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.

A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara

A Little Life follows four college classmates—broke, adrift, and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition—as they move to New York in search of fame and fortune. While their relationships, which are tinged by addiction, success, and pride, deepen over the decades, the men are held together by their devotion to the brilliant, enigmatic Jude, a man scarred by an unspeakable childhood trauma. A hymn to brotherly bonds and a masterful depiction of love in the twenty-first century, Hanya Yanagihara’s stunning novel is about the families we are born into, and those that we make for ourselves.

Our Grants chair will announce the recipients of our Community Grants, and you will enjoy knowing that your hard work benefitted so many great organizations.

On the menu is ‘Friendship Salad.’

  • We start with a big bowl of greens, and luncheon guests bring an item to contribute to the salad.
  • What do you like in your salad? Chicken, shrimp, nuts/berries, cottage cheese, croutons, eggs, legumes . . .?
  • Altogether it makes for a bountiful plate, with just enough space left for dessert.

The Magician’s Assistant by Ann Patchett

When Parsifal, a handsome and charming magician, dies suddenly, his widow Sabine—who was also his faithful assistant for twenty years—learns that the family he claimed to have lost in a tragic accident is very much alive and well. Sabine is left to unravel his secrets, and the journey she takes, from sunny Los Angeles to the bitter windswept plains of Nebraska, will work its own magic on her. Sabine’s extraordinary tale, “with its big dreams, vast spaces, and disparate realities lying side by side” captures the hearts of its readers and “proves to be the perfect place for miraculous transformations.”
