"Believe in the Mission - Be Seen, Be Heard"
The GFWC Woman's Club of Rutherford (WCR) is a non-profit volunteer organization, working toward helping the Community - your fellow man - all done with a spirit of friendship. We are comprised of women ages 18 and older.
The club meets the 1st Monday of each month (except for June, July, and August):
September, December, January, March & May at 12 noon October, November, February & April at 6:30pm
in the clubhouse at 201 Fairview Avenue (corner of Montross Avenue) in Rutherford, NJ.
At our meetings new ideas are presented and future ideas are discussed and planned. Often an informative and interesting program follows, or we sometimes do something just for fun -- like have an auction!
We might even have a working session, such as packaging blizzard bags for Meals on Wheels recipients or working on a crafting project. Either way there is a wonderful feeling of friendship and sense of community!
The GFWC Woman's Club of Rutherford is part of the New Jersey State Federation of Women's Clubs of GFWC.
