It's hard to believe, but we're well into our 17th year of continuous operation. I hope everyone has had an opportunity to read our Spring Newsletter.

Our 2nd fundraising event of 2017 is our April 29th All You Can Eat Beefsteak Dinner, to be held once again at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Mountain Lakes (see announcement in top of center column of this page.

On May 22nd we will once again be hosting our Annual Best of Chef's Dinner, to be held at The Mountain Lakes Club. If you've attended in the past, you know that your in for a gourmet treat.

If this will be your first time attending, you'll have an opportunity to sample the gourmet treats of many area restaurants.

Our children asked me to thank all of our wonderful donors and volunteers who've made it possible for them to have a safe, productive and fun afterschool home for another year.

We have another great group of kids, and we've added four new students recently, bringing us within two of our maximum of forty students.

I'm particularly delighted to have so many wonderful kindergarten students. We love caring for, helping guide and supporting all of our children, but kindergarteners are especially close to my heart.

New Sewing Center

Last fall we made a major addition to our after school program with the opening of a major, new facility and program.

Thanks to Don Ginty's generous donation, we now have eight, brand new Brother sewing machines.

Thanks also to Don's wife, Joan Ginty, New York City fashion designer, our students are receiving outstanding instruction.

The Cedar Hill CDC Sewing Center has been in operation since early fall of last year.

Joan's friend, Terri Setteducato has been assisting her in the training program. So far, only our girls have signed up for the program.

As the program continues, our girls will be making more involved garments to proudly wear and show to their John Hill classmates.

Our Volunteers

We owe a great deal of thanks to our many student and adult volunteers since our programs began more than 17 years ago

It would be impossible for us to function, and provide the enriching environment and learning skills that are so beneficial to our children's development, without the dedicated support of our wonderful volunteers.

We encourage you to get to know our Volunteers, our former student Junior Mentors and a wonderful group of Mountain Lakes High School Students of the Big Brothers Big Sisters Organization.
