Members of the Junior Woman’s Club of Verona recently attended the 84th annual convention of the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs – Junior Membership. The Verona club received various awards, including the Diamond Dozen, which is awarded to just 12 clubs across the state for outstanding community service and volunteerism.

Other recognition for the Verona Juniors included first place for Best Work in International Outreach, awarded in part for such projects as the annual UNICEF Halloween party; first place for Best Work in Special State Project-Gilda’s Club/The Wellness Community; third place for Best Work in State Project-The Valerie Fund/Camp Happy Times; and third place for Best Work in Special Project-Advocates for Children. The club also was recognized for celebrating its 85th anniversary this year.

In addition, the 2010-11 co-presidents, Joanna Breitenbach and Lisa Golebieski, were named to the Honor Roll, which is the highest honor a club woman can receive.

During the past year, the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs – Junior Membership has supported The Valerie Fund as its State Project. The Valerie Fund provides support for the comprehensive health care of children with cancer and blood disorders, and the Verona Juniors have championed the cause. In fact, Verona Junior Jennifer Coppola submitted The Valerie Fund for State Project consideration. Many Juniors will participate in The Valerie Fund walk in Verona Park on Saturday, June 11.

The Junior Woman’s Club of Verona continues to give back in other ways as well. The club is hosting a Shop-N-Drop outside of Kings Supermarket on June 11 between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., and members are planning to work on a Habitat for Humanity build on June 18. Anyone interested in participating in those projects or learning more about this very active organization of women is welcome to e-mail [email protected].

Prospective members also are welcome at business meetings, which are held the second Wednesday of each month from September to June at 8 p.m. in the Verona Community Center. For more information, visit the Juniors’ Web site.
