North Jersey Navy League is a recognized non-profit organization under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions are tax deductible as otherwise provided by law.
Welcome to the North Jersey Council Website. Most of our members reside in north and northwest New Jersey area. The council was originally founded as the Bergen/Passaic Council on May 14, 1973. In 2002 the Liberty Bay Council was merged with and became part of what is now the North Jersey Council. Today the Council has over 300 members.
We have programs and special activities which help to support the men and women of our United States Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and Merchant Marine and provide information and programs to educate our community about the importance of sea power to our nation's national defense and continued well being. We have adopted ships/units in the New York and New Jersey area, which give us an opportunity to provide direct, hands-on support to the men and women who work for our freedom.
"It seems to me that all good Americans interested in the growth of their country and sensitive to its honor, should give hearty support to the policies which the Navy League is founded to further. For the building and maintaining
in proper shape of the American Navy, we must rely on nothing but the broad and farsighted patriotism of our people as a whole." Teddy Roosevelt
It is important to our community and the nation to support our initiatives. This is achieved through support of youth programs such as Jersey City Division of the Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Passaic High School NJROTC and Passaic County Technical Institute and other endeavors at our local schools and organizations.
You will enjoy the camaraderie of our members as we work together to fulfill the mission of the Navy League and to simply enjoy each other's company in different social settings. The North Jersey Council meets on the first Monday of most months except in September we meet the second Monday due to the Labor Day holiday. Currently we do not have meetings in July and August.
The meetings take place at the Bonfire Restaurant, 999 Market Street, Paterson, NJ. There is a cash bar starting at 6:00 and dinner at 7:00. The cost is $25.00 per person paid at the door. At each meeting you will not only have the opportunity to get to know other members of our council and enjoy a great meal, but we have a fantastic variety of guest speakers.
