A Message from the President
I am so honored to be your President for the next two years. I welcome your suggestions and hope you will bear with me while I learn the ropes! I have very large shoes to try to fill.
This year we will start off with our first joint venture. The Women’s Club will join with the Hopkinton Emergency Fund for a Golf Tournament at Shining Rock. I know our Fundraising Committee is working diligently to make this event a huge success and I’m sure all of our members will support them in this effort. Our Community Register will once again be published and distributed throughout the town. The changes to it last year were very well received and we hope to have more advertisers this year. Due to our fundraising success last, year we were able to award 20 scholarships to Hopkinton students along with the Mary McDonough award and two Endeavor awards. Hopefully we will be able to repeat that this year. Local charities will continue to receive donations through Project H.O.P.E. and the generosity of our members. Our Publicity/Social Media Committees continue to successfully get our name out to the public.
We have a wonderful slate of programs this year and our October program will be in the evening in order to allow members with day jobs to attend. Our monthly meetings will also start at 9:30 at the library instead of 10:00. Of course we will continue to offer a hybrid option for those who are unable to attend in person.
We all lead busy lives but your active support and commitment are what allow us to make such an impact in our community. I am proud to serve with this wonderful group of amazing women. Let’s work together for a successful 2022-2023!
HWC President 2022-2023
