Message from Our President
Welcome Back! Here’s hoping that everyone is getting settled into new routines, seamless back to school transitions and that we’re inching closer to cooler, crisper Fall temperatures.
I was so thrilled to be kicking off the 2016-2017 year with our Garden Party. Special thanks to former board member, Febbie Staniar for opening her beautiful home to us, and to committee members Heather Harris, Vanessa Lambrix and Kathy Kennedy for planning a great event.
We have some exciting things happening with CC of HHK this year. As I spoke about at the Garden Party, the club has a long-standing position of supporting our community. Last year, we supported not only our club beneficiaries – YAC, Angel Fund, Ho-Ho-Kus-Waldwick Co-op, Seniors, CERF, but we were also able to raise money for causes like Autism and Cerebral Palsy. And even presented a $2,000 scholarship to HHK resident, Dillon Rice.
Community is at the core of who we are in the Contemporary Club. While Fundraising is a large part of what we’re dedicated to doing for the year ahead (we’d so love to raise $15K by end of May/early June!), fostering and nurturing friendships and social interaction amongst our members, friends, children and larger community are also top priorities.
You’ll see some crave-worthy product sales (have you seen those adorable Halloween tubs?!), innovative programming (hats off to Linda Pordon for her slate of Man Date gatherings for the men) and special perks for members.
I hope to see you at our Progressive Dinner coming up on 10/15 – it’s probably the most popular of our events and promises a fun night out where members get to mix and mingle while enjoying cocktails and apps, a gourmet sit down dinner and after-party. The best part? This year, all of this fun and revelry will benefit an amazing cause: our beneficiaries! So have that extra glass of wine – it’s in the name of good fun and charitable cause.
We’re doing our best to ensure our messages and events are reaching everyone. If you’re not receiving our Evites or Gmail emails – or would like to be put on our list – kindly send a note to us at email@example.com Be sure to join our Facebook Group, and visit our website: ccofhhk.com
Have a Fantastic Fall!
