Moultonborough Women's Club


June Reminder

Greetings Ladies,

It seems that we were just together – and indeed we were just last week!  But our Monday, June 3rd Annual Banquet is coming up very soon and we must have our total counts (per meal choice!) by THIS Saturday, May 18 – that means act NOW if you haven’t yet signed up and you want to go!!  Here’s the info to register: Email or call Libby Reichlen and let her know if you want the Amish Chicken or the Lobster-stuffed Haddock.  Remember that you are committing to the $35 member cost.   Remember -- Do this NOW!!


Our Annual Banquet this year, once again, will be held at Bald Peak Colony Club, Rt. 109 South, Moultonborough (180 Bald Peak Drive if you’re putting it in your GPS).  Bald Peak’s Clubhouse features an unparalleled view of Lake Winnipesaukee across Moultonborough Bay.  For those who have registered, the date is Monday, June 3; arrival time is 11:30AM for the East Lounge and Outer Terrace (let’s hope for a sunny day!)  There will be a Cash Bar (actually servers), but no tipping, please.  The plated lunch will be served around 12:15PM in the Main Dining Room.  Note that Bald Peak is handicapped accessible. Dress Code: No Jeans or Denim allowed – not even denim jackets! 

Brief directions, as the first time can be confusing:  From the Lions Club or Moultonborough Village, take Rt. 109 South for several miles (about 5 miles from Old 109 – don’t forget to take the RIGHT fork when Rt. 171 splits off), past Suissevale and Clark’s Landing.  Turn RIGHT at the flashing light and stop at the guard station to check in.  Continue on that road for just about 1 mile as it turns to the left. The clubhouse will be on your right after a sharper left turn.  It has a U-shaped driveway in front with some limited parking; there is more parking in the lot just beyond the clubhouse. 

Note that there will be some sign-ups at the meeting for upcoming events (July 6 Bake Sale & October 12 Yard Sale) and for next year (membership renewals and hostess month) – note that these need to be done NOW so the handbook is correct!  Many of you should have already completed these, so you should be all set!

PROGRAM – MWC Celebrates!

At this meeting, we celebrate our past successes and induct our new slate of officers in a very special ceremony conducted by Dotti Simpson.  Also, there will be a short business meeting at the Banquet, as we have some By Law additions to vote on.  More on that in a forthcoming Part 2 reminder email!!


2019 MWC Spring Gala – Our Biannual Gala is UPON US!!!  The big date is: Saturday, JUNE 1!  Do you have YOUR tickets yet for this wonderful event that earns so much for our Scholarship Fund (and a bit for the general fund)? 

  • LAST CALL to donate a basket or service for the Silent Auction (your own, group, or a few items). Contact Deb with your completed form (attached).  You have until May 24 to tell us what you will donate.  The baskets / items should be delivered to the Lions Club during Gala setup. 
  • The Wine Pull is a quick and easy way to take home a great bottle of wine from the Gala – but only IF we get wine donated!  Please donate a bottle of wine worth at least $10 – you can drop them off at the Gala setup on Friday, May 31
  • The second session of Food Preparation is Friday, May 24 at the Gilford Community Church.  Contact Eloise Post if you can make it!  Also, we will need a few members helping out on Friday, May 31 at the Lions Club.
  • Tickets will be sold ONLY until Thursday, May 30 -- $20 each.  Call Pam King at 493-2044.
  • If you took home tablecloths to wash, please return them to the Lions Club on Friday, May 31 at 9:00 AM.  If you can’t make that, drop them off at our next Gala meeting at the Library on Wednesday, May 22 at 1:30.

Dues are Due! - If you haven’t yet renewed your membership for 2019-2020 (still just $30), the June Banquet is your last chance (we will have a credit card option available at the June meeting – high tech)!  OR mail your check NOW to our MWC address: P.O. Box 877, Center Harbor, NH 03226.  Tell us what month you will be hostess, too! Also, if you are not renewing your membership, please let Suzanne Knapik know that so we don’t inadvertently remove your information from the handbook.  

Handbook – Please look carefully at YOUR contact information in this year’s handbook to ensure all the information is correct!  If not, please email corrections to Suzanne Knapik. 

Bake Sale – Saturday, July 6 - One of our traditional bake sales for the upcoming year will be held at the M'boro Library's Annual Summer Book Sale on Saturday July 6th.  (NOTE: This was listed as July 4 in the handbook, as the Library had not yet set their actual dates.) We will be signing up volunteers to work and bake – we need mid-day workers and we can always sell more goodies! The Library – and all book shoppers – look forward to this sale, so let’s bake SO MUCH to satisfy all those sweet teeth!


Thanks for the PLETHORA of shoes donated for the Littleton Animal Rescue.  They OVERFILLED Harriet’s pickup truck!!  The shelter was SO appreciative.  They told Harriet the money raised with the shoes helps to pay for their 40-50 spay or neuter operations PER DAY!!!! 


The Member News – including May’s 3 new members’ bios – will be in the reminder part 2!

More will follow in Part 2 of this month’s reminder – stay tuned!!
