It's been a LONG time coming but Springtime is finally here and how welcome it is for so many reasons, not the least of which is a MWC meeting next Monday! We will be welcoming Phoebe VanScoy-Giessler, the Development & Communications Director for Prescott Farm to hear about all they have to offer to our community in terms of environmental education. You can check out their website via the link below so you know what to expect and come armed with any questions that may come up for you https://prescottfarm.org. Please review last month's minutes that were attached to the reminder email before we "gather" via Zoom at 12:00. I will send the meeting link and Treasurer's report first thing Monday morning.
In the meantime, let's send out a big welcome to Kerry Soroka, our newest member whom we met on Zoom last month!
Kerry and her husband both vacationed in Moultonborough and Meredith as children. They raised a son and daughter in Boxborough, Massachusetts and, in 2019, they bought a house in Moltonborough. Kerry's husband is retired and she presently is working from home due to the COVID. She plans to retire in the near future, sell their house in MA and live solely up here. Kerry loves to kayak, boat and garden. She is looking forward to the warmer weather to enjoy all three!
I also want to especially thank some women who continually step up to help the MWC do all the things we do! First, Libby Reichlen once again has volunteered to fill a number of voids! She has generously offered to remain in her Director position for an extra year in addition to taking on Mil's Historian responsibilities. She is also actively recruiting volunteers for other vacancies (which include the VP position as well as spots on the Hospitality and Ways and Means Committees). Then, we have Harriet Bicksler who does so many things, I don't know what we would do without her energy and leadership! Next year, she will continue to work on FOUR committees: Town Meeting Lunch, Anniversary Party, Jewelry Sale and Donations! Finally, our 2020 Woman of the Year, Carol Bamberry is coming through for the Club yet again by coordinating the Scholarship Bake Sales which is a critical need!! THANK YOU, Ladies!
Next, I want to highlight a local volunteer opportunity that serves our membership area. Interlakes Community Caregivers is looking for volunteer drivers to help our neighbors live independently and with dignity. ICCI Volunteers provide rides to doctor's appointments and run errands for vulnerable adults who must rely on others to fulfill their basic needs of access to health care, nutrition and mental wellbeing. Volunteers are able to self-select when and where they would like to volunteer Monday through Friday, during business hours. For more information or to fill out a volunteer application, please go online at https://interlakescares.org/volunteer
or call Rachel Saliba at 603-253-9275 ext 4 or email at email@example.com
I will be in touch early Monday with the Zoom link and I'll see you at the meeting!
