The Kellogg Club relies heavily on financial contributions as well as personal time commitments to various events throughout the year. The Gala is the highlight of our social events and is the most important fundraiser of the year.
In keeping with the spirit of giving back to the community, a portion of the Gala’s proceeds is donated to a local charity. The Kellogg Club began this tradition in 2012.
The Kellogg Club has donated to the following organizations:
2012 – The Morristown Community Soup Kitchen
2013 – Homeless Solutions
2014 – Cornerstone
2015 – Deirdre’s House
2016 – Good Grief
2017 – The Valerie Fund
Since its inception in 1968, the Kellogg Club member volunteers have successfully preserved the oldest Greek revival mansion in Morristown while creating a social environment and contributing to the community.
In the spirit of the Kellogg Club’s founders, the member volunteers maintain and improve the mansion and the surrounding grounds in various ways funded strictly through annual member fees and fundraising efforts.
Over the years, from remodeling the bathrooms and kitchen to externally painting the mansion, the volunteer members continue to make improvements.
This year’s accomplishments include:
- We finished the installation of lighting of the front stairs and entrance way. These lights at the front entrance and light posts mid-walkway will address a much needed gap in lighting from the mansion to our front sidewalk. This culminates our front entrance work that included new Mahogany front stairs, railing, and tying in the new slates from the sidewalk to the front of the house.
- Internally, we moved our attention to some much needed clean up in our basement, and we will be building shelving to support our archiving project and re-furbishing the Poker Room. This room has been in long need of a cleanup and will feature new walls, floors, recessed lighting and a fresh coat of paint.
- We kick off this coming month with the East Garden Project, which is the area before you enter the pool yard. This will include some wonderful new plantings and nice additions to the garden that will expand our pool footprint and provide more activities for our membership to enjoy throughout the summer months.
