12 Southeastern Virginia Jewish News Volunteers, staff "knit one, purl two" at The Home Paula Miller of the Navy/Marine Corps Releif Society, Kathy Voger - Director of Human Resources at the Home A new project has been added recently to the activity list at The Berger-Goldrich Home at Beth Sholom Village. Every Friday a group of resi- dents - and some staff members - gather to knit and crochet. Paula Miller, of the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society, explains, "We give the residents a choice of making an afghan or a baby sweater set. We provide the yam and the instructions and the items are then given to families of our servicemen from Oceana Naval Air Station - many of whom have been deployed overseas. It is a great way for one 'community' to help another." In addition to the Friday group at The Home, volunteers from the B'rith Sholom Ladies Auxiliary knit and crochet items for the residents of The Home. Among the items recently donat- ed are lap blankets, afghans and foot warmers. Joyce Serxner, a volunteer at both Beth Sholom and B'rith Sholom, says, "This is what we do. It is our commit- Joyce Serxner - Volunteer ment to the Jewish community."
