MWC members all set to sell home baked goods
A terrific Friday night storm of hard rain brought a bright, brisk, sunny Saturday just in time for the Moultonborough Women's Club annual July bake sale in conjunction with the fabulous, Moultonborough Library book sale. The community looks forward to this great event with people coming from all over to search for their favorite author or look for new ones, The MWC bake sale is always popular and home baked treats were plentiful with new goods brought in during the day. Favorites such as fruit pies and strawberry treats sold out fast.
There was a huge variety of cookies, several variations of brownies, decorated cup cakes and all kinds of mouth watering desserts. Thanks to Louise O'Donald and Mary Whiting for chairing this successful event. Thanks to the town who supports MWC in cooperation and generosity. This past June MWC awarded $8,000 in scholarships to students and one adult. Proceeds of this bake sale will be used to fund scholarships for our talented local students. Women working together in unison can accomplish miracles. History shows that so far over the years MWC has awarded $168,350 in scholarships.

Scholarship chair Carole O'Hara with recipient Moultonborough Librarian Ann Marie Welch
The Moultonborough Women's Club recently awarded seven scholarships totaling $8,000. These scholarships are offered to students living in Moultonborough or to adults wanting to further their education.
MWC was quite happy to award a $1,000 scholarship to a Moultonorough librarian Ann Marie Welch. who is completing an online Master's degree in Library and Information Science. Ann Marie has a degree from the University of North Texas and will use it to advance in her chosen profession, which she loves. Scholarships have been the on going pet project of MWC since 1960, which began with a small $100 scholarship. Over the years the amount has grown and currently totals an impressive amount of $168,350. Amazing the capability of a determined women's service club, whose membership now reaches 130.

This past year our Scholarship Committee was led by Carole O'Hara and other eager, conscientious, thoughtful women such as:
Judy Ballard, Jean Beadle, Sue Brown, Donna Conway, Louise O'Donald, Barbara Perry, Libby Reichlen and Mary Whiting. These ladies worked hard raising money all year accumulating $8,000 to award. Following graduation, awards were presented at the popular venue of Geneva Point. These students received the following awards: Mikayla Rossetti $1,000, Gwen Fifield $1,000, Brittany Delaney $1,000, Jordan Burrows $2,000, Sam Cantone $1,000, Valedictorian Eric Dubois $1,000. Moultonborough librarian Ann Marie Welch also received a $1,000 scholarship to further her education.
Each year the Moultonborough Women's Club Scholarship Committee has some tough decisions to make. With college tuition being an expensive burden on families, MWC saw the need for scholarships as far back as 1960, after giving a loan to a student for $50. Yes, a loan not a scholarship. Seeing the need and being a service club MWC started to award a $100 scholarship each year. As the years rolled by and the club increased in size they were able to award $500 scholarships. By 1977, with hard work and dedication they raised the amount awarded to two $1,000 scholarships. And, so it went. Now another $8,000 was added to our last total and we now can currently boast of our scholarship totals an amazing $168,350 over the years.
