President’s Message

Fall is here.  I sure hope this autumn will be colorful this year, despite all the rain we’ve had.  With fall comes the Heaven Hill Pumpkin Festival.  Linda has been working very hard to make sure the weekends are all covered.  Please check your schedule and call her with your availability through the end of the month.  Husbands and/or friends are also welcome to fill a shift.  My husband really enjoyed working this past Saturday and Monday with me.  Thanks to all who have volunteered.

Our members are busy already this year with projects that will help people in need.  We have collected many items for the domestic abuse shelter.  The Public Issues Department has filled twelve (12) Christmas stockings for the men and women in the military, that will be delivered to Headquarters to add to the Boatsie’s Boxes project, giving our military some joy during the holiday season.

Debbie is working on a project for women in the military.  Karen R. is every enthusiastic about the projects she’s planning for the International Department.  The Home Life Department has many projects they’re working on for Newton Hospital and the Homestead, as is the Special State Project Committee.  Working together is how our club can a difference in our community with each project we do.

Our speaker for the October meeting will be from C.A.S.A.-New Jersey, who will give us lots of information on our Special State Project.  We have invited the Sussex and the Wallkill Valley Woman’s Clubs to join us.  Please also consider bringing a guest.

Looking forward to seeing you all on October 25th.
