President’s Message

April 2017


Here we are in April, the end of the club’s fiscal year. Reflecting on my first 12 months as president, it’s quite clear that this is a ‘giving’ club. We act simply out of kindness and the desire to help others. In recognition of our accomplishments, the Highlands District invited us to report on our activities at the spring conference.

 

Here are some highlights:

 

We gave 27 backpacks full of men’s toiletries to the homeless shelter…25 bath towels to Earth Angels…75 Christmas gifts to children in abusive situations…hundreds of pillows and blankets to hospital patients...12 Christmas stocking to Boatsie’s Boxes…1,300 crossword puzzles to veterans…192 cell phones for soldiers…120 hats to Warmth for Warriors…$1,400 in scholarships and awards to local students…35 baby caps to Prevent Child Abuse-NJ…and an SUV-full of granola bars to Supplies for Soldiers.  Our current project to support Free the Girls has far exceeded its goal of 500 bras and will still continue for several more weeks.

 

The dedication and generosity of our membership continues to amaze me.  I am proud to work with all of you.
