Tree Dedication for Jane Stanwood 6/2/19
June 2, 2019 was very special. Our moms' club, along with the community, joined together to celebrate the late Jane Stanwood-- wife, mother, librarian and moms club member, with a lovely tree dedication right outside the Galloway Library where she worked. Father Tom blessed the beautiful weeping redbud tree, Mayor Coppola proclaimed the day in her name and Club President, Melissa J. Collesano expressed Jane's importance in the community and as a mother of three. Vice President, Anneliese Hartz took a moment to read a poem so very fitting for Jane's immediate family but as we looked around we could see her family was made up of so many more.
We thank Galloway Library for the beautiful tree plaque and Galloway Nursery for the tree itself. A loving hug to Hap Stanwood (Galloway resident) and his children, William, Matt and Laura, for giving our club their blessing to see this through. Hap, you are a wonderful father and it's admirable seeing you share the values you set with Jane, with your children still today. They are her legacy💖
We are a better community because of the good people in it and Jane was one of them. "May her memory bloom on forever"

"Moms Club gives back supermarket gift card Ambush"
AC PRESS, LAUREN CARROLL Staff Writer
Dec 25, 2017
For nearly 30 years, the Moms Club of Absecon and Galloway has been a social club. But in 2017, the club not only opened membership to mothers of all ages, but it also began giving back with good deeds in the community.
President Melissa Collesano and members bought grocery store gift cards to give parents and caretakers in ShopRite stores: “We give it to a mom or parent that seems like they need it. Maybe they have a young baby or a cart full of groceries for a large family.”
