Welcome to the Porch Club of Riverton

New Porch Club PicThe Porch Club of Riverton is a non-profit association founded in 1890 for the purpose of inspiring, encouraging, educating and bettering its membership and the global community. A socially and civically engaged group, The Porch Club is one of the country’s first organized women’s clubs, a member of the New Jersey Federation of Women’s Clubs, and the General Federation of Women’s Clubs. Since its inception over one hundred years ago, the Porch Club’s purpose has been to serve as a center for social, civic and cultural enrichment and change. Today, our dynamic and vibrant membership continues that tradition – promoting camaraderie, exchanging ideas, keeping our hearts and minds open to new experiences, and employing our diverse talents and creativity to raise both awareness and funding for the causes and charities we support.

An Opportunity to Help Out

Bridget Elmes, a resident of Palmyra, a participant in this the Porch Club’s 2016 Garden Tour, and a Porch Club applicant is fighting Stage 4 aggressive metastatic breast cancer.  She is a single mother with two boys who owns a successful landscape design and garden business but obviously cannot work while going thru cancer treatment.  A Go Fund Me page has been set up to raise money to help with expenses and to support her children through this very difficult time. Please consider making a donation to ease her worries a bit so she can focus on beating this dreaded disease.
