The Women of High Bridge aim to strengthen community engagement by amplifying the voices of women, pioneering new ideas, and unifying generations past, present, and future for the cultural prosperity of High Bridge.
The Women for High Bridge is a group of women who are dedicated to participating, planning, brainstorming, etc. for the betterment of our community. We encourage women to join our group, we welcome their talents and ideas. All are welcome to join us as we continue the history of a Women's Organization in High Bridge.
Our focus as a group is to bring community members together through many diverse events that are meaningful, beneficial and fun. We bring all of our ideas to fruition because if they were important enough for one person to come up with the idea, we know they are important to others in our community.
Many of our community committees and groups have come together to bring you what will be a spectacular Halloweekend of events. We welcome you to join us for one or ALL of our fun events. Mark your calendars now for this jam-packed schedule of events Friday, October 28- Monday, October 31. (Further details on each event can be found on this page).
