Kinneret Council on Aging adds to its board of directors
August 17, 2018
Kinneret I (KI), Kinneret II (KII) and Kinneret Council on Aging (KCOA) recently held its annual meeting and also inducted a new board member. The annual board meeting was held on May 9, 2018 at Kinneret Apartments, 515 South Delaney Avenue, Orlando, Florida.
The annual board of directors meeting included the approval of the budget for the 2018-2019 fiscal year and board member elections.
Nominated and approved to join the KI, KII and KCOA Board of Director's was Joanne Kane, a long-standing resident of the area and former assistant executive director of the Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando. Kane has been active throughout the community including at Ohev Shalom, Super Sunday and Jewish Family Services. Kane came to know Kinneret through her position at the Federation and after an 8-year hiatus from engagement, was looking to get involved where she could be part of a legacy that continues to bring services and programs to seniors in Central Florida.
"I wanted to make an impact on the overall community, get my hands dirty and make a difference," Kane stated. Her interest was peaked when she understood the hands-on dynamics of the KI, KII and KCOA boards and its reach into the community, beyond just the Jewish community.
"We are excited to have Joanne join the KI, KII and KCOA boards," stated Rhonda Pearlman, KI/KII president. "She is a pillar in our community and brings her knowledge and forward thinking to our boards," said Carol Feuerman, KCOA president.
Kane is married to Stephen Kane and has two daughters, Erika and Aly. She is also an avid cyclist, having enjoyed many rigorous bike trips around the globe.
