Summer has rolled in and the sunscreen and puddle jumpers are by the front door! As we shift into summer mode, this proves to be a special time to reflect on the incredible year we’ve had as a club.
June marked our second year supporting Pathways for Children as we joined their efforts in a beautiful and meaningful event at Endicott College. Thank you to everyone who attended, donated, and otherwise supported this event. A big thank you to the Community Outreach team, Lauren Ledbetter and Caitlin Bard for organizing a fantastic raffle which generated additional proceeds for Pathways and the incredible programs they run for disadvantaged children on the North Shore. The generosity of our members continues to be humbling, thank you to all who participated in a Community Outreach drive over this past year. Your compassion and generosity is what makes the North Shore such a wonderful place to live.
Three cheers for all the children who turned out to an event this past year and the Children’s Events team, Emily Madden and Jane Henry. We certainly ended the year with ear-to-ear smiles on the kiddos at the Family Pool Party at the Manchester Athletic Club! A bouncy house, pool, pizza and cupcakes certainly summed up a happy year with some fantastic gatherings! It was great to see a few dads join in as well!
The Tea House playground has never seen so much fun! Thank you to everyone who participated in playgroup and to Corrie Sprague and Meagan Kurtz for an epic year of fun-filled get togethers. We continue to be in good hands going forward as Marta Minnetyan has bravely accepted the reins and will be organizing playgroup in the upcoming year. Please email email@example.com if you are interested in being notified if there is a summer get-together.
While things may quiet down a bit this time of year, we hope you take advantage of our private Hamilton-Wenham Mothers’ Club Facebook Group to reach out to other members for an impromptu beach gathering or playground fun. Summer days are long, so lets share some fun together!
A big thanks to all who have generously donated meals to those families welcoming a little one! We count on members to let our Meals for Moms and Welcome Wagon teams, Aimee Cooper and Erin Deegan, know when there are new arrivals. We love meeting ALL the new additions to our community!
We have a few special events coming your way so please be sure to save the date(s):
Wednesday July 27 at 7:30 Casual meet up at 15 Walnut for Moms. Check our Facebook page for details!
Thursday, September 29th at 7:30PM will be our Annual Membership Drive at the Wenham Museum. All are welcome! Tuck the kids in and please come join us for a beautiful evening gathering with new friends and old. We have many exciting things lined up for the next year as well as some “old favorites”!
Next year will be another exciting year of fun events and we are excited to welcome our new council members and to announce that Jane Henry will be joining Anna Rossi as next year’s Co-President. Thank you to Hillary Holmes for two wonderful and dedicated years as Co-President! Your positivity and welcoming spirit has brought great joy to the Mothers’ Club!
