What’s New with CJWC: (from Facebook)

September's monthly club meeting has always been bitter sweet for me and my Club Sisters. Tonight we get to hear about the AMAZING work being done throughout the County by Non-Profits, and their selfless, tireless staff. Having said that, hearing from 20-30 agencies as they come to make a pitch for Santa's Workshop monies - 11/18 to 11/20, and knowing we can only help about half of them just tears you up. I've not been able to sit through one of these without shedding a few tears.
