Education & Libraries
Books are read, discussed and reports are given. We take part in Paramus Library events, donate books and read to children in the area.
Arts Performing – Music
This dept offers an opportunity for those who love to dance, sing or perform in any way. We are a unique resident troupe known as the Estelle Reo Dancers. We not only perform for our club but also nursing homes, hospitals, and Federation events. Yearly, we put on a holiday show. Rehearsals occur weekly until the performance. Meetings are held prior to each season to discuss ideas for the show. Dance instruction as well as accompaniment is provided by members as are costumes, music and stage decor.
Health & Wellness
We work on service projects for our local social service department in conjunction with families in need. We assemble “Blizzard Bags” for those who may not be able to go out when the weather is bad. We collect clothing for families in need and assemble Tray Favors for nursing homes. Easter baskets are also donated to a local domestic abuse shelter. Our holiday project is Operation Yellow Ribbon, stockings are stuffed with goodies for soldiers overseas.
Arts & Culture
Meetings are held monthly at the clubhouse. We specialize in arts and crafts which are made at our meetings. We memorialize the history of the club by scrapbooking. Materials are provided by the department. Members are encouraged to enter their creations in the Palisades District Arts Achievement Day contest. All holiday decorations for the clubhouse are made by this department.
This department participates in the Paramus Earth Day celebration. The department recently attended a recycling workshop offered by the Paramus DPW. Information was brought back and shared with our membership regarding proper recycling techniques. The beautification of the clubhouse landscaping is our project for this fall in conjunction with a Paramus Eagle Scout project.
