Community Starts Here!

The Town Club of Mountain Lakes was established in 1959 with a mission to build and maintain a strong community.  Fifty five years later – we’re still doing exactly that.  We are a social club that welcomes newcomers and provides daytime and evening events where residents can get to know one another.  At the same time we’re a philanthropic organization that raises over $25K a year to grant to local organizations in need of a helping hand.

Get to know us.  A strong Town Club is at the very heart of a strong
Mountain Lakes community.

 Below you will find highlights of past and future events.  Please click through for more information.  We meet the 2nd Thursday of every month, alternating between daytime and evening meetings.  Join us.

White Dresses: A Memoir of Love and Secrets, Mothers and Daughters by Alice Hoffman

A poignant memoir of three generations of women and the white dresses that adorned them

As a successful journalist at Good Morning America, Mary Pflum Peterson’s persona is at odds with her complicated childhood, where she watched her brilliant yet emotionally vulnerable mother, Anne, unravel before her eyes.

Wild by Cheryl Strayed

At twenty-two, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother’s death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life. With no experience or training, driven only by blind will, she would hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State — and she would do it alone.

Told with suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.
