Well, actually not much going on at the Moultonborough Women’s Club due to the current Covid-19 pandemic. In the past, July’s yearly bake sale has always been a good, successful way to earn money for our scholarship fund. Not being able to congregate this summer, an enthusiastic committee thought of a “Calorie Free” bake sale through July 31, which is virtually no baked goods, just generous donations to add to our fund. We were able to award $7,000 in June in scholarships to 4 Moultonborough students., which depleted our coffers. This is a most difficult time to have a fund raiser. MWC President Amy Corston keeps all in touch with news and holds a Zoom board meeting once a month. The community can help by going to the following link- https/www.moultonboroughwomensclub.org/support. If your able, please send a check to the Moultonborough Women’s Club, P O Box 877, at Center Harbor, NH 03226. Yes, it’s Center Harbor. The community has always been supportive and most generous over the years and is greatly appreciated by MWC.

The current COVID19 pandemic has impacted so many organizations in various ways. The Moultonborough Women’s Club is no exception. One of our key focus areas is providing scholarships to Moultonborough students. Just recently we awarded $7000 to students bringing our scholarship awards over time to over $197,350!
Traditionally we raise the majority of our funds through the much-anticipated bake sales in which the Club members bake an amazing assortment of wonderful baked goods and the community responds by enjoying these treats and being extremely generous. Unfortunately, since the Moultonborough Library will not be holding their annual book sale we are unable to have our typical July bake sale. We will instead have a Calorie Free Bake Sale through July 31. What does that mean? The community can generously donate to the Club’s Scholarship Fund and it’s all calorie free!
How can you help? You can go to the following link - https:/www.moultonboroughwomensclub.org/support-us or send a check to the Moultonborough Women’s Club PO Box 877, Center Harbor, NH 03226 or send an email to email@example.com. Our community has been so supportive over time of all of our efforts, especially the Scholarship Fund, and we appreciate your continued generosity!

President Amy Corston of the Moultonborough Women’s Club was very happy to announce the following students have been selected to receive scholarships for the 20-21 college year. Recipients are:
Noah Robinson $2,000, Katie Duddy $2,000, Charles Anderson $2,000 and Allison Taylor $1,000.
They will be presented their scholarships by the principal Mr. Coppinger during a virtual presentation the week of June 1st. This is the very first time MWC has used a scholarship virtual presentation. Because of Covid-19 and social distancing a group photo may not be taken for some time. This year the $7,000, awarded brings the total donated throughout the years to $197,350. This was made possible by several bake sales, sandwich sale, yard sales, and galas with silent auctions and many diverse ways to raise funds. The hard working members on the Scholarship Committee are: Co-chairs Mary Lou Charron and Donna Conway, with outstanding help from: Judy Ballard, Jean Beadle, Sue Noyes , Louise O’Donald, Barbara Palmer, Libby Reichlen, Dotti Simpson and Mary Whiting.
Now with Covid-19 it's most difficult to raise money. We are not able to have gatherings. We had several big things planned in the wings and had to abolish the planning and execution. Everything is at a standstill. Only time and the future will tell.

Moultonborough Women’s Club working on Adopt- A -Spot this season. Volunteers shown here: Mary Dominguez, Debbie Wiacek, Hettie Buck, Lee Bane, and Tracy Webster-Babcock
Leader Barb Koehler had a great response for help, with 5 new volunteers, in helping the Adopt-A-Spot this year; however, little could be done right now. They spent about an hour on preparation; wore masks and stayed a distance by dividing up the plot for each person. They were good workers, but not having water, put off adding more plants. They did weed, rake up, and feed the plants. The Moultonborough Women’s Club has always helped in beautifying the town in several different ways. In 2011, they answered the town’s call to Adopt-A-Spot and have taken the spot just beyond the library on the left. Each year they have planted additional perennials in their large plot. MWC is a service club and does much to support the community by doing good.

The Moultonborough Women’s Club awaits anxiously for Monday, January 6, to welcome Katie O’Connell as our first speaker of the New Year. Katie O’Connell owns and operates Dragonfly Yoga Barn Studio & Retreat in North Sandwich, NH, where she teaches daily classes and runs weekend yoga retreats. Katie hosts trainings and workshops at Dragonfly Yoga Barn and has been leading 200 hour RYS trainings since 2011. Katie has been teaching for 14 years and has been registered with Yoga Alliance since 2006. She’s a Ayureda Health Practitioner, Ayureda Yoga Specialist, Reiki Practtioner and Thai body worker. Now, you know why MWC awaits anxiously.
Led by Janet Schurko, a dozen members joined a workshop during November to make hand made tree ornaments for the donated decorated Christmas tree for the Altrusa Club for the ninth year. The Festival of Trees was held at the Waukewan Golf Course and filled the barn with beautiful Christmas trees. Last year 34 of the 59 decorated trees were given to needy families and seniors. Christmas is a big thing with the women’s club. Besides helping the Altrusa Club a few members knit mittens and hats all year. MWC , a service club also collects new toys to give to the town’s needy children each year.
