created by the husband and wife team of Frank and Anne Hummert.

Dallas and a member of Lambertville's Kalmia Club.

Kalmia Club. The Lambertville Station is donating the venue and
crudités. A cash bar will be available. Proceeds from ticket
sales will be donated to local charities.

to providing opportunities for education, leadership, and community
service to its members. The oldest continuously running women's
club in New Jersey, Kalmia Club is a member of the NJ State Federation
of Women's Clubs and the General Federation of Women's Clubs.
