TMC Attends Federation Spring Conference
Eleven members of the Thursday Morning Club (TMC) recently attended the NJ State Federation of Women’s Clubs (NJSFWC) Highlands District Spring Conference, held at Centenary University in Hackettstown, NJ. The Conference recognizes women’s clubs in the Highlands District (primarily Morris County) for their service to people in their communities and support of the Special State Project, The Emmanuel Cancer Foundation, which assists families with children suffering with cancer.
At the conference, work in various categories, such as, Leadership, Special State Project, Environment, Communications, Domestic Violence Awareness, are recognized and judged. In addition, also judged are arts creative achievements, including paintings, photography, knitting, crocheting, counted cross stitch, baked items, and environmental items, such as floral arrangements. NJ Districts’ award winners are judged at the state level with results announced at the NJSFWC convention in May in Atlantic City.
Presidents of local Women’s Clubs spoke about the service projects each of their Clubs accomplished in the last year. The NJSFWC President, Shirley Holly, congratulated the Highlands District women’s club for their amazing contributions and thanked the volunteers for all they do for their communities.
