Our guest speaker for the meeting on February 10th, for Valentine’s Day was a very caring nurse from Children’s Specialized Hospital in Toms River. She spoke to us about the many services that are provided to the children at the hospital and about volunteer opportunities that are available. Thank you, Deirdre, for a very informative afternoon and for all you do for the children! A great big thank you to all the members who donated Valentine’s Day gifts to the children. Your response was overwhelming! We donated many toys, games, puzzles and clothing. What a very generous group of special women!
Our next meeting on April 13th, will be a musical performance by Ocean County College students from the Grunin Center. Hope many will attend as this should be a very enjoyable afternoon. HAS BEEN CANCELLED
