President, Sonia Burgo Crannage, attended the Annual Benefit Brunch at the Crowne Plaza, Suffern, New York, on Sunday, October 21, 2012.  The Rotary Club of North Rockland made a contribution to the museum by taking out a journal ad to congratulate the honorees.  It was a wonderful event with a great educational program about the museum's work.  A program like this has many corporate sponsors,  but what makes the event a great success is the community itself coming out in support of this great organization.  Attending the event was one of our own rotarian member, Doreen Makara, representing M&T Bank who was one of the corporate sponsors.  During the program we had an opportunity to view and hear some of the testimonials of the survivors of the holocaust.  The stories were rivoting and overwhelming and we were all filled with great emotions.  The testimonials of the survivors is a major project of the museum and we had a first-hand opportunity to preview this historical undertaking.  It was an honor to have had the opportunity to attend this program on behalf of our club.
