The Woman’s Club of Parsippany Troy Hills was organized in 1954 and is a proud member of the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs (NJSFWC) and the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC). The club began providing Citizenship Awards to 8th grade students in 1955. We also sponsored a high school junior to attend Douglas College for a week of college experience. In 1958 an annual scholarship of $300 was awarded to high school seniors. The club is proud to support the youth of our community by continuing these awards to this day. Today we provide six Citizenship Awards to one male and one female in Central Middle School, Brooklawn Middle School, and All Saint’s Academy. We also sponsor one junior girl from Parsippany High and Parsippany Hills to attend Douglas College each year to learn more about college life. Multiple scholarships are awarded to Seniors at Parsippany High, Parsippany Hills and the Morris County School of Technology (must be a Parsippany resident) to help with college expenses. Current scholarship awards are $1000.
In 1961 this club spear-headed a drive for the Township Library. Members were the nucleus of the volunteers who manned the library, with one paid Librarian. In 1969 Members helped spearhead the Parsippany Day Care center and they continue to support them with contributions. This is an example of projects started by the Woman’s Club and organizations we support to this day.
For the past 70 years the Woman’s Club continues to participate in Highland District meetings, State Conferences, Convention and performing art activities. We march in the Memorial Day parade, and partake in the Town’s Trunk or Treat, the club has an information booth at the Town’s Fall Festival and work with the League of Women voters in debates for the Board of Education and Town Council. We collect food at our monthly meeting for the town’s food pantry. We send stuffed holiday stockings to the soldiers, bake cookies for a local nursing home and firemen’s home.
Members enjoy the friendship and camaraderie of our various social activities; international dinners and lunches, Literature groups, scrapbook workshops, mahjong, and attending a local women’s theater.
The mission of the CLUB, which is a non-political, non-sectarian organization, shall be to provide a common meeting ground and bring together the women of the community for fellowship and service. The CLUB shall study and take appropriate action in any endeavors which have for their objectives the educational, cultural, and civic betterment of the community and work in harmony with the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Club and the General Federation of Women’s Clubs.
Our meetings are held on the fourth Monday of each month, September through April, at 7:00 p.m.
