"Affairs of the Heart" - The costs and rewards of doing the work one was meant to do
Presented by members Connie Goddard and Marian Wattenbarger, we will consider the lives and accomplishments of two extraordinary women who, incidentally, share two names.
Growing up in different eras and places – Jim Crow New Jersey and South Carolina as the Civil Rights Movement got underway respectively – Marion Thompson Wright (1902 - 1962) and Marian Wright Edelman (b. 1939) faced challenges common to all women who sought to define themselves and their roles long before that became a norm.

As February is American Heart (Health) Month as well as Black History Month, members attending the meeting are asked to wear red as a nod to the American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women” campaign with its message that heart disease is not only a man’s problem. We will also hear brief remarks from a healthcare professional about maintaining a healthy heart.

Annual Interbranch Meeting-Hosted by Northern Ocean County Branch
Trish Chambers Productions presents – “Flappers – Women of the 1920’s” in period costume

It was a period of American history that drove significant changes in how society perceived and accepted women. It was also a time of meteoric growth for our country and its women. The presentation discusses the emergence of American women from the demure Gibson Girl to the flashy Flapper. Also discussed are the impacts of WWI on society, the influences of literature, movies and art on how women were perceived and the fashion of the time.

Branch Co-President Pat Miller and her husband Steve, trained Climate Reality Leaders, will provide dramatic photo and video examples of the impact of climate change, steps that are being taken to counter these impacts, and why the future (still) looks very hopeful. Former Vice President Al Gore conducted the 3-day training in which Pat and Steve were immersed. Whether you are a “believer,” a “denier,” or an “undecided,” this is a rich presentation to enhance your understanding of extreme weather events, the spread of disease, and health effects of changes in air and water quality.
