The Moultonborough Women’s Club shows appreciation to much admired Chef Donna Grow

Once a year, the Moultonborough Women’s Club remembers to present Chef Donna Grow with either gift certificates or a monetary gift for the outstanding meals she and her ever talented, well trained culinary team that prepares delightful, nutrition, meals whenever MWC has a meeting at the Moultonborough Function Hall. We know how very lucky we are to have such a devoted, well known chef among our midst and this is but a small way to show our appreciation. Thank you Donna for your hard work that results in great planned meals. Your the BEST!

Speaker Anni Jakobsen with MWC member Sherry Weene

The Moultonborough Women’s club enjoyed a gorgeous day just before the big snow storm that followed. Attendance was good with 55 to enjoy a heart warming delightful roast pork luncheon prepared by Chef Donna Grow and her well trained culinary team. Hmm, the succulent pork, gravy and mashed potatoes were the very best on a cold January day. The renowned dessert ladies didn’t disappoint either and had some unique, tempting desserts to offer. A delicious decadent chocolate cake, banana bread, zucchini bread, all sorts of cookies and tarts and a large bowl of fresh fruit. All calorie free and presented by: Tricia Martin Wallace, Sue Bacon, Carol Bamberry, Janet Schurko, Mal Merrill, Gayle Russell, Linda Fosburg, Mary Fowler-Huston with Nancy McDonough and Sharon Paton on coffee.


Member Sherry Weene introduced Anni Jaskobsen, who resides in Moultonborough to speak on “Using Neurofeedback in treatment”. Something new Is happening to improve lives and Anni gave us the latest information using a new method on treating PTSD , anxiety and depression with the help of neurofeedback. She demonstrated how one would use the NeurOptial brain training session that records the electrical activity of your brain. The Q and A was lively showing much interest. Anni hopes to start a new business soon using this neurofeedback treatment that she has been involved with for the past ten years in CT.

President Deb Kumpf was pleased with the huge amount of items members donated to Starting Point, who provide services for victims of domestic and sexual violence. They always appreciate our donation.  Mil Toczko, Historian and Publicity chair had a scrapbook of news articles on display as well as to old photo albums dating back to 1992. It was fun recognizing old photos of members.  Ad Hoc activities: Some of our members have been enjoying winter walks, some snowshoeing, others play Mah Jong or bridge weekly at the Rec. center. Please feel free to join in.

Amy Corston, Vice President of the Moultonborough Women’s Club and Mary Lou Charron help decorate a donated tree to the Altrusa Festival of Trees. The theme this year was “ Birds of a Feather Gather Together”. Each week they joined others to decorate all handmade birds, birdhouses, bird nests and the like.  Eloise Post and Janet Schurko were the leaders organizing the group to help their Altrusa neighbor, which is known for their good work with public service projects.

This is the seventh year MWC has donated a decorated Christmas tree that will go to a needy family with kids. It all began when Carol Bamberry, then MWC President decided MWC should lend a helping hand to our neighbor the Altrusa Club and it has continued.
