The Vernon Township Woman’s Club held a meet-and-greet introduction to the club’s many charitable, philanthropic and educational activities on Saturday August 24 at the Dorothy Henry Library.
The Vernon Township Woman’s Club (VTWC) is an all -volunteer, non-profit organization established in 1972. Their motto was quoted centuries ago by Greek dramatist Menander, “To live is not to live for one’s self alone let us help one another.”
The event spotlighted the numerous community activities the club has participated in, like designing birthday cards and stuffing birthday bags for residents at The Homestead, remembering our military at Christmastime. The club also assists other non-profits like DASI, CASA and Operation Smile. The members created blankets for clef palate patients. The club also supplies area food pantries and animal shelters with needed items and also awards scholarships to deserving students.
“This is a giving club- giving small actions that make big impacts,” stated 11-year member Lisa Mills. “The Vernon Township Woman’s Club is a group of amazing women dedicated to serving the community,” she added.
