The Oradell Book & Needle Club was founded in 1915 as an organization committed to community improvement, through volunteering and service. Even after 103 years, these incredible women have remained steadfast in pursuit of their goals.

Most indicative of this quality, is their recent decision to make CASA the focus of their Special State Project. The club hosts several charity and philanthropic events throughout the year. So, over the next 2 or so years, a portion of all their proceeds will go towards Court Appointed Special Advocates. Project Chair Person Marie Woke, will be leading the charge to support CASA.

To coincide with this project, the club graciously invited representatives from Bergen County CASA to come visit, speak, and spread their message.

Before the presentation began, the club treated both, Case Supervisor Lucy Rosen and PR/Marketing Specialist Connor Moriarty, to a lovely luncheon at Sear House in Closter, NJ. After enjoying the club’s terrific hospitality, Lucy began her presentation.

As per usual, the club was shown the short film Re-Moved. Similarly, the members all responded to the emotionally charged screening with enthusiastic questions and poignant comments. Once again, Bergen CASA has found an incredible group of ambassadors who are now more than ready to spread awareness about who CASA is as well as the work that they do.

As an exciting follow-up to this event, the Book & Needle Club will be joining forces with the Oradell Public Library Foundation in order to promote Author John Hall’s new book, Drink Beer, Think Beer: Getting to the Bottom of Every Pint.

Dates, times, and information on how to buy tickets are provided on the ad below. Proceeds go towards Court Appointed Special Advocates.
