MWC 2021 Geneva Point

Posted on August 30, 2021 at 6:10 PM

On September 13th the Moultonborough Women’s Club will gather at Geneva Point for a time of fun and fellowship.  A BYO lunch and delicious dessert table provided by the September hostesses will be followed by the general meeting and Coffee Can Auction.  The annual MWC Tea follows later in the week to welcome twelve new members.  Upcoming meetings are scheduled at the Moultonborough Function Hall with a luncheon provided. 

 

The mission of the Moultonborough Woman’s Club since its founding in 1950, has been to promote civic, educational and social activities within the community.

 

The club’s energies, time and donations have been focused on the good of the community.  Since 1960, the Scholarship Program has raised over $202,000 to aid deserving post-secondary Moultonborough students.  In addition to scholarships, the club has supported various local programs including food pantries, animal shelters, veteran’s organizations, hospice and pediatric services, and family and women’s shelters.  Providing for the community has been key to its mission.  Some of the many fundraisers have included Silent Auctions, Bake Sales (July 4th Book Sales and at the polls), raffles, bag lunches for Town Meetings, Garden Tours, Galas, and more.  By participating in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walks each year, a team from the MWC has raised over $141,000 for the American Cancer Society.  The club has been involved in the Adopt-A-Spot program, maintaining the garden in front of Moultonborough’s town hall and has contributed to Meredith Village Savings Bank’s Mitten Tree Program and Altrusa’s annual Festival of Trees.

 

Members of the MWC enjoy socializing at each meeting and at special events.  Various speakers, including community leaders, authors, charitable organizations and notable community members, share their expertise to enhance our knowledge and understanding of specific topics.  Members have opportunities to share their skills, work with women of diverse talents and backgrounds and communicate ideas and experiences to realize personal growth. 

 

The Moultonborough Women’s Club meets at 11:30AM on the first Monday of the month October through May at the Moultonborough Function Hall (former Lions Club.)  September meetings have been held at Geneva Point and in June we typically have an end of season banquet. The monthly meetings begin with lunch, a speaker of interest, followed by a business meeting.  You are welcome to join us for a meeting if you are new to the area or have been a longtime member of our community.  Please visit our website for more information.  In addition to Moultonborough, members are from Center Harbor, Laconia, Mirror Lake, Meredith, Sandwich, Tuftonboro and we welcome those from other surrounding towns.

The MWC’s Bake Sales Are Back! The rain subsided, the clouds parted and the sun shone at this year’s MWC Bake Sale held at the Moultonborough Library’s Book Sale – our first in over a year! The members baked a wide variety of scrumptious treats! Thank you to everyone who participated; over $1000 was raised which will all go to the MWC Scholarship Fund for Moultonborough students.


A big Thank You to all of the bakers and helpers, and a special thanks to MWC member Carol Bamberry for chairing this much anticipated fundraiser.
