From Our President... Kathleen Bagley PRESIDENT WOMAN'S CLUB OF SPRING LAKE
Our objectives are to support the charitable, operational, educational and social needs of organizations and individuals. We achieve these goals by raising funds throughout the year for local charities and our scholarship program. Our annual scholarship luncheon and gift raffle generate funds for scholarships to local high school students and women returning to college. Our club sponsors trips to cultural events, museums, musical events, and overnight trips. We sponsor food drives, bake sales, clothing collections, luncheons, and dinners. We work hard but we enjoy the company of our members. We belong to the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs(NJSFWC), founded in 1894, with over 200 clubs throughout the State.
