The Junior Woman’s Club of Westfield is hosting their Annual New Member Fall Beer & Wine Tasting on Wednesday, October 15, 2014 at 8pm at the home of a member. If you are interested in attending please email or rsvp to mhiggins929@gmail.com.

The Junior Woman's Club of Westfield is an organization of volunteers committed to improving the lives of people in our community and in our state. The club has been in existence since 1927 and was recently recognized by the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs of GFWC in appreciation of 70 years of distinguished service to the community and the state. This year alone the JWC has helped many organizations and people in the community through charity events and service. 

In early March the JWC held a fundraising event at Shackamaxon Country Club for Imagine located in Westfield.  The evening included dinner and dancing while fundraising for a good cause. The JWC raised $25,000 for Imagine to continue their effort in helping children and adults who are grieving due to a death in their family. In May the club presented a Westfield High School Senior with a $1500 scholarship to use towards college expenses.   The club also held a diaper drive and worked with Habitat for Humanity in building homes for people in need in NJ.  Our upcoming Coat Drive will be taking place October 20-November 3rd at the Westfield Memorial Library.  The coats we collect will be delivered to the Elizabeth Coalition for the Homeless.
