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

"Together Everyone Achieves More" (TEAM)

                                                 

 

Message from our President, Doreen…

 

Thank you to all the members who didn't stop working this past year during the pandemic but continued to actively help the community through various service projects!  You truly exhibited this President's theme of "Together Everyone Achieves More" (TEAM)!

 

This past year, our Great TEAM donated food, money and gift cards to over a dozen organizations.  Infants/children received items ranging from diapers, to birthday bags and school supplies.  We supported our active military and their families as well as Veterans.  Various recycled items were collected enabling the club to procure a TREX bench (or 2 or 3).  Bingo prizes and themed parties were provided to Seniors and Nursing Home Residents.  A local High School student was awarded a scholarship.  Items were donated to help the Victims of Domestic Violence and Immigrant Workers.  These were just  a few of the many projects our members were involved in.

 

I'm anxiously looking forward to this year, where we can meet in person again and continue our vital work in helping the communities both near and far. Thank you all for your support in volunteering your time and talents to help others.  As the President of the Woman's League of Mount Holly, I can say with pride, "What a Great TEAM we make"! I am looking forward to the start of a new club year with all my Mount Holly Federation Sisters!

 

Sincerely,

Doreen Carnvale

First of all, this President is so very proud of how the members worked so well as a TEAM setting up, bringing refreshments, and working at the Designer Bag Bingo Fundraiser making it such a successful event! Thank you for all your help, it was greatly appreciated! It was nice to see members out together at a function other than seeing each other as a small picture on a laptop or hearing a voice via Zoom.

Wreaths Across America

Wreaths Across America Day on Saturday

The Woman's League of Mt. holly joined in honoring Veterans by placing wreaths on the graves of our members' family buried at Brig. Wm. Doyle Military Cemetery in Wrightstown. Joining together, on behalf of us all were our members and Veteran husbands Bette and Larry Kirby, Elaine and Daniel Eufemia, and Joelle and Dave Wentz. We thank all our men and women who served.

A MERRY, THANKFUL CHRISTMAS TO ALL

As we enter this season of hope and peace, the ladies of The Woman's League of Mt. Holly wish all our friends and neighbor's a wonderful holiday. We wish you joy and good health and thank you for your support this past year. Not only for your generosity, but for the many kind words directed at our members who work tirelessly to bring those in need a measure of hope and peace.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL

 

As we move into 2022 the GFWC Woman's League of Mt. Holly wants to wish our families, our friends, our neighbors a year of peace, good health and hope for a year of many blessings. As the last year progressed our ladies tried to thank you all for your overwhelming support of our projects. Our purpose and goal to help our neighbors in need was magnified over and over again as you all stepped up to help as we collected plastic bags, threw an apartment shower for Vets, supplies for the refugees at JBMDL, gifts for our Wish tree, socks for our homeless. The list goes on and on. As our ladies begin the process of writing our reports for the year 2021, it becomes apparent that you made us shine. You enhanced our reputation within our community. How appropriate our President, Doreen Carnvale's theme 'TEAM'. symbolizes 'Together Everyone Achieves More'. We could not done it without OUR TEAM.

Upcoming Fundraisers

Several fundraisers are held during the club year to raise money for the various charitable causes this club supports.  Scheduled for 2020-2021 club year are Terri Lynn Nuts, Fire and Ice Fundraiser, Bake Sales, Designer Bag Bingo, and yard sales.

 

Next up:

At tonight’s Woman’s League Zoom Meeting it was decided not to participate in Fire and Ice this year. With our aging population and the increase of COVID cases in Burlington County, everyone thought it best to forego this activity for this year. Even with everyone wearing masks, people are still getting COVID.  Maybe by St. Patty’s Day, numbers may be down and we can participate in another activity in Mount Holly.
