Tricia Martin Wallace and Sharon Paton plan MWC Banquet at Bald Peak
June is around the corner and the Moultonborough Women's Club is planning their annual banquet and installation of officers and directors. Members always look forward to this event and is being chaired by Tricia Martin Wallace and Sharon Paton, who are wizards at getting things done. A luncheon choice of grilled Atlantic salmon or Cobb salad is offered to the 56 members, who have reservations. A social begins at 11 a.m. followed by luncheon at 12:30. A wonderful opportunity to visit the ever popular resort and enjoy their views, gardens and delicious food.
Deb Kumpf is willing to serve another year as President as well as Amy Corston as Vice President., along with Sue Reepmeyer as Reccording Secretary, Leslie Angelo as Corresponding Secretary and Kathy Garry as Treasurer. Three new Directors: Libby Reichlen, Harriet Bicksler and Janet Moe. The lovely, meaningful installation ceremony will be performed by Parliamentarian Dotti Simpson.
The Scholarship committee is ready to award $7000 to deserving students and this was accomplished by holding several fund raising events. Such as a Kentucky Derby Party held in early May and recently a family community Yard Sale took place to add to the scholarship fund. In July, a bake sale in conjunction with the Moultonborough Library's huge book sale is an annual event. MWC is a service club and Moultonborough and neighboring communities are most helpful in their generosity and support.

This is a first Derby Party for MWC and is a huge challenge for organizers Eloise Post and Carol Bamberry. Not much fazes these ladies, who often chair huge events to enhance our scholarship coffers and donate to other worthy causes. They, with a large committee of dedicated, eclectic group have been meeting weekly to make lovely table decorations and plan games to play before the Derby begins. Background music will play until the games are over, than dancing takes over.
