Ladies who provide great treats for the Moultonborough Women’s Club meeting
The frost is on the pumpkin and time to see what’s going on this coming month at the Moultonborough Women’s Club. Program Chair Janet Moe has engaged Dawn Thomson from Reuben’s Rescue Ranch as our November speaker. Dawn Thomson is an independent columnist who, with the help of her husband and two children, runs a private animal sanctuary, called Reuben’s Rescue Ranch, located at 161 Route 104, Danbury, NH.
Their mission is to provide a permanent safe haven for animals in need, as well as offering educational opportunities for the public to share hands-on experiences with these beloved creatures. Reuben’s Rescue Ranch is open to the public for visitors, on Saturdays 10am-5pm, from mid May through late October. Group outings are available at other times, by appointment. They sell farm-fresh eggs and offer an on-site thrift shop, with all proceeds going directly to support the farm. Donations are also gratefully accepted.
Hospitality Chair Susan Doherty-Funke made earlier arrangements with Chef Donna Grow to cater a baked ham luncheon. November hostesses: Carol Bamberry, Donna DeMeo, Diane Hayes, Mary Michener, Fran Orenstein, Barbara Palmer, Tracy Webster-Babcock, and Deb Wiacek. Coffee Libby Reichlen. Charity this month will go to the Reuben’s Rescue Ranch. The Food Pantry is always happy to accept food donations.

Sandwich Fair speaker Jennifer Wright with Deb Kumpf
A great turnout for the Moultonborough Women’s Club, with 82 in attendance for the October 7 meeting. Deb Kumpf had the pleasure to introduce Jennifer Wright, who informed us all about the Sandwich Fair. This is Jennifer’s second appearance at MWC. The first time was back in January, 2011, when she was a CDR in the U.S. Navy and spoke on “Women in the Military”. She was in the military for 26 years, now works in the Sandwich Selectman’s Office for the past 15 years, plus has an office in the Sandwich Historical Society and part of Sandwich Fair Association since 2006. She’s back with full acknowledgment on all that goes on at the Sandwich Fair. Many NH town sponsor fairs each fall and Sandwich has one of the very best and is truly a family tradition. There are always loads of animals, crafts, woodworking, food preservation, forestry, canning field crops, 4H competition and many ribbons awarded. The Sandwich Fair has a great history and began as the very first fair in our nation. Jennifer happens to be the daughter of our long time MWC member and dear friend Karen Wright.
October dessert and refreshment committee
Hospitality chair Susan Doherty-Funke arranged earlier with Chef Donna Grow to cater a stuffed pork loin dinner with all the necessary accouterments. Chef Grow runs a well oiled machine, with a well trained cohesive group. Another well organized group put out a fantastic dessert table to complete the fabulous luncheon. This table had grazers for some time; hard to choose these extraordinary selections. Joining our nation on Sunday October 6, Nancy McDonough and Deb Kumpf lead a team at Opechee Park and sponsors turned in a huge, marvelous amount of $7,648.
