The Women's Connection of Northern N.J. is dedicated to serving women of all ages and walks of life. We host brunch events every other month on the "evens." These events include feature presentations of interesting topics, local talent and a motivational speaker to "jump start" your day!
As our name suggests, our organization is for all women in the Northern New Jersey area. Our events are catered by Zeris Inn, conveniently located on NJ-Route 46 in Mountain Lakes with easy access on and off Interstate 80.
We are affiliated with Stonecroft Ministries, Inc., a non-denominational outreach organization. Stonecroft maintains over 1,100 groups like ours in the USA, and is actively involved in over 60 countries globally. For more information about our parent organization, visit them at their website, www.stonecroft.org

Our August 18, 2010, Teacher Appreciation brunch was featured on the front page of the Morris County Daily Record. To read the article, go to our "In the News" tab at the top of this page. To see photos from our 2012 Award brunch, take a look at our new photo album.
Check out our photo album! These lovely pictures were taken at our venue, The Villa at Mountain Lakes, during our "Secrets of a Master Chef" brunch. Executive Chef Joanna DeFrancesco was invited to divulge her tips and tricks in the kitchen, speaker Gina Lang taught us how to "wade successfully through the waves of life," and our new Chairperson Victoria was introduced. It was a fun day for everyone.
