NHWT 5K looking for Future Volunteers

 Looking to get involved in a project that supports great local causes, focuses on women’s wellness, and promotes our chapter in amazing ways? Then the NHWT 5K is the perfect project! 

We need committee members and project shadows! The great part – this project, one of the largest fundraisers for our chapter, practically runs itself with the work the former chairs did to establish easy to follow project reports! 

We need new chairs to bring new ideas to this great project! Please consider shadowing this year! If you like community service and women’s wellness this is the perfect project for you! 

Get your running shoes ready and save the date for April 21, 2018! 

Your 2018 Project Chairs, Teri B & Cassie L

Holiday Shopping Spree . . .

It's the most wonderful time of the year! To keep our annual tradition going, we're looking for 25 volunteers to help bring joy to economically disadvantaged children.

Each volunteer is paired with a child and to help them buy Christmas gifts for their family members. They should have a list, but not all do. Each child is given $50 to spend, which is money we raised from the wreath sales, butter braid sales and our booth at the Cooper Craft Fair. After shopping, you help your child wrap their gifts and then visit with Santa.

This event is a favorite for many members. It's a one-on-one opportunity to bring holiday joy for a child and their family. If you've volunteered in the past, you know how special this project is. Please consider signing-up your significant other, friends and neighbors, but volunteers should be at least 18 years or older. To sign-up please email

Thanks from the Holiday Shopping Spree Committee, Pam M, Marion H, Terri J

P.S. – Please bring gift bags to the November meeting. We need these for the shopping spree in addition to the gift wrap that we already have!

A November Note from President Carrie

I always struggle with writing a little blurb for the newsletter, mostly because I’m not a writer. I’ve been told numerous times that I write how I speak. Not sure if that is a good thing? Haha! This time a topic came up pretty easy for me, mostly because of the things that are going on in the world. Women coming out and making a stand against their abusers is a huge thing! But I wanted to touch base on the aftermath…the support these women receive from other women once they’ve come out. Far too often do I see women come out and put their heart and soul out for all to see, and what does it seem like the first reaction from other women is? Criticism, judgement, and cattiness…I’m not saying everyone has this reaction. But more often than not, this is happening. I have personally been on the receiving end of this judgment; I’ve been judged as a mom, a wife, a housekeeper…heck, I’m sure I’ve had some judgements on this year’s presidency. I have also been the judger. I recently let my opinion be known about an acquaintance who’s had a crappy life situation handed to her. Afterwards, I felt really bad - because who am I to judge? It got me thinking that to be a woman is hard! To raise two little women is going to be a challenge if I can’t figure out how to give constructive criticism to other ladies as examples for my daughters. So I am going to start working on my “growth” portion of our creed. I will not say anything if I can’t say something nice. I will raise up my sisters, not tear them down. We are a women’s group full of strong women, so I challenge you: think before you speak. Could what you’re about to say be said differently? Are you about to fill a bucket or up end it? Happy Thanksgiving!! Carrie
