President’s Letter

A Message from the President

Dear Fellow Club Members,

As many of you know, I like to start out club meetings with an inspirational quote, so I have decided to begin my annual address in the same manner.

I was once told that – “Volunteers are not paid, not because they are worthless but because they are priceless”. I feel that no mantra could more aptly apply to our incredible members than this one. So thank you everyone for being truly priceless!

As I reflect on last year, I am reminded of the challenge our club faced when we lost our meeting space, but thanks to the kind assistance of the Hopkinton Historical Society, we relocated temporarily to their headquarters on Hayden Rowe. This year we will transition into our new permanent meeting space at the Hopkinton Public Library when it reopens in the fall. My hope is that this new central, accessible location will improve our visibility, and help us to increase our membership.

I now that the Chairwomen and members of our numerous committees have been working hard to provide us with fun and informative activities and opportunities for the coming year. And as always any ideas, advice or assistance would be most welcome. I feel that one of our club’s greatest strengths is how well we all work together and support each other.

I am excited to see what we can achieve this year and am looking forward to sharing fun and making memories with my fellow club members, who I am proud to call friends.

I thank you all for playing such an important role in making our town special and our club so extraordinary, through your volunteerism, generosity and public spirit.

Let’s make this year our best ever!

Annette Proudman

Hopkinton Women’s Club President
