 Happy Holidays, CC of HHK!

Can you believe how fast the Fall has flown past us?

We have had such a terrific start to our 2016-2017 year – from our much loved Progressive Dinner and Halloween Parade and Party to a November general meeting wine tasting with Carlo Russo and the culmination of our first ever Pick Em Fantasy Football League.

And have you seen the adorable, must-have products that Social Services have put forth for the holidays?!  On the heels of the wildly successful Ho-Ho-Kus Pocus Halloween tubs now come these gorgeous cocktail napkins boasting with town pride. Get them while they’re hot – see our “ad” on CC of HHK Facebook page or be in contact with Nicole Garcia and Stacey Reddy for complete details.  

As a reminder, community is at the core of what we do with The Contemporary Club.  It’s never felt so good to give back while engaging in fun social activities and building long-lasting friendships amongst our membership. We’re proud to share that membership is up – we’ve welcomed 20 new ladies into the club since September!  And there’s certainly room for more, so feel free to bring your new neighbor or friend from town to our next gathering – we have a Holiday Party for the little ones scheduled for 12/18 and a Winter Social Night for the adults that will have you and laughing the winter blues away on 1/28. Details to come…

Remember to keep up to date with our happenings on Facebook, check your emails for Evites and Gmail communications, and visit our website.  If you have any questions about the club, reach us at

Wishing you and yours peace, warmth, love and light this holiday season!
