the stand, while listening to this great concert for free…from the stand. Also, we have been told that there has been an amendment to the working age. Now those 16 and older can work the concession stands, as long as they are accompanied by their parent/guardian. What a great way to give back, by volunteering, so grab your kid (I know I will) and let’s raise some money.

The Brotherhood will be leading an outing to the Milwaukee Jewish Museum, on Sunday March 25. We will be attending their exhibit, “Allied in the Fight: Jews, Blacks and the Struggle for Civil Rights”. Allied in the Fight explores the partnership between Jewish and African American leaders in confronting systematic racism in the United States. The exhibit addresses Black-Jewish collaboration within the Civil Rights Movement and the complicated nature of Jewish contributions to the Civil Rights movement through artifacts, archival materials and information from a national perspective. I am sure this will be a very powerful exhibit and one that will be attended by many people. Please make sure you watch Emanu-el Email for information on reserving your tickets to join the Brotherhood at this outing.

As always, we look forward to seeing you at our monthly Brotherhood meeting, the first Thursday of the month at 6 pm, for dinner and good discussion. Remember, this is open to all members of the Brotherhood, or those who are interested in learning more about the Brotherhood.

Garrett Butenhoff
