President’s Message


Happy New Year! I hope this year is not only happy, but also healthy for all.

January is always a month to reflect on the past year and 2020 is no exception. As we write our reports reflecting on the many projects we did and the many lives we touched and helped during 2019, we can hardly believe we did so much. I’m very proud of all our accomplishments. Last year we won many awards for our reports with wonderful narratives. Let’s keep this in mind, so we can not only win more awards, but share with the NJSFWC what the Vernon Township ladies have done to help our community and state.

 I’m thrilled that we welcomed many wonderful new members this year.

Five of us attended the January Council meeting where we received a wealth of information as well as opportunities as a member of New Jersey State Federation of Woman’s Clubs. Maria reported on our programs. This is a very good meeting to consider attending in the future, as we get to hear about what the other clubs are doing, giving us ideas for programs that we may want to use. Thanks for all the nightlights that were donated for CASA’s foster children.

The Highlands District will be holding a Spring Membership Open House on Wednesday, March 18 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm at the Hardyston Township Fire Department Hall in Stockholm. This is a good opportunity for us to advertise our club in the hopes to welcome even more new members during 2020.


Looking forward to seeing you all at the meeting on January 23rd with a wonderful program “The Beautiful Countryside of Sussex County” by Bill Truran.
