January District Council & Program Assistance Days


All the Districts in the state hold a District Council & Program Assistance Day.

There are a few speakers on a variety of topics, and one topic that is covered is the new site for our NJSFWC annual convention. The convention will be held May 6-8 in Atlantic City at the Golden Nugget.
Another part of the day allows each club to present 3 of their best programs that they have at their monthly meetings over the past year.
The day also allows club members to visit with members from other clubs in their District and of course, there is always food!

Pictured below are club members from the Woman's Club of Denville-Rockaway and sitting at the State Sales table is Nancy Levy, from the Denville-Rockaway club and to her right, Kathy Hunterdon, from the Sussex club and Barbara Mracek, from the Vernon Club, all in the Highlands District.

Margaret Yardley Fellowships available



The Margaret Yardley Fellowship Fund
was established in 1930 to provide fellowship grants to deserving women who are New Jersey residents pursuing post-graduate advanced studies at the school of their choice. The first contribution to the fund in 1930 was $5,000 given by Farnham Yardley in memory of his mother, the first NJSFWC President Margaret Yardley. NJSFWC has been able to award between six and eight $1,000 fellowship grants to deserving women annually. Information (including application forms) regarding this fellowship fund is forwarded to all New Jersey universities, state colleges and independent four-year colleges plus graduate departments at Harvard University and New York University.

Considerations used when judging applicants’ qualifications include scholastic achievement, career service potential and charitable endeavors. The grant is applied solely to tuition expenses. If you know of a young woman who is eligible for this grant, applications are available.

The deadline for all information must be received by the committee at Headquarters by March 1
