Archive for December, 2015

Looking forward to 2016

Following our very successful end-of-the-year business/holiday meeting, we are looking at an exciting year ahead.  First, we have a new slate of officers elected in December for a two-year term as follows:  President-Jane Labun; Vice-President-Nancy Hassam; Secretary-Helena Davison; Treasurer-Connie Philleo.  We approved our budget for the coming year, which includes donations to the food shelves in Newbury and Wells River as well as a reserve of $250 to be donated to other worthy causes as chosen by the club sometime in the next year.  Also, the club approved changes to our Constitution and By-Laws which open up club membership to anyone over 18 (female, male, Newburyite, non-Newburyite. etc.) who is interested in supporting and participating in club activities.  We discussed  the successful fundraisers we held during 2015 and re-expressed our deep thanks to the Modern Woodmen Organization for their donation to the Old Village Church restoration fund.  Included in our discussion as well were all the various activities held by the club’s interest groups throughout the year.

Finally, a note of heartfelt appreciation to Martha Griswold who has served for many years (decades?) in various club offices including president, vice-president and treasurer and who has done a terrific job organizing many of our fund-raisers including, but not limited to, our Town Meeting Day refreshment table and our spring flea market.  She has been a mainstay of the organization and is responsible for our continued success over the years.  We cannot thank her enough for all she has contributed to the club and our community.
