Branchburg Woman’s Club
New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs of GFWC
A fun way to help the community since 1960.
Welcome from the BWC
Welcome from the Branchburg Woman’s Club!
The BWC is a non-profit organization of women who want to help the community and participate in fun, creative, and educational activities. As a New Jersey woman with many responsibilities, you may think that your life is too hectic to consider becoming a BWC member. However, even if you only have some time now and then, you can be a valued club member plus build new friendships, broaden your horizons, and help others.
A look at our membership will show that even busy women find participating in club activities worthwhile. It’s an easy way to feel part of the community, meet new people with similar interests, and learn new things.
Club activities have evolved along with the interests of the club members. The club has several extracurricular groups. Some meet in the daytime and some meet in the evening. Activities currently range from crafts, environmental conservation, food appreciation/outings to film and book discussions. New departments can be created as desired. Fun daytime trips, evenings out, and special social events add to the club experience.
Meeting from September through May, typically on the third Thursday evening of the month, the club’s general membership meetings begin with a guest speaker or an activity. Then there are refreshments, followed by a club meeting.
Consider coming to a meeting or two as our guest. Membership inquiries are welcome. Learn how you can become a valued member of our dynamic and diverse group of volunteers by joining the Branchburg Woman’s Club.
