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.

The AWC members thank all their guests, donors and sponsors who participated in the 2014 “Play for Fashion” Show for helping make dreams come true!

Three years ago the AWC began a relationship with YCS Holley Center.   This year the AWC members wanted to help the 63 children live their dream “to be just like the regular kids”… their dream to play ball, go bowling, learn to swim, experience an art class, ballet and much more.

…the children’s dreams can finally come true!
