We support our community. We’re active women of all ages with diverse life experiences — homemakers, businesswomen, teachers, nurses, executives and retirees — who combine their skills to provide community service when and where it is needed. For more than a century, Woman’s Club of Ramsey has helped Ramsey maintain its library, fire department, ambulance corps, parks and schools.

We meet new friends. Our circle of friends grows as we share our talents with women with similar interests and goals. We’re proud that we helped make Ramsey a wonderful place to live, and we’re grateful that lending a hand to people in need enriches our own lives.

We enjoy monthly meetings. Our meetings aren’t just planning sessions — they feature local chefs, craft projects, and special talks on art, gardening, local history and other popular topics.

We fill our social calendar. We enjoy holiday parties and summer picnics, gather for luncheons and potluck meals, and celebrate new members at a May installation luncheon.

We’re proud of our achievements. We develop leadership skills and discover new paths toward self-enrichment. Personal growth is fostered at an Achievement Day luncheon recognizing outstanding creative work — handicrafts, baking, photography, art, and more. Performing Arts Day gives everyone a chance to take center stage. And, at the annual NJSFWC Convention, we celebrate the power of women working together, one project at a time, to make a difference in their towns and in the world.

At our April 18 meeting at the Ramsey Senior Center, we discussed our membership drive and planned our Farmers’ Market festivals and other summer activities. We also held a vote to set the Club’s executives for the coming year.

We’re marking our calendars for the May 16 Installation Luncheon at Mahwah Bar & Grill. Our new District Vice President Kathy Sullivan and former DVP Tina Ree are our guests.

The Heirloom Tomato & Veggie Plant Sale is coming up! On Saturday, May 18, get a head start on your garden at our display at the Masonic Lodge parking lot. Watch for details on how to pre-order.

We kick off our Farmers’ Market festivals on Sunday, June 2, when we serve free strawberry shortcake at the Ramsey train depot. Did you know that when the depot was built in 1868, it wasn’t meant for passengers — it was to carry “red gold,” the strawberry crop of 50,000 baskets daily, from Ramsey.

See you at the pool! Visit our table at the New Resident Mixer on June 11 at 5 pm at the Ramsey Municipal Pool. We’ll have our flyers and application forms ready for you.

At a double event at Portobello’s on April 16, we reported on our 2023 fundraisers at the morning Ramapo District Spring Conference, and after lunch we applauded two of our members who won Achievement Day awards.

We were a hit at Performing Arts Day. In March, Marjorie Detweiler explained how New Jersey women’s clubs supported our nation in times of peace and war, and we gave out copies of our “Red, White, and Blue — And You” leaflet. Marge repeated her performance at the Past Presidents’ Luncheon, and will present it at other events. All our flyers can be downloaded at the Leaflets menu.

Keep bringing food to the St. Paul’s Food Pantry! Take donations directly to Food Pantry bins at the rear of the St. Paul’s parking lot. This month we’re contributing cookies and snacks.
