The Moultonborough Women's Club sends special thanks to the citizens of Moultonborough and surrounding towns for their generosity in supporting their annual recent Scholarship Bake Sale, which was a huge success. The event was held in conjunction with the Moultonborough Public Library's huge Book Sale. MWC is most grateful to the library for their cooperation in allowing the bake sale on the same busy important day. Tenacious organizers Louise O'Donald and Barbara Palmer took charge of receiving and selling baked goods, which arrived thru out the day. $7000, was recently awarded to local students and since keeping score for several years, we have awarded a total of $182,350 in scholarships. Yes, it does take a village and community support. Mary Lou Charron will head up the Scholarship Fund in the fall.

The Moultonborough Women's Club annual July bake sale will be held Saturday, July 7, in conjunction with the Moultonborough Public Library's annual, huge well known book sale. Deepest thanks go to the library in allowing MWC to hold a bake sale on their premises. This alone shows community care and compassion between the two groups.
Mary Lou Charron, chairperson of Scholarship has announced that Louise O'Donald and Barbara Palmer will be in charge of the bake sale and plan to be there early to set up and have coffee and muffins ready by 8:00 for early book browsers. Other enthusiastic volunteers scheduled that day are: Susan Doherty-Funke, Janet Moe, Joanne Wilhelm. Later, Nancy McDonough and Valerie Durland will arrive to help and Mary Lou Charron plans to be there all day. Fresh baked items will be arriving during the day and members promise to have many of the old favorites. Fruit pies are always very popular and fly off the shelf. An assortment of cakes, all kinds of cookies, cup cakes, and of course a huge variety of brownies. Zucchini bread is in season along with fresh strawberry desserts. Gluten free items and some sugar free desserts will also be featured.
Bake sales play an integral part in raising money for scholarships. Recently MWC awarded $7,000 in scholarships to local students. We need to begin filling our exhausted coffers once again to get started for next season. Proceeds from this bake sale will go directly into the Scholarship Fund. Have fun looking for some good summer reading and bring home a nice sweet treat for the family. MWC is a service cub and work diligently with the community for successful results.

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.
