If April showers bring May flowers, what brings Jeff Lawson, WVEC Channel 13’s chief meteorologist, to Beth Sholom Village? The Annual Spring Luncheon presented by the Beth Sholom Auxiliary. Lawson will discuss “What’s Up with the Weather?” and will touch on topics ranging from global warming to hurricanes to why some winters are warmer than others.

Lawson has been with WVEC since 1990. His first job was with Accuweather and he was also with WeatherCenter. Lawson says, “I was lucky enough to have studied with Dr. Vern Drozek who developed the Drozek Scale which measures hurricane intensity from satellite imagery.” The American Meteorological Society lists Lawson as a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist.

The Auxiliary will hold its luncheon at The Berger-Goldrich Home, 6401 Auburn Drive in Virginia Beach.

Co-chairs for the luncheon are Roz Landres and Joyce Salzberg. Couvert is $20. Checks made out to the Auxiliary, should be mailed to Dee Dee Chovitz at 2424 Ocean Shore Crescent #402, Virginia Beach, VA 23451. For further information, call 428-0456. Membership is not required to attend.
