We finished out a very busy February with a great program for our Wise Wonderful Women Lunch & Lecture Series.  Our guest speaker was Walter Choroszewski.  His presentation was “Cinema & Television:  The New Jersey Connection”.  He was raised in PA, but does have a passion for NJ as we could see by his beautiful photographs of NJ.  Our guest tables were decorated like a movie theatre.  We had a delicious prepared by our own Catering Dept.

Our first event for March will be our monthly General Meeting on Thursday 3/7/19 at 10:00 AM.  We will be having a guest speaker Ms. Bettina Bierly: “Backstage Prep for Live Performances, From Lincoln Center to Constellation Cruise Line”.vLincoln Center to Constellation Cruise Line”.

Following our lecture and lunch our members will go into high gear for Operation Cookie / Candy and start filling containers with homemade cookies and candy to be delivered to local nursing homes and senior citizen communities on behalf of TMC.  We love to see the reactions of the senior’s getting their goodies!  

On March 13th, TMC and other NJSFWC Clubs in the Highlands District will meet for a day of entertainment for Arts Performing Day.  This is always a fun day of signing and laughing for our members.

Moving on in March we are hosting another Pop-Up Event! On Saturday, 3/23/19 at 11:00 – 1:00, we will be presenting the 2nd annual Author’s Tea. This year our guest author is Julie Maloney, a widely respected poet and writer whose debut novel.” A Matter of Chance” has been well reviewed by critics and reviewers. Julie is a former dancer and choreographer who presently serves as the artistic director of the dance school she founded in NYC. She is the creator and facilitator of ” Writing to Heal” workshops at the Carol G. Simon Cancer Center of Morristown Memorial Hospital. She is also the host of the “Tea and Conversation” author series at the Bernardsville Library.

One of Julie’s great interests is her work supporting women writers. To this end she founded “Women Reading Aloud”, a non-profit organization devoted to the promotion of women writers. As director of this organization she leads writing workshops throughout the year on a national and international level.

” A Matter of Chance” is a riveting, powerful story of a single mother whose only child disappears. The novel takes the reader on the emotional roller coaster of hope and 

disappointment experienced by this mother, as she refuses to stop searching for her child. Julie will discuss the process of writing and answer questions posed by the audience. The novel will be available for purchase and signing at this event. As our speaker, Julie will share with us her passion for nurturing creativity in everyday life.
