On December 9th, DJWC had a successful fundraiser at Breakfast with Santa at the Dedham Community House. With the generosity of the families attending, we were able to raise $64. This money will be sent to Heifer International’s-Tanzania School Milk Project and the UN sponsored, Shot@Life. Thank you to all those who helped.
The International Committee thanks all who supported Heifer Project fundraiser https://heifer.org at the DJWC Craft Fair in fall 2018. We are especially grateful to the Dedham merchants who provided the prizes for the first and second place winners’ baskets: Caffé Tremezzo, El Centro, Blue Bunny, and the Dedham Square Coffeehouse.
We are pleased to announce the winners of the Heifer International baskets. The correct number of animal crackers in the container was 478. First prize went to Cathy Rich of Dedham who guessed the number 472. Second prize went to Mary Sheehy of West Roxbury who guessed the number 489.
We greatly appreciate all those that participated and supported Heifer International’s Tanzania School Milk Project. https://www.heifer.org/join-the-conversation/magazine/2018/spring/milk-does-student-body-good.html. As a result of the community’s generosity $203 will be sent to Heifer International.

The Dedham Junior Women’s Club Craft Fair is our most important fundraiser of the year. A great deal of effort goes into selecting high quality crafters and creating a fun shopping experience for the many patrons who look forward to this event each year. All funds raised at this event are donated back to the community.
The Craft Fair is a juried show with over 100 spaces filled by more than 80 artisans with lovely handcrafted items including jewelry, clothing, crafts, home decor, dried flowers, children’s items, food and more. Lunch and snacks are also available for purchase at the Cafe, and the Crafter’s Raffle is a very popular event. Admission is $5.00.
As a result of our club’s efforts focused around the Boston Book Festival, Dedham Junior Women’s Club has collected 462 books to be recirculated in the community.
On October 13th DJWC participated in the Boston Book Festival as an exhibitor supporting family literacy. An Unlikely Story Bookstore & Café paid our participation fee. At the end of the Boston Book Festival the winners of the DJWC raffles were selected. An impartial exhibitor from another booth drew the names of the raffle winners.
The winners are:
- 1st prize: Tour of Jeff Kinney’s studio – Colin Finkel
- 2nd prize: Set of Ten Diaries of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney—Renee Loeckler
The five winners of a copy of the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Meltdown are:
- Eli Bartholomew
- Anjuman Chowdhury
- Helen Liu
- Jenevieve Maerker
- Oliver Szervan
Congratulations to all the winners!
