Westfield Area Y's Men's Club
Founded in 1947, the Westfield Area Y's Men's Club is a group of men from Westfield, Cranford, Mountainside, Garwood, Clark, Fanwood, Scotch Plains, Union and Summit who participate in various community service projects. Describing themselves as fun-loving, handy, hard-working and containing the spirit of volunteerism, the group meets monthly to plan and participate in various projects, with social meetings held monthly as well.
The Club hosts an annual Christmas Tree Sale, which averages more than 1,600 trees sold per year. The group has worked on such projects as reseeding the Elm Street field across from the Board of Education Headquarters and the construction of the September 11th Memorial on North Avenue. The group donates both labor and administrative support to various projects. The club has an annual pig roast, and provides grants to community organizations. Business meetings are held at the YMCA on Clark Street, and dinner meetings are held at local restaurants. Business meetings are on the second Wednesday of the month, with dinner meetings on the fourth Wednesday. Following meetings, the group usually repairs to the Jolly Trolley for a post-mortem.
