Highlighted Projects

Each week in the eConnection we will start highlighting projects selected for the GFWC reports. These projects can, also, be found on the NJSFWC website.

The Woman’s Club of Arlington, the Junior Woman’s Club of Arlington, and the EMD Woman’s Club of Arlington partnered with the West Hudson Arts and Theater Company to produce an original production in celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment entitled “The Right is Ours.” The production included historical speeches, monologues, and scenes. Members dressed in vintage costumes and took various roles. The video presentations were taped individually at a local American Legion Hall, and other members taped themselves reading portions of the preamble of the “Declarations of Sentiments” for advertising promos. Due to the pandemic, the whole production became a virtual event.

The GFWC Woman’s Club of Runnemede had 22 stencils made from the best lines of poems from a recent poetry contest held by the Poetry Society of Southern New Jersey Youth Contest. They used spray chalk to put lines of poetry on sidewalks all around town. In addition, a calendar was created using the lines from the poem and is being sold for $10.00 each. The Reimagine Runnemede, a town organization created a pop-up mural and two murals on walls in the Business District using lines from the poems.

The members of the Woman’s Club of Belleville sponsored their district wide poetry contest. Once permission was obtained from the schools, packets were sent electronically to the five elementary schools, one middle school, and one parochial school for grades 4,5, and 6. The theme was “It’s a Wonderful Life.” Fifty-eight entries were returned for judging. The members who served on the committee volunteer 95 hours for judging, preparing certificates, planned the poetry awards via video and shared on social media with the parent’s permission. Letters were sent to winners, parents and teachers inform them of the event’s conclusions.
