BONSALL – The leadership abilities of Mary Jo Pfaff and her dedication to the Bonsall Woman's Club was very evident when she accepted the position of president for the 2022-23 term. While she was serving on the BWC Board of Directors as corresponding secretary, she volunteered to chair the 2021 Annual Christmas Fundraiser. This was a three day successful community event. At the same time, she was chair of the club's Charitable Donations Committee.
When Pfaff first joined the club in 1997, she was the Bonsall School Liaison reporting school activities at the BWC monthly meetings. She chaired the "Girl of the Year" event honoring one girl from grades 5 and 8. They received gifts and were invited to ride in the Fallbrook Christmas Parade representing the BWC.
In 2003, she joined the Foundation for Senior Care Board of Directors. Along with her friend, Teddie Borges, she spearheaded the formation of the Adult Day Care known as "The Club." They pursued the licensing and created the programs that are still actively helping families in the community.
Pfaff and husband, Steve, moved to Bonsall in 1991. Their four children attended our local schools and went on to colleges across the country. As a graduate from Marquette University with a degree in Physical Therapy, she worked for Fallbrook Hospital in the Home Health Department.
After 47 years as a P.T., she retired. Her last employment was the Palomar Hospital Home Health. In 2010, she received "Employee of the year" for Home Health, regional area #8, when Fallbrook Hospital was under Community Health Services of Tennessee.
As president of the Bonsall Woman's Club, Mary Jo Pfaff has chosen the following theme: "Philanthropy, Friendship and Fun while Fundraising."
