With its Annual Meeting on May 2 and the Scholarship Dance on May 4, the Rochester Women’s Club wrapped up an active and successful year. At the Annual Meeting, outgoing president Marsha Hartley recapped activities and events of the year including sponsoring the Rochester Girl Scout troop, hosting a brunch honoring local veterans on Armed Forces Day, joining with the Rochester Land Trust to clean up Rochester roads in celebration of Earth Day, helping out at the Plumb Corner Halloween celebration, sponsoring a Rochester family in need with gifts and food for the holidays. The club maintained its facility by putting on a new roof.
Fundraisers throughout the year were geared toward renewing the club’s Scholarship program after several years in hiatus. Those efforts included Thanksgiving pies, hand-decorated Christmas wreaths, a holiday bake sale, Soups for Scholarships and finally, the successful Scholarship Dance. This graduation season, two $500 scholarships will be awarded to Rochester students.
Nancy Boutin was elected as the club’s President for the coming two years. The Rochester Women’s Club thanks everyone who supported or participated in activities over the past year. Monthly meetings will resume in September. Meetings are held on the first Thursday of the month. All area women are welcome to attend.
