New Resident Welcome Service

The Woman’s Club of Tewksbury Township (“WCTT”) is the common thread that weaves through our community.  As part of our mission to support the community through various charitable venues, we launched a new initiative in Spring 2016: The New Resident Welcome Service. This initiative has two aspects: 1) a welcome basket offered to all new homeowners within Tewksbury; and 2) a biannual Meet and Greet for new homeowners to meet members of local community groups and gain an understanding of the role of the community groups.  Our goal is to assist new homeowners with getting acquainted with the area and supporting the local businesses.  To achieve this goal, the WCTT has partnered with the entire community to provide this service and inform new residents of our many hidden gems in the way of unique shops, restaurants and parks.

Current local business participants that have teamed up with the WCTT are:

  • Bex Eatery & Catering
  • Bishop’s Market
  • Black River Roasters
  • Califon Book Shop
