WELCOME TO THE VTWC
The GFWC Vernon Township Woman’s Club is an all-volunteer service organization comprised of compassionate women who share a commitment to helping others. We call ourselves a “giving club” because we give whatever we can, whenever we can. Our club genuinely adheres to the philosophy upon which it was established in 1972: “To live is not to live for one’s self alone; let us help one another.”
We are women of all ages, in all stages of life, living in Sussex County, NJ, in Vernon Township and many surrounding towns. As dedicated volunteers, we consistently make positive contributions in our local community, across the country and around the world. We brighten the lives of students, families in need, soldiers and veterans, social service agencies, nursing home residents and many other segments of the population through a wide range of ongoing programs.
Each member gains personal satisfaction knowing that it truly is better to give than to receive. Coming together with the desire to make the world a better place also brings enrichment to our own lives, as we form wonderful friendships along the way.
Our monthly meetings feature guest speakers, social activities and/or hands-on projects. We convene at 7:00 p.m. on the fourth Thursday of the month from September through June; our November and December meetings are usually one week earlier due to the holidays. The meetings are held at the Vernon Senior Citizens’ Center, 21 Church Street, Vernon. The Center is currently closed due to the pandemic, and we are temporarily meeting at Holy Counselor Lutheran Church, 68 Sandhill Road, Vernon at 1:00 p.m.
Come to a meeting as our guest for a first-hand look at how we change the world, one kind deed at a time.
