BY JANET REDYKE

Aim Vernon

There are truly good and caring people in the world and it was evident at the Feb. 23 bi-monthly meeting of the Vernon Township Women’s Club. The ladies scurried about distributing dozens of varieties of homemade cookies into heart decorated cellophane bags. A yearly campaign, the 102 bags of cookies will be distributed amongst local Sussex County organizations, namely, The Homestead, DASI and Sunrise House.


Following the cookie assembly line, the members welcomed guest speaker Rachael Paulson of Hands on the World Global. A former teacher and recent stay-at-home mom, Paulson began the organization back in 2006.
