BOONTON — In support of Child Abuse Prevention month, pinwheels were placed at 46 West Hair Studio, located on Main Street, and Dimensions in Black and White Salon, located on Washington Street.
Prevent Child Abuse chose the ‘pinwheel’ as a national symbol of prevention because it is whimsical and evokes childlike notions, exemplifying the “Great Childhoods” we desire for all children.
Prevent Child Abuse is just one of the many nonprofit organizations that the Woman’s Club of Boonton has supported. In spite of the pandemic, over the past year, the club was still able to support many organizations, such as the local food pantry, the Fireman’s Home, Family Promise, and made stockings for both Operation Christmas stockings and Operation Chillout, the NJSFWC Special State project for 2020-2022, an organization that supports homeless Veterans.
The club is also actively looking for new members to join their club! Today women’s clubs meet for community service, developing friendships, and to have fun. Even during these difficult times, the club has continued to meet, socialize and support the community. For more information, email the club at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Woman’s Club of Boonton is a member of the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs (NJSFWC), a nonprofit, community service organization that was established in 1894, and founded the New Jersey College for Women, now Douglass Residential College in 1918.
