The Hopatcong Woman’s Club has again outgrown its meeting place, and has now secured the Elba Point Beach Club as its new location for the third Wednesday of each month membership meetings. It is an exciting time for us, as many young and enthusiastic members are joining us in our efforts to support our community and local charities. We are fortunate that the Elba Point Beach Club has welcomed us and we hope to hold meetings in this location for 2020 and beyond.
This time of year we look back on the many good causes we support, and review a summary of totals that have been compiled. Some of our latest stats: We collected almost 300 pairs of shoes for Soles for Souls, supported DASI (Domestic Abuse and Sexual Assault Intervention Services) with over $1,000 in donations, donated $1,200 worth of items to the CASA organization for college students who have aged out of the advocacy program, and provided Head Start Families with Holiday cookies and gifts. Of course our ongoing food drive that helps the food pantry, handled by West Side Methodist Church. Totaled over 3,000 lbs of food in 2019. (HWC’s collection bins, located at The Hopatcong Post Office and Hopatcong Borough Hall for non-perishable donations.)
All local women looking to form new friendships and to find a special niche or pet project of interest are encouraged to join us on the third Wednesday of each month at 10:30am from October through April, at our new home Elba Point Beach Club at 30 Ithanell Rd. September and May events may be held at local restaurants where we have guest speakers, so check ahead by calling Member Chairperson Lisa Hirschfeld at 973-479-9228 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
