Summit College Club Seeks Members

Summit College Club
Seeks New Members

The Summit College Club, a branch of the American Association of University Women, is seeking new members to add to its roster.  Enrollment is open to all women and men holding the associate degree or higher; current members come from Union, Essex, Somerset, and Morris Counties in NJ, New York City, and beyond.

AAUW promotes equity for all women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research, and so each year, several Summit College Club programs seek to build community awareness of women’s issues.  Two recent speakers were a spokesperson for “Room to Read,” a program bringing literacy, books, and education to countries in need, and a Pakistani health worker with experience in women’s reproductive health.

SCC/AAUW has a lively calendar of cultural and social outings as well.  Many members join for the community and friendship that the organization offers.  The SCC’s book discussion group is so popular that it will soon split into two.  This fall alone, the calendar includes outings (always optional) to the Ballantine House at the Newark Museum; to a night at the opera, Carmen, in Montclair; to Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton; and to attendance at a musical, Sister Act, in Morristown.  Also on the agenda:  a talk by the SCC/AAUW  member who runs the State Repertory Opera of New Jersey, and a lecture on Hildegard of Bingen, a twelfth century revolutionary thinker and writer.  A monthly luncheon at a local restaurant and the annual Christmas party form the backbone of the club’s activities. 

“Members choose what they want to do from an array of options; there is no obligation involved,” comments Leslie Carson, membership chair.  “Currently, our yearbook lists about 65 members.  The more members we have, the more we can do.”

In terms of service, the highlight of the club’s year is the annual used book sale held in New Providence.  Last year, members collected, sorted, and displayed for sale nearly 50,000 books.  The five-day book sale is eagerly anticipated and regularly attracts hundreds of customers, dealers and readers from NJ, NY, and PA.  Many people return on successive days, emerging with shopping bags full of affordable books, CDs, and DVDs.  The Summit College Club then uses all proceeds to fund scholarships for local high school girls.

For further information or a membership application form, telephone or email Leslie Carson at 908-464-7176 or jimles59@verizon.net.

Is FAANG Long in the Tooth?

Investors love to rally around a stock story. Today it’s all about the FAANG stocks. Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), Netflix (NFLX) and Google (GOOG) are a major reason why the S&P 500 rallied so much in 2017. Mr. Market is convinced the FAANGs are impervious to a sell-off. “Its different this time” is ringing loud and clear, but will the outcome really be that ...
