I hope you and yours are enjoying this holiday season as much as you possibly can amidst all the required COVID modifications.
As I'm sure your family is, we are anticipating leaving 2020 behind and welcoming 2021 with much hope.
The MWC is ushering in the new year with a fun, virtual meeting with Donald Grandmaison of Lef Farms which is located in Loudon, NH. You may have already been enjoying their wares from the produce department at Hannaford! This will be a great opportunity to learn about another successful, local business and about hydroponically grown greens. We will gather at 12:00 via zoom and settle in then Donald will join us at 12:30.

Since we have all the donations in for Making Strides, I wanted to give you an update. The 2020 total raised was $3587.84 which brings the grand total-to-date to: $141,171.84. Thank you to Deb Kumpf and everyone involved in supporting this worthy cause!
Thanks to the generosity of 32 MWC members, $2,405 was raised to buys gifts for 58 local children!! In addition, we gathered donations of toys, gift cards and wrapping paper for the families in transition at Waypoint in Laconia. Thank you to Janet Schurko, Deb Kumpf, Pam King and Julie Osgood for facilitating this!
While we will not necessarily be having a "monthly charity" each month in these crazy, COVID times, I am sure that we all are doing what we can to support worthy causes, especially the local charities that keep our neighbors well-fed and clothed like Lakes Region Food Pantry. I am including a link to their site for your convenience if you have anything to spare this month. http://www.lakesregionfoodpantry.org/donations/
I'm looking forward to 1/4. See you all then!
