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. It’s success takes a lot of planning and work! Each year the Boyd House is decorated with a theme-inspired manner of the days when the Boyds were in residence. This year’s theme is “Christmas on Connecticut”. Join with us beginning on Thursday, December 5, as we celebrate 40 years as Weymouth Center. The house will be open for tours, followed by a formal Gala on Saturday. Teddy Bear Tea wraps it all up on Sunday.
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.
If you are interested in joining Women of Weymouth, please contact the Weymouth Center office at (910) 692-6261 or email.
