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!

Julie Osgood, MWC Co-President; Olivia Conway, Director of Development and Marketing at Circle Program; and Pam King MWC Co-President
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 mentor, they 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.

Janet Schurko, MWC’s 2021 Woman of the Year and Amy Corston, Director
The Moultonborough Women’s Club has named Janet Schurko the recipient of the 2021 Woman of the Year Award. Her sweet spirit and compassion has led her to devote her time and efforts to serving others in various capacities for the community. She has been a valuable asset as chair of the Remembrance Committee and has spread her kindness to club members, nursing home residents, Meals on Wheels homebound recipients and at the local veteran’s home with notes, home made cards and messages of comfort and encouragement.
Christmas time has seen Janet managing the club’s holiday gift projects for area children and she has led a team in making ornaments for the club’s beautifully decorated contribution to Altrusa’s Festival of Trees events. Janet organizes a talented group of knitters and crocheters for the Meredith Savings Bank’s Mitten Tree project, herself knitting many hats, scarves and mittens.
Thank you Janet, for your devotion to others and service to the Moultonborough Women’s Club.
