“Browsing Through Birke’s” screens at Congregation Beth Israel in Andover, MA
On March 24, 2012, “Browsing Through Birke’s” screened at Congregation Beth Israel in Andover, MA, and included a post-film Q&A with Szifra Birke. Many of the people who attended had memories of the Lowell store and their shopping experience there, which they agreed was unlike any other. Among the attendees were Carol Courtessi Marchand, Marsha Driscoll McGee, Ann Kinneen Desrosiers, Elaine Quigley Sheehan (alias “Dungaree Doll”), and Barbara Albert Sturtevant, who all exclaimed:
“We loved Szifra’s presentation! As graduates of the ‘Birke’s School of Shopping,’ we always felt so fashionable because our clothes came from New York!”
A remarkable time was had by all — a special thanks to everyone who attended and shared so many of their memories!
