One Hot Bake Sale for MWC - by Mil Toczko

Posted on July 14, 2019 at 9:15 AM

MOULTONBOROUGH WOMEN’S CLUB BAKE SALE ON JULY 6


The Moultonborough Women’s Club experienced one of the hottest days of the summer with a 90 degrees temperature for their bake sale held on Moultonborough Public Library grounds on Saturday, July 6. Thank goodness the baked goods sold out by 2:00 with successful results. Early birds got the choicest picks with the scrumptious goodies the members baked as well as first choice in the MPL gigantic book sale. Chair Mary Lou Charron with Julie Osgood, Wilda Elliot and Diane Hayes worked the morning shift and were relieved by Janet Moe, Nancy McDonough and Barb Koehler. Members brought in delicious tempting treats, something for everyone to enjoy. The usual huge assortment of cookies, brownies were on hand and some patriotic decorated cakes and cupcakes. Needless to say, pies disappear as soon as they arrive; always a best seller.


This past June, MWC awarded $8,000 to local students and now we start to refill our coffers for next season of awards. Today colleges are far too expensive for typical families; seeing the need, scholarships became the ideal solution to plan, work to aid not only high school students but also help those wanting to continue with education. MWC members are dedicated to this good cause and devote much of their time with bake sales being a successful way to raise funds. We give sincere thanks to the community because they also play an integral part with their generosity in this endeavor. Plus a huge thanks to the Moultonborough Public Library, who share their grounds and offer aid whenever possible.

The Moultonborough Women’s Club awarded $8,000 in scholarships to four hard working Moultonborough Academy students. This happens to be the club’s pet passion and has been doing this since 1960, when they saw the need. It all began by holding bake sales at every election and then sandwich sales, which added to the fund. Besides bake sales, one large social event is held each year for a fund raiser. Research and keeping records show the total MWC has awarded an astonishing $192,350 since 1960. Seniors and their families gathered at Geneva Point Center for the annual Senior/Parent Banquet where students were presented the scholarships.

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.
