MADISON — The Thursday Morning Club (TMC) is a non-profit organization of women dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service.

This year TMC created a scholarship to fund the completion of an Associate’s or Bachelor’s College Degree or to obtain a Certificate of Training.  Eligible applicants had a high school diploma or GED and were clients participating in the Dress for Success Program, an organization that empowers women to achieve economic independency by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools to help women thrive in work and life. The scholarship is for education-related expenses incurred during the pursuit of a degree or certification.  The scholarship is renewable.

This June, the Scholarship Committee of TMC reviewed the applications, selected the recipient and determined the amount of the scholarship.

TMC and DFS are pleased to announce that the first annual recipient of the TMC Scholarship has been awarded to Simone Roelli.  Ms. Roelli is a full-time working mother and a volunteer at Dress for Success.  Ms. Roelli is also a full-time student at Rutgers University, and, with the help of this scholarship, on track to complete her bachelor’s degree in Accounting by May 2020.

The official presentation of the scholarship will take place and the Madison Community House in the evening of September 16, 2019.

Organized in 1896, TMC is a member of both the New Jersey State and General Federation of Women’s Clubs.  The club offers programs and services to support the community, and its Community House provides a home for a number of sports, recreation, civic groups and the Madison Community House Preschool.  The Thursday Morning Club is a non-profit service organization with over 260 members whose goal is to provide services for the town of Madison and neighboring communities.

For information about the Thursday Morning Club or membership, call the Community House at (973) 377-0244 or visit www.TMCMCH.org
