The Thursday Morning Club of Madison held a Scholarship Social and Game Day on Jan. 25 at the Madison Community House, 25 Cook Ave.

The event was a great success both socially and financially and honored the recipients of scholarships which sponsored students at multi-day institutes in June. HOBY (Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership) recipient Logan Sabol, his mother, Madison High School guidance director Brett Levine and Mary Jane Breen of The Women’s Club of Edgewater Park were honored guests. 

Sabol spoke about the intensive immersive leadership experience that took place at Kean University designed for sophomores who have demonstrated strong leadership potential and the ability to "think outside the box."

"I believe that every participant was inspired and walked away with something completely different," said Sabol at the end of his speech. "What I walked away with were the tools to think and act as an individual and to make better decisions as a leader."

Mary Jane Breen, Education Committee chair of Edgewater Park’s Women’s Club, read a letter written by De’nai Simms of Burlington Township High School. The Thursday Morning Club of Madison contributed to the sponsorship of De’Nai at the Girls’ Career Institute in June. 

This event is offered in June to junior high school girls to spend four days at Douglass College to focus on career opportunities. In her letter, De’Nai said that the experience led her to "being more comfortable in the choices I make and being confident with myself."

Both students considered their experiences to be life-changing events and thanked the Thursday Morning Club for their support.

The Education Committee of the Thursday Morning Club extends sincere appreciation to all those who attended, and to those who volunteered their time before, during and after the function to make it fun for all while generating funds for these leadership institutes, as well as scholarships for Madison Junior School students and the winners of the Memorial Day Patriotic Contests.

Thursday Morning Club—a social and philanthropic organization—owns, operates and maintains the Madison Community House, nursery school and before- and after-school child care programs. 

Established in 1896, the club is a member of both the New Jersey State and General Federation of Women’s Clubs. The club offers programs and services to support the community, and its Community House provides a home for a number of sports, recreation and civic groups.
