Monday, March 4, 2013 • 8:15pm
For March, the Thursday Morning Club has scheduled two events for club members plus a lunch open to the public on Friday, March 22.
The club will sponsor its own “Antiques Road Show” after its general meeting at 10 am Thursday, March 7, at the Madison Community House, 25 Cook Avenue. Carol Cruickshank of the Rago Arts Center, Lambertville will be on hand to appraise one work of art from each member. Cruickshank is an expert in print material including paintings, drawings, posters, images in books, prints and all media.
Diana Roberts, chairwoman of Arts/Creative Department, is encouraging all club members to begin their ‘search for that treasure’ by considering the miniature purchased at a garage sale or removing a painting from the wall. “Don’t second guess Uncle Harry’s framed scribble, just bring it in,” she said. “Some treasure that the family designated as important may actually turn out to be real,” she said.
Following the program, a lunch prepared by the Catering Department of the club will be served. The cost is $15 payable at the door; members should reserve in advance.
Next, the Thursday Morning Club and the Hopatcong Women’s Club will co-host the “Highlands District Arts/Performing Day” at 10 am Wednesday, March 13, at the Community House. Members from all of the women’s clubs in the district will show off their talents, from singing and dance to readings and skits. The Thursday Morning Club is a member of both the New Jersey State and General Federation of Women’s Clubs.
The club’s annual Spring Luncheon Benefit will be held Friday, March 22, at The Westin Governor Morris, 2 Whippany Road, Morristown. The doors will open at 10:30 am, and lunch will be served at noon. “Tickets for lovely baskets and gifts obtained through members’ donations will be available,” said Bernie Grohol, chairwoman of the event. The cast of the Madison High School Spring Musical will perform songs from its production of Meredith Wilson’s ‘The Music Man.’
The luncheon, which will benefit the Madison Community House, is open to the public. The admission fee of $50 includes lunch and entertainment. Checks can be mailed to and made payable to “TMC, Spring Luncheon” P.O. Box 345, Madison, NJ 07940. Cancelled checks will serve as a receipt; tickets will not be mailed.
