Plant sale 2015-1The Allendale Woman’s Club thanks the community for their annual support of our Flower Sale.

Each year our Homelife Committee brings flowers to local residents.  We received this lovely thank you from one of our former AWC members.

“I got the geranium and was so pleased!  I’d been planning to send an email via the club website to say Thank You.  I knew that you are all aware of my recent loss, so I knew that the flower was meant to cheer me up on my first motherless-mother’s day.  My mother was always so pleased and surprised when she received gifts from AWC.  She always said “Why are these people so nice to me?”  You all made her happy throughout the year, and knowing that you’re still my friends even though I’m no longer a member means the world to me.  Happy Mother’s Day to you and The AWC Ladies!”

Purple Ribbon

Ovarian cancer affects about 1 in 71 women in their lifetime, and it is the eighth most common cancer in women.  Linda Fleischauer, a beloved and active member of the Allendale Woman’s Club, lost her battle with ovarian cancer a few years ago.  In honor of her memory, the Allendale Woman’s Club has established a scholarship fund in her memory for students going on to college.

During the month of September, we will Turn the Town of Allendale Teal to raise awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer. We will also be conducting a fundraising drive to support ovarian cancer research.

Thank you for your support.

The Allendale Woman’s Club (AWC) presented copies of the Busy Book: A Collection of Third Grade Writing to Hillside School’s graduates.  Each third grader is represented in the book, and the stories are written as part of the curriculum under the instruction of the Hillside School’s Third Grade Teachers: Mrs. Clauss, Mrs. Ebneter (pictured on the right), Mrs. McKeon, Ms. Nadel, and Mrs. Termini.

Mrs. Costanza, the Hillside School’s Technology Teacher (pictured on the left), helped the children with word processing and designing their stories.  The AWC has been compiling and professionally printing the writing work of the third graders for more than 50 years.


The Allendale Woman’s Club held its annual Fashion Show “Play for Fashion” on April 9th.  The main beneficiary of the 2014 Fashion Show was the Youth Consultation Service (YCS) Holley Center and other charities.  The more than 465 attendees at this year’s Fashion Show lent their gracious support to this wonderful organization to improve the lives of the extraordinary children who call the Holley Center their home.
