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.

Put yourself in the picture — we love to welcome new members.

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.

Guy Jones of Blooming Hill Farms shares gardening tips.

We look forward to summer picnics and Farmers’ Market fundraisers.

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 report on our achievements at District Council meetings.

In a July double-donation day, the Club gave checks to Ramsey Responds to help Ramsey residents in need, and Several Sources Shelters, to support their programs for pregnant women and their babies. 

Every June, the Club sends a deserving senior to the Ramsey High School Prom. The school chooses the girl (her identity is top secret!), and we send her on a shopping spree. This year’s lucky senior sent us a thank-you note to tell us she had a wonderful time.

At the New Resident Mixer at the Ramsey Pool in June, we handed out bookmarks, flyers and application forms to invite newcomers to join the Club. There’s more info on the Join Us menu.

We kicked off our Farmers’ Market festivals the first Sunday in June, when we served free strawberry shortcake at the Ramsey train depot. Fun fact: 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.

On Memorial Day, as we do every year, we sent a wreath to be placed at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument in Veterans Park. We’re proud that in the 1920s our Club arranged for land to be donated to create the original Bonny View Park.

Our 21st Heirloom Tomato & Veggie Plant Sale drew crowds to the Masonic Lodge parking lot in May. A big thank-you to local gardeners, who came early, chose their favorite plants, and dashed home to get their gardens started.

At our May Installation Luncheon at Mahwah Bar & Grill, Ramapo District Vice President Tina Ree installed our new Governing Committee. We were delighted that new and prospective members joined our gathering.

At Portobello’s in April, 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 peace and war, and we handed out copies of our “Red, White, and Blue — And You” leaflet. All our flyers can be downloaded at the Leaflets menu on this website.

Keep bringing food to the St. Paul’s Food Pantry! Take your donations of shelf-stable items directly to the Food Pantry bins at the rear of the St. Paul’s parking lot.
