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

 Friends helping Friends

The Woman's League of Mt. Holly is getting ready to 'HANG OUT' at the Burlington County Library. Our Team has a new project in the works and we are in search of an umbrella type clothes rack to be used as a display. We only want to borrow it for the month of October, so if you can hold off hanging out your unmentionables for a month we would greatly appreciate it.

To learn more about project click here:   SOCKTOBER FLYER 

ANOTHER NEED FOR AN UPCOMING PROJECT:  The Woman's League of Mt. Holly is 'FISHING' for a 20 gallon fish tank. (we cannot use a 10 or 50 gal. tank) We wish to use it for a project display at the Burlington County Library. Do you have one sitting in your basement, garage, shed or even your living room just taking up space? Just think about your bragging rights when your friends and family say they saw it and you can tell them YOU DONATED the tank for our amazing work of art. BTW we don't want your fish. 🐠🐟 lol Please call Joyce @609-668-7071 or Gerry @609-265-9091

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
