The Hobbyists Unlimited is a non-profit, non-political and non-sectarian organization, which is sponsored by the First Presbyterian Church in Ridgewood, N.J. as a community service.
The club cultivates the activities and hobbies of retired and semi-retired men residing in Ridgewood and the surrounding area. Existing members sponsor candidates for new membership.
The Hobbyists Unlimited was founded in 1966 and over the years grew from 25 to over 440 Members.
The main purpose of the organization is to foster Fellowship among the members while enjoying the various hobbies and activities.
Members are invited to attend the monthly business meeting that, in addition to reports on our various activities, features a one hour presentation on a variety of topics from outside speakers.
The regular business meetings are held at 10 a.m., on the first Thursday of each month, except in July and August. Starting in 2010, January, February and March meetings will start at 1 p.m. The meetings are held at the First Presbyterian Church, Ridgewood.
