Writer likes new look, supports Wish for our Heroes mission


The new formal name of the newspaper, “The Jewish Voice,” is very appropriate and consistent with the editor’s efforts to provide readers with diverse views.

I am sure I will still refer to the paper as “The Voice” and it will take a few more issues to get used to the new, fresh and contemporary look; however, the changes are to be applauded.

On another note, on behalf of Ledgemont Country Club, it was nice to see the coverage of our annual charity event that benefits Wish for our Heroes (“Golfing for a cause: Raising funds for military personnel nonprofit” in the Aug. 2 issue). It is a very meaningful event for the members of Ledgemont as well as for the military personnel who participate.
We had many active and retired soldiers participate, including two golfers who had returned from active service in Afghanistan only a few days before the outing.

The mission of Wish for our Heroes is “Granting Wishes One Hero At A Time” and provides assistance to the men and women in the active United State military.
