Meeting Minutes


November 2014

Chairman's Message......

Thank you to



Our entire club for their hard efforts at the pumpkin patch at Ort Farms in October.  It was a huge success…the biggest to date.  First, we sold out of nachos and cheese.  Then, it was hamburgers and chili.  Finally, the baked goods were totally gone and we had 8 hot dogs left with a couple of cases of soda.  The planning and work was terrific.  Thanks to the husbands, friends, and partners that helped out as well.  We just had a beautiful weekend that could have only been better with a little less wind.  Congratulations to the 1st Aid Squad for how seemless an effort this fundraiser was.  Profits have not yet been reported to me yet.



The luncheon at the Black Forest Inn with the Long Valley Women’s Club was a lovely way to feel the spirit of the October season.


Our November meeting will be at Jill Wanner’s house at 10 Cindy Lane, Long Valley on November 12th at 7pm. Each member will brought a soup they made and invited a woman who might be interested in joining the EMD for a social dinner. We had Mexican Train Dominoes for a little fun afterwards. 



Andrea Schick wanted us to know the 1st Aid Squad had a  meeting at the Squad Building Wed. Nov. 12 at 7:30 pm. and invited us, but we had our Souper Social. They  discussed the Mutual Aid Christmas Party Dec. 10 at the Long Valley Firehouse. Everyone is asked to bring an unwrapped toy.

They will also discuss our Christmas Party Dec. 17 at the Squad Building.



“The Hidden Child” was a presentation at the Morris County Community College that Annette Sadloski , Carol Procter and 3 others went to view on November 12th.  She was a hidden child in the Netherland the entire Nazi occupation and discussed her memories. 







November 12th...the Long Valley Women's Club EMD will be having a Souper Social at Jill Wanner's home.  Members will be bringing our soups and inviting Long Valley residents to have a membership drive.  There will be a Christmas ornament craft to create and Mexican Train Dominoes for fun.  We are seeking new members actively in a variety of ways. 


December 10th... the EMD of Long Valley Women's Club will be having a holiday gathering at Carol Procter's home with a Chinese Auction and holiday cheer.  We will discuss whether you want to coordinate with the 1st Aid Squad’s Christmas Party.


January 14th...there will be a preparation for our largest event, The Chili Cookoff, at Jill Wanner's home again.  





February 7th... The Chili Cookoff from 5pm-8pm at the Schooley's Mountain Fire Prevention Center.  It costs $8 for all you can eat (chili w/cheese, rice, corn bread, homebaked bread, coffee, and baked goods for sale as well with some down home musical entertainment.  We invite you all to come and join us for an evening that you don't have to cook and all profits go to emergency services in our area. 



March 11th...Caring for Caregivers presented by Visiting Nurse Association will be at the Schooley's Mountain Fire Prevention Center and open to the public.  This is a useful program to help those who may be responsible for caring for a loved one.  It should be extremely useful whether you are in this situation now or may be in the future.

Minutes of March 9, 2011



Joyce called meeting to order at 7:20 PM.


Vice Chairman Report:    Carol stated that the leftover tee shirts from our chili cook-off last year were used for prizes for the Read Across America project  and that the children had made hand drawn thank you notes for receiving them.


Education:  Carol reported the Breaking Barriers contest is over.  She would like to bring the entries down to the Top 10 to review for prizes.  The theme was based on Jackie Robinson's ethics and barriers   he had  transcended and to relate that to their own barriers/issues they had encountered.  Carol requested a volunteer(s) to help her go through the submissions.  Joyce volunteered to help her on a weekend to go over them and Rosann offered to help also.


Financial:  Jill passed out copies of the Allocations to go over tonight.  There is currently $5,614.23 balance in the checkbook.  The Allocations discussion centered on the 5 percent taken off for in-club funds  and the question raised of using the funds for members social events.  The discussion will be continued at next month's meeting when hopefully we will have 100 percent attendance.  The General Allocations discussion recommendations were to increase our donations to the Battered Women's Shelter, Scholarships,  Community Food Bank, Washington Twp Historical Society,  and to add donations to Fostering Wishes, Project Graduation, Washington Twp Library, Gilda's Club State Project, and the Blue Sheet State Federation Distribution.  Rosann made a motion to accept the allocations as proposed and Annette seconded.  All voted and motion passed.


Corresponding Secretary and Home Life:  Bernice stated there were two scout ceremonies this weekend as had been sent out previously in an email.  She read a thank you note from Tom Cross.  Nothing to report for Home Life other than St. Patrick's Day coming up, Lent, and time change this weekend.


Bev reported that the Woman's Club is having a non-food shower - donate paper goods not food items.


Joyce stated that the GFWC had sent a letter requesting donations in memory of Phyllis Schneck, a past EMD State Chairman, be made to the library in Rutherford.  Club agreed to send a $25. donation.


EMD Spring Conference is Saturday, March 19.  No one from our club will attend.


New Business:


Annette presented a prospective program for our club - the Foot Store in Chester will give a presentation on foot care and in return donates money once a month to a charity of choice.  He could come to our club next year  as one of our programs.  Details will be given to Carol for program suggestion.


Annette also suggested using Operation Jersey Cares who provides packaging guidance for sending food donations to our troops.  We could use them to send our package and will not cost us postage.  It would have to be mailed by April 2.  Joyce and Annette will look into this and handle sending our package.


Nominations for Officers for club year 2011-2012 were made as follows:

Chairman - Joyce

Vice Chairman - Carol

Treasurer - Jill

Recording Secretary -

Corresponding Secretary - Bernice

These positions will be voted on at the next meeting.
