CC of HHK Member Spotlight: Monica Ashley

September 15, 2013By 2 Comments

Each month we’ll be highlighting a member of the Contemporary Club of Ho-Ho-Kus through a member profile here in the Blog section of our website.  These posts allow us to learn more about the women who comprise our club, providing a snapshot of their interests, family and life. You may discover that you worked at the same company or that you love the same restaurant for date night. Or you may be stumped by the “Two Truths and a Lie” final question. Enjoy!

Our first member profile of the 2013-14 year is of Monica Ashley, Social Services Board Member.

    We love Cafe Amici, too, with my son. He adores their chicken fingers and fries and I love their HHK Chopped Salad 🙂

    I’m going to guess that your “Lie” is that you witnessed a plane crash?

  2. Is that teacher retired now or will your kids have him or her too? 🙂
