HELLO WCA CLUBWOMEN!
I hope you are all enjoying your summer!
It is often suggested to delegate to get something done. Therefore, I am delegating our membership to go out for lunch or dinner! Specifically, on Thursday, July 30th. More specifically, to the California Pizza Kitchen at the Willowbrook Mall (Wayne) for a FUNdraiser for the Woman's Club of Allwood.
California Pizza Kitchen if not your usual pizzeria. You can enjoy delicious individual gourmet pizzas and delightful meals with a glass of wine. My personal favorite, the BBQ Chicken Pizza with a Pinot Grigio! (check out the menu here)
The Woman's Club of Allwood will benefit by 20% of your food AND beverage orders. You will need to be sure to bring the CPK Flyer (you can download here) with you for the WCA to get the credit.
What could be easier? It's a day out of the kitchen in July, and NAMI-NJ and our charities will benefit from it. Get the word out. Print and pass around flyers to everyone. EVERY 20% COUNTS! Take-out, Catering, Roadside Pick-up too!
I'll be there with my family. Hoping to see you too!
THANK YOU, once again, FOR YOUR SUPPORT! YOU ARE THE BEST!
Club President, 2014-16
On April 25th, the Woman's Club of Allwood observed Arbor Day at the Allwood Branch of the Clifton Public Library.
As befitting a tribute as there could be, a memorial to Shirley Bird, long-time Clifton resident and Woman's Club of Allwood member since 1952, was held.
It was a beautiful event, that would have tickled pink our beautiful English war bride, Shirley. Serving as WCA President for club year's 1971-1973, Shirley held numerous posts and chaired many committees over the years. Most recently, she was the Conservation & Garden Chair.
Past President Dorothy Gondola stepped up to beautifully oversee the program. Mayor James Anzaldi spoke and Shirley’s family officially planted a glorious rhododendron - pink, of course!
Afterwards a luncheon was hosted by The Gondola’s - more pink, but more importantly, fabulous. Thank you to all who joined us.
Please enjoy some pictures of Shirley's presence at the WCA below. Most notably, a feature in the Herald News, circa 1969, in which Shirley, along with Past President Carol Mullane, presented Joseph Demarco, President of the Board of Trustees of the Allwood Branch of the Clifton Library with a special gift from the Woman's Club.
As members of the Woman's Club of Allwood, we have alot to share with you about who we are and what we do. Read the latest here. Enjoy!
