MWC December 2021 - by Leslie Ann Ashe Angelo

Posted on December 22, 2021 at 11:55 AM

The halls were truly decked in holiday greenery as the members of the Moultonborough Women’s Club brought their voices together in harmony to sing Deck the Halls and other merry carols as Deb Kumpf led a singalong at the December meeting.  The members donned festive sweaters in the spirit of the season and an assortment of holiday treats provided by this month’s hostess committee was enjoyed after a delicious luncheon.  The Waypoint program and the Moultonborough Children’s Christmas Fund were the designated gift organizations for the month.  A team of knitters and crocheters led by Janet Schurko displayed hats, gloves, mittens and scarves to be donated to the Meredith Village Savings Bank’s Mitten Tree. 

The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer designated MWC’s team a Crusader Crew for their participation in their October walkathon.  Thank you to all those who walked and supported this worthwhile event.
 
A wish for a very merry Christmas and a happy holiday season to all!

Thank you to our November hostesses for providing the delicious treats at our meeting this month. Pictured are Diane Schneider, Susan Reepmeyer, Bernadette Squittieri, Jane Harrington, Barbara Palmer, Cindy Bergeron, Jill Alexander and Carol Bamberry

The Moultonborough Women’s Club’s November seminar highlighted financial planning, wills and trusts. Laconia’s Susan Chisholm, Esq. spoke at this month’s meeting emphasizing wise planning for the future. She provided a wealth of valuable information about the importance of estate planning no matter what your age or financial position, describing several valuable planning documents, recent legislation that affects estate planning, information about trusts, estate taxes, probate and more. Her discussion generated many questions and much interest. Thank you, Susan, for your informative discussion.


The MWC is looking forward to celebrating the December meeting with a “festive sweater” event, an assortment of holiday treats provided the hostess committee and in the spirit of the holiday, a traditional singalong lead by Deb Kumpf. The Waypoint program (formerly Child and Family Services) and the Moultonborough Children’s Christmas Fund (which provides Moultonborough children with toys, games, winter coats and boots, winter clothing and grocery gift cards) are the designated gift organizations for December. Ornaments are available on the Wish Tree in the library for the Children’s Fund, please call the library at 603-476-8895 if you have any questions. The MWC participation in Meredith Village Savings Bank’s Mitten Tree continues as knitters and crocheters led by Janet Schurko have been working diligently throughout the year to provide warm hats, scarves and mittens for the event.


A wish for a very happy Thanksgiving to all!

“Wear your PINK” was the call out from Deb Kumpf and Nancy McDonough as the Moultonborough Woman’s Club team gathered on a warm October afternoon for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. Sixteen walkers collected over $7,200 in donations last month for the American Cancer Society, making this ambitious group the 7th highest fundraising team in all New Hampshire for this year. Over the last 25 years, club members have raised over $148,000 for this worthy cause. Thank you to Nancy and Deb for your dedication to this worthy cause and to this year’s walkers GO PINK!

Olivia Conway, Director of Development and Marketing at the Circle Program joined the Moultonborough Women’s Club at the October meeting.  Located in Plymouth NH, the Circle Program’s purpose is to “empower girls, helping them become confident, fearless, and strong women with a voice and vision to make an impact in their communities, showing them that there are truly no limits to what they can achieve or who they want to be in life.”  By involving the girls in summer camps, activities during the school year and by pairing them with a volunteer mentorthey have succeeded in making a difference in the lives of these girls.  Several of these young women have come full circle and are now mentoring the younger girls, giving back what they have learned.  Thank you, Olivia, for sharing the program’s mission to serve girls locally in a safe and caring environment with acceptance and reinforcement enabling them to grow into the future.  Currently there are 64 participants ages 9-18.  Olivia was asked if they would bring back the “Circle Trot” fundraising walk, stay tuned for more information!  www.circleprogram.org


 

October’s meeting marked the first time the club has returned to the Moultonborough Function Hall.  A delicious pot roast lunch was served and scrumptious desserts provided by the hospitality team were enjoyed.  A total of 61 women attended the meeting, 58 members, one new member and two guests. 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.   In addition to Moultonborough, members are from Center Harbor, Laconia, Mirror Lake, Meredith, Sandwich, Tuftonboro and we welcome those from other surrounding towns.
