PARSIPPANY — The Woman’s Club of Parsippany-Troy Hills will meet on Monday, February 26 at 7:00 p.m. at the Lake Parsippany Rescue & Recovery Building, 100 Centerton Drive. The club is a great group of women of all ages and walks of life committed to volunteerism and service to the community.

After a short business meeting, Don MacGowan, Volunteer Program Coordinator from The Seeing Eye in Morristown will be the guest speaker. Established in 1929, The Seeing Eye provides specially bred and trained dogs to guide people who are blind. Seeing Eye dog users experience greatly enhanced mobility and independence, allowing them to retain their active lifestyles despite blindness. Mr. MacGowan oversees the Community Outreach Program for The Seeing Eye. He will be bringing “George”, a ten-year old Golden Retriever with him to assist him in his speaking engagement!

The Woman’s Club of Parsippany-Troy Hills is a member of the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs of GFWC (NJSFWC), which is the largest volunteer women’s service organization in the state, providing opportunities for education, leadership training, and community service.    For more information call Cathy at (973) 984-0758, e-mail the club at womansclubofpth@gmail.com  or click here to view website.
