January, February, and March

I really did post for the beginning two months of the year, but there was a glitch in the system and they got lost. I can, however, recap as these three months are relatively slow months for activities and meetings. Many of our members head south during this time and the weather is unpredictable, so we have our monthly meetings by Zoom and won’t start the dinner meetings until April.


We have welcomed a new member, Bill Adams, who has already attended a meeting and chosen a service project he is interested in pursing. Our other new member, Nina, has already put in 20 hours helping out at Bingo.

Vision Screening

President Mark, screened 98 students at Plymouth Elementary School in early January. Ten of those students were referred to see an optometrist. We welcome the opportunity to test students and can use the vision screener for children aged three months and up. The earlier a vision problem is detected, the sooner it can get corrected.

Eyeglass Collection

Thanks to the wonderful people in our communities we collected 508 pairs of glasses to send to Virginia to determine the prescription and then mailed to third world countries.

Reading in the Schools

This Tuesday, March 26, we delivered 267 new books to each student at Moultonborough Central School. The books are selected by either the librarians or the reading teachers at each of the elementary schools in Moultonborough, Sandwich, and Tuftonboro. We will be bringing books to Sandwich and Tuftonboro at dates they will choose.
