The Woman's League of Mount Holly was organized in 1903 when nine women sought to meet the many needs they saw in town.  Their first project was providing nursing care to needy townspeople.  By raising money from door-to-door collections and a horse show, they began the Woman's League Nursing Service.  This club was instrumental in hiring a township school nurse and, initially, even sharing her salary with the Board of Education. During the 1974-76 administration, the League headed up the "Save the Mount" project and won a Conservation prize from Shell Oil Company.  The Club was recognized for its outstanding work on the Special State Project, Canine Companions for Independence (CCI), by the New Jersey Federation of Women's Clubs.

 

Our work continues today with many special projects.  The Club has approximately 50 members from Mount Holly, Eastampton, Hainesport, Lumberton, Mount Laurel, and Westampton.  However, our membership is not restricted to just these locations.  

 

So please consider joining us at our general meetings for more information

President's Corner

President’s Message

Doreen Carnvale

Welcome to this new and challenging club year! This past spring and summer certainly has been a memorable one as the club continued to move forward during a pandemic, and we are still not out of the woods.

Although we haven't physically been able to meet since March, our club still provided vital services to our local communities. Through the efforts of members and friends, our club was able to donate over 1,750 sewn masks to 13 organizations and members' families. In addition, our members were generous by providing food, gift cards and, on occasion, monetary donations to staff at local hospitals, rehabilitation centers, police departments, local food pantries and church luncheons.

The summer didn't stop the Woman's League of Mount Holly as the sewers once again, took up the challenge to sew Christmas stockings for the Operation Yellow Ribbon project. School supplies were also collected for two organizations.

Our new State President, Jan Hanson, has chosen the theme, "Let Our Voices Soar." As I look back at all our accomplishments just these past months, I have seen how well everyone has worked together and have chosen our theme to be "Together Everyone Achieves More" (TEAM). I am honored to be leading this TEAM of great women. Thank you all for your generosity and service!
