ORIGIN

At a Christmas Luncheon and installation of officers, held on December 14, 1976, outgoing President Anna Nitschman gave a speech, wherein she stated that, "on April 17, 1975 a total of 14 of us got together for an informal meeting to start our club, and today we have 68 members.
Some of the original 14 members were:
  1. Ada Bowker
  2. Wendel Flesh
  3. Harriett Heisler
  4. Ada Innocenzi
  5. Lena McCue
  6. Anna Nitschman - President
  7. Helen Pieslak
  8. John Radler
  9. Theresa Radler
  10. Lena Scaccetti
  11. Mildred Taylor
  12. Warren Taylor

Meeting Places
As the club grew, the meeting sites changed. Members met in the Municipal Building, the American Legion, the Community Room in the Bank of Mid-Jersey, the Derby Fire House, different churches and individual homes.
Certificate of Incorporation
On July 29, 1980 our club obtained a Certificate of Incorporation. This allowed the club to proceed to try to obtain $1,000 from a Federal Grant for the Senior Club.
New Senior Citizen's Center
At a business meeting held on June 7, 1993, Joseph Camarda mentioned that the Township was working on obtaining a grant to erect a Senior Citizen's Center. George Hanuschik and David Rein attended many meetings and reported the progress to our Club. The Township was awarded a Small City Grant in the amount of $400,000 on June 9, 1995. A Bond ordinance for construction was awarded in the amount of $294,000, ground-breaking ceremony took place on September 26, 1996, and our new building was erected on August 29, 1997.
Presently, meetings are held the first and third Mondays of the month. The first Monday meeting is a Buisness meeting and the third Monday Meeting is a Social meeting. Both of these meetings are followed by bingo and card games. At times, entertainment or a guest speaker is provided. 
Membership
Any resident of Bordentown Township is eligible for membership. Our membership has grown from 14 members in 1975 to 203 in 2013. The dues were $2.00/year in 1978, and are now $5.00 a year in 2013. 
Charitable Activities
Our seniors make charity a year-round priority. Angel Sauro, Confidential Aide to the Mayor for Bordentown Township, and Eve Ziegler organize many projects. If our Center is aware of a need, it does its best to fill that need. 
Many medical facilities throughout South Jersey request bingo prizes and wrapped gifts so they can distribute them among their patients when needed. Seniors who attend craft classes, donate many items, as well as money for projects. All other times they have donated material, supplies and their time crocheting lap robes and slippers for hospital bounds. They have
sewn stuffed dogs, which they donate to the fire and police departments to be given to children they find in distress.

Bordentown Township Senior Citizens reach out to Community

 

The Bordentown Township senior Citizens Group collected 40 book bags for the children at Peter Muschal School that are in need of school supplies this year. They started in January with collecting an item a month up to August. They filled each bag with notebooks, rulers, pencils, scissors, crayons and so much more. The month of August is when they buy the book bags to place collected school supply items in to deliver. Many club members give donations for this charity outreach.

The delivery was on August 22, 2013. Three seniors were there to donate the adorable filled book bags that day. Their names are Mae Hamilton, Carol Panella and Charlotte Bullecks . The book bags were well warmly received by the Assistant Principal Robin Blue.
