Brookside Community Club

I just renewed my annual membership with the Brookside Community Club in Brookside, NJ (part of Mendham Township, near the Mendham Township Elementary School).

The Brookside Community Club puts on a number of annual events for Mendham Township families, including:
  • Mendham Juniors Easter Egg Hunt in the Community Club Field, usually scheduled for the Saturday morning before Easter;
  • Annual Brookside Fourth of July Parade;
  • Family Clam Bake, usually scheduled around Labor Day. This year the Brookside Family Clam Bake will be held on Saturday, September 6, 2008 at 1:00pm

The Brookside Community Club has been a gathering place for Mendham Township residents since 1923, which means that this year (2008) marks the 85th anniversary since the Community Club held Brookside's first Fourth of July Parade in 1923. The Community Club accomodates non-profit organizations and sports groups for their fundraisers and dinners. Local women and men have used the Brookside Community Club over the years to attend classes in Ballroom Dancing, Tango Dancing, Yoga and Aerobics.

There's a $35 minimum for membership. Members can reserve the Brookside Community Club for private events (birthday parties, bridal showers, weddings, etc.). Phone: (973) 543-5637.
