About The JWC of Somerset Hills.

The Junior Women's Club of Somerset Hills is part of a national organization - the General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC).  Although we concentrate our efforts on local activites, our association with the GFWC allows us to network and obtain ideas and information from a nationwide group. 

The Junior Women's Club of Somerset Hills has been serving the towns of Basking Ridge, Bernardsville, Warren, Bedminster, Far Hills, and Peapack for over 80 years.  The organization is comprised of local women that enjoy giving back to the community while developing friendships, and more importantly having fun.  Some of our annual events include, Thanksgiving and Easter/Passover baskets for needy familes, Breakfast wtih the Easter Bunny, "Mr. Ray" concert, Teacher Appreciation Cookie trays, Birthday cards for the local seniors and several other projects on a local and national level.
