MWC Welcomes Bill Gassman - by Mil Toczko

Posted on May 9, 2019 at 10:10 AM


Seventy one members of the Moultonborough Women’s Club welcomed Bill Gassman, an interesting and informative speaker on our Moultonborough Water Basin. Bill is a volunteer, who frequently checks the quality of our big lake by taking numerous samples. He explained how milfoil and other invasive weeds have invaded our waters and must be stopped. We all want clean water and educating the public is one way to help along with conservation. Bill loves his work and gave an interesting many photo power point. The Q & A was lively.

 

Chef Donna Grow catered a most delicious, savory pot roast luncheon, with all the necessary trimmings, such as her rich gravy. Cecelia Hansen was in charge of the dessert ladies and they provided one of the best tables of decadent, tempting, luscious desserts yet. Working with her were: Mitzie Crowe, Donna Robbillard, Suzanne Wiederhelft, Barbara Brash, Pam King, Julie Osgood, Carol O’Hara, Donna Conway and Ginger Ishkanian with Libby Reichlen on Coffee.


Old shoes: Wow, you wouldn’t believe all the old shoes that were brought in for this months charity. Harriet Bicksler discovered this charity a few years back and the response has been fabulous. The heavier the better, as the shoes are taken to Littleton, weighed and exchanged for money that then goes to Second Chance Animal Rescue.


The Nominating committee consisting of Susan Reepmeyer, Pam Toczko and Marlene Taussig presented the new slate of officers last month and members voted unanimously for: President Amy Corston, Vice President Tricia Martin-Wallace, Recordring Secretary Susan Reepmeyer, Corresponding Secretary Leslie Ann Angelo, Treasurer Kathy Garry. Directors: Deb Kumpf, Libby Reichlen and Harriet Bicksler.


Pam King is in charge of tickets for the up coming Gala and Silent Auction and reported tickets are going fast. The cost is $20 per person and includes appetizers by well known Chef Eloise Post, cash bar, music that will get you dancing and time enough to peruse the fabulous auction items. Call Pam for a table of 6 or 8 and get your friends to make an Inexpensive party night. Call 493-2044. 


Business vendors: Thanks to the efforts of Amy Corston and Kathy Garry, we are now officially 501c3 making charitable donations easier to obtain.

Red Cross Volunteer visits Women's Club - by Mil Toczko

Posted on April 4, 2019 at 7:15 PM


The Moultonborough Women’s Club April Hostess committee


April 1, 54 members attended the Moultonborough Women’s Club meeting and enjoyed learning quite a bit about the the American Red Cross. The featured speaker was one of our own members, Susan Doherty-Funke, who is active in the New Hampshire Red Cross. Susan’s talk was very interesting and informative. The Red Cross is made up of 90 percent volunteers that assist individuals, families and communities in times of disaster. Susan volunteers her time as a local Disaster Action Team member and is Duty Officer for the Vermont/New Hampshire Region. She also volunteers as a Blood Ambassador at area Blood Drives. Susan is a bundle of energy and has proven to be a tenacious organizer. She made a grand speaker and kept the audience enthralled.


Susan happens to be our Hospitality Chairperson and keeps busy in that position, working with the dessert team each month. This Is a requirement of each member to serve on this committee once a year; to help set up before a meeting and provide scrumptious desserts to end our delicious luncheons catered by Chef Donna Grow. Serving this month was: Barbara Perry, Nancy Zeloski, Caroline Bailey, Sue Noyes, Peg Young, Debbie Colvin, Pam Toczko; Barb Koehler brewed the coffee. The Nominating Committee consisting of Sue Reepmeyer, Pam Toczko and Marlene Taussig reported their new slate of officers, which will be voted next month. Donna Conway reports that scholarship applications are available to Moultonborough students and others who wish to continue their education. Must be in by April 15.

 

May is the time to bring in your old shoes regardless of appearance. Heavy duty boots are the best and that’s because these shoes from dainty sandals to construction boots are paid by weight and proceeds go to the Littleton Second Chance Animal Shelter. Harriet Bicksler discovered this unusual charity and takes the shoes each year to Littleton. An abundance of gifts were donated to the NH Veterans Home Sunshine Cart, which was the charity of this month. President Deb Kumpf relates that they are always grateful for our donations of useful articles they can use.

 

There is a lot of activity going on this month. Membership is busy collecting yearly dues from 127 members. The June Banquet will be held at Bald Peak and a committee is deep in making preparations. This is when our Officers and Directors are installed by our Parliamentarian Dotti Simpson, who does a super meaningful job. Another very large event is also due in June, the Spring and Silent Auction Gala chaired by Amy Corston, That entails participation of just about all our members as it’s the biggest event of the year, which helps the most in fundraising for scholarships. Another committee recently gathered to discuss the upcoming event to celebrate the club’s 70th anniversary. More about that later. 


Not to be forgotten are our Gardners who maintain “Adopt A Spot”. Once again Barb Koehler and her companion Gardners will spring clean the grounds at the large area just beyond the Moultonborough Library and before the town hall is a big plot of land MWC has been maintaining for several years to help in the beautification of our town. These ladies are not afraid to get their hands dirty. We thank them for their devotion, time, dedication and energy.
