The High Bridge Women’s Group is in its 35th Club Year. Our first meeting was held in June 1979. On September 10, 1980, the High Bridge Women’s Group was incorporated in the State of New Jersey. The group was formed in order to contribute to charitable, civic, educational and cultural activities that support the community of High Bridge.
The Women’s Group continues to be a strong and dedicated local women’s service organization. The Annual Town-Wide Garage Sale is organized by the Women’s Group. Proceeds always go back to the community. Scholarship awards are given to a girl and boy from High Bridge graduating from Voorhees High School. U.S. Savings Bonds are given to a girl and boy graduating from the High Bridge Middle School. The High Bridge Fire Department, Rescue Squad, and the Food Pantry all benefit from the Town-Wide Garage Sale.
The members of the Women’s Group help to serve donuts and cider at the Halloween Parade.
Do you have any idea how many plastic colored eggs are stuffed with jelly beans for the Easter Egg Hunt? A LOT! That job has been done by the Women’s Group for many, many years. On a social scale, our monthly out-to-dinner night is always an enjoyable time.
If you would like to help with any of these projects and meet some terrific people, please come as our guest to one of our meetings. We meet at Borough Hall on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 7:30 p.m.
