President’s Message

Welcome Fall! hope all of you enjoyed many activities during the summer. enjoyed trips to Scranton (my husband loves trains), Lancaster, and Vermont.  However, even though there were no meetings, the members of our board have many exciting things planned for this year. has engaged very interesting speakers. Remember to see Linda and sign up for Heaven Hill. The Fall Festival begins on September 15 this year. is an important fund raiser and I encourage all of you to sign up to help.

Judy, Elaine H., and I attended the Lobster Luncheon on Swartswood Lake to benefit “Court Appointed Special Advocates of Morris and Sussex Counties” (C.A.S.A.), our Special State Project. made a gorgeous “basket” for the silent auction, which was a big hit. It was a great day, despite the weather. The NJSFWC is collecting empty duffle bags (any size) for C.A.S.A. This is to enable the children to carry their belongings with them when they move to different homes. you’d like to donate a duffle bag, we will be taking them to the Council meeting on September 12.

September 8  is the Vernon Street Fair sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce. look forward to judging the “Pumpkin Everything” contest. Thank you to all who volunteered to help us. gives us another chance to say “thank you” for the generous check they presented us as part of the proceeds of “Taste of Vernon.”

We begin our year with our traditional Pot Luck Dinner. the meeting starts at 6:30 pm instead of 7:00 pm. also have the opportunity to hear how our sponsorship of GCI has helped a high school student, by hearing from the delegate about her experiences.

I’m looking forward to seeing you all again at the meeting on Thursday, September 27th. , please consider bringing a friend to any of our meetings. in mind that we will always welcome new members.
