The Woman’s Club of Tewksbury Township opens the 2018 year on Tuesday, January 9, at the Oldwick Manor, behind the firehouse, Oldwick, 08858. Coffee and refreshments will be served at 9 AM. The meeting, chaired by Anne Diamente, Club President, and the program follows.
Carolyn Thow, Board President of Friends of Whittemore, will update WCTT on the changes occurring at Whittemore. Formerly known as the Whittemore Wildlife Sanctuary, “Whittemore. Community. Culture. Conservation.” is being recast as a place for the community to come together to be inspired by nature. Encompassing 180 acres on Rockaway Road the land was bequeathed to Tewksbury Township by Helen Whittemore in 1979. After many years of operating children’s nature camps, the Friends of Whittemore have expanded the mission to include Community, Culture, and Conservation by offering painting workshops, guided nature walks and other opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. The grounds are open daily during daylight hours.
Guests are welcome to this informative talk about a hidden treasure in Oldwick. Required reservations can be made by calling 908-509-1855.
