Bert Baron, the well-known WCTC AM radio morning talk show host, was the guest speaker at the February 1st Suburban Woman’s Club meeting at the South Plainfield American Legion Hall, attended by 22 members. 

With the same upbeat, conversational style Mr. Baron uses on his morning show, he recounted his love for radio from early childhood, his dream to someday have his own show, and how, with hard work and what he called good timing, he was hired to host the morning show which he still hosts nearly 20 years later.  Mr. Baron didn’t mention his considerable talent which attracts tens of thousands of followers each day as they drive to work and call in to discuss issues of the day.  His radio skills and devotion to New Jersey came to the attention of the New Jersey Broadcasters Association, which inducted him in the New Jersey Broadcasters Association Radio Hall of Fame in 2015.  Mr. Baron said that talk radio has a great future because there are few other mediums that provide the type of content that one finds on talk radio.

Prior to hearing this very interesting talk, President Diana Cotone called the meeting to order at 1:00 p.m. and thanked Adele Kwiatkowski and Alberta Esposito for the light lunch provided for the meeting.  After the reading of the minutes and Treasurer report, District Vice President Maribeth Hugelmeyer encouraged members to participate in the February 10th event, “Going to the Dogs” -- New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs members will pack donated items for the use of service dogs which are trained by three veteran’s service dog organizations.  The majority of the service dogs will be paired with veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress.   Education Chair Debbie Boyle updated members on the January 23rd Spelling Bee hosted by the Club and South Plainfield Cultural Arts.  Arts Creative Chair Judy Krieg and Maribeth Hugelmeyer will present hand-made lap robes to veterans residing at the Menlo Park Veterans Memorial Home on February 15th.  Club VP Jane Rundella discussed the spring Fashion Show tentatively scheduled for April 22nd and Membership Chair Grace Bertucci formally inducted new member Barbara Cirigliano into the Club.
