Division of the Jewish Welfare
Federation raised a whopping

Dennis Bernard, newly elected
president who will see the division

wants his group to build on the foun-
dation set by its predecessors. "We
want to spring forward to take advan-
tage of the opportunity of the seeds
that have been planted," Bernard
said. Among the plans he would like
to see instituted are joint projects
with young adult groups from other
organizations, developing community
awareness among the membership
and getting more people involved in
YAD activities.
