Central Jersey Tall Friends Club is an
organization which promotes fun and friendship among tall adults.
Membership is open to anyone 21 or older, who meets the club's height
requirements. Women must be 5'10" or taller, and men must be
6'2" or taller. Prospective members must attend two CJTFC sponsored
events before applying for membership. Membership obligations include
yearly dues and involvement in club activities. The club sponsors many
social, cultural and athletic activities. Our dances are often the
social event of the season. We send out newsletters, either emailed or
snail mailed, informing members and prospects of club news and up coming
events. While most CJTFC members are from the central counties (Monmouth
Ocean and Middlesex) there are also members from Mercer, Union,
Hunterdon and Somerset in NJ, and Staten Island in NY.
Central Jersey Tall Friends Club members automatically become members of TALL CLUB INTERNATIONAL ( www.tall.org ) Founded in 1938, TCI was established with a goal of providing a social outlet for tall people. Today there are 65 clubs in the US and Europe. TCI members are welcome to attend Tall Club functions both locally and abroad. Tall Clubs International promotes tall awareness on various levels. runs a yearly convention (2007 in OR, 2008 in CA) selects a "Miss Tall International", awards scholarships to tall High School seniors, and raise funds for the National Marfan Foundation.
In 2007 CJTFC donated $1000 to the National Marfan Foundation after our fund raising dinner dance in April at the Manchester Inn, Ocean Grove. We also were able to award a local high school senior a scholarship, and nominated him for the Tall Club Internationals scholarship.
