We wanted to share some really good news with all of you. This weekend, we attended the State Convention in Long Branch, NJ, and walked away with some great award recognition. They are as follows:
Best Work in Special Project-Advocates for Children-3rd Place
Best Work in International Outreach-1st Place
Best Work in Special State Project-Gilda's Club/The Wellness Community-1st Place; and best of all.....
The Diamond Dozen is awarded to only 12 clubs in the state for
Outstanding Community Service and Volunteerism and we were one of them!
Excellent job, Ladies! We should all be proud of the work that we did in 2010-2011. Additionally, our club was recognized for celebrating its 85th Anniversary this year! We are all part of this tremendous history and have an opportunity to continue the work of our founding members.
These accomplishments truly reflect our motto: "Joy in Service-Pride in Achievement". Congratulations, Ladies! This could not have been possible without each and every one of you!
In Junior Spirit,
Joanna and Adele
The Junior Woman’s Club of Verona would like to thank everyone who came to our annual Bunny Brunch on April 16, 2011. It was great to see families coming together to eat breakfast and meet the Easter Bunny. The money raised from this event benefits our Adopt-a-Family program, which helps families in town who are in need.
This event would not have been possible without the support of some of our local businesses, including Bagelwich, Dunkin Donuts of Cedar Grove, Dunkin Donuts of West Orange, Starbucks in Montclair, Jonathan’s Balloons, Guerilla Fitness, Pals Cabin, Main Street Cottage, Pleasantdale Nurseries, Bromilow’s Chocolates, and Jay’s Shoe Box. A big thank you goes out to Joann Theobald and the Juniorettes for doing a great job with the kids’ crafts and for creating the wonderful signs for this event.
Finally we would like to thank Superintendent Charles Sampson, who allowed us to use the high school cafeteria for this event, and Anthony Carsillo for all of his help before, during and after the event.
Thanks again to everyone who supported our event!
