Women of Weymouth
For decades, the Women of Weymouth have gathered monthly to enjoy informative programs and plan activities for the Weymouth membership in order to raise funds to care for the Boyd house. This work continues in full measure today.
Annual activities of the Women of Weymouth include:
- Strawberry Festival is a lovely buffet luncheon featuring the fresh strawberries of the season, salad and tea sandwiches prepared by the Women of Weymouth. It is held on the flower-filled East Lawn of Boyd House.
- A Summer tapas party is held each August featuring gourmet food and wine.
- Supper on the Grounds ushers in the fall season with a catered dinner, wine, beer and live music.
- Christmas House is our largest fundraiser. Garden Clubs, local designers and artisans decorate the house in a theme inspired manner of the days when the Boyds were in residence. The house is open for tours, a formal Preview Gala, a Candlelight Tour and an evening of Christmas caroling. Christmas House ushers in the holiday season for many in the area.
Membership is open to all women who are members of Weymouth in good standing. Monthly meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of the month unless it is a holiday Monday. The meetings begin at 9:30 am with coffee, a short business meeting and a program. A dutch treat lunch follows at a designated location. The current membership is over 200.
