MWC President and members working a Scholarship bake sale at the Moultonboro Primary
The Moultonborough Women's Club Scholarship chair Mary Lou Charron and co-chair Louise O'Donald did an absolute, exceptional grand job of organizing the bake sale held during the Primary and will deposit the proceeds into our depleted scholarship fund. Members brought in fresh baked goods through out the day to appease all. Last June MWC awarded $7000 in scholarships to local students and now fund raising is needed. Amazingly, records kept over several years show a grand total of $182,350 donated in scholarships. That's hard to believe that a group of women can accomplish such a feat. Bake sales are an integral part of raising funds and we thank our community for their generous support. It certainly does take a village.

It began on quite a chilly September morn, with anxious members ready to begin a fresh new season.

Baked Goods at Primary Election Tuesday, Sept 11, at Life Safety Building
On Tuesday, September 11, the polls will open at the Life Safety Building on Route 25, for Primary Election Day. The Moultonborough Women's Club will be there to hold their usual bake sale of delicious home made baked goodies. Enthusiastic Scholarship Chair Mary Lou Charron and Bake Sale Co-Chair Louise O’Donald are gearing up for the MWC Bake Sale to be held that day along with their innovative committee. This is our first effort to raise money for scholarships and is our primary goal. Our coffers need refilling to be able to award scholarships in the spring. All proceeds go directly into the scholarship fund. Best to arrive early for those sought after pies, cakes, cookies, squares and hopefully whoopie pies. Food will continue to arrive during the day and will end when sold out. MWC always marvels at the generous Moultonborough community and we invite them to stop by for a chat and a free cup of coffee.
