Branch Meetings

Kathy Cortes introduced this year’s Women’s Scholarship winner, who shared her bio with us. In honor of the 100th anniversary of the passing of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, we played a Famous Women’s Trivia Activity based on the game “Two Truths and a Lie”. A screen was shared with information on the winners of our High School School Awards.  Thanks to Terri Hicks for Chairing this program. A short business meeting followed.

Our speaker was Barbara McMorrow, the former mayor of Freehold Township. She discussed “The Role of Women in Politics (non-partisan)”. A short business meeting followed.
