Salem Woman's Club to wrap up season Tuesday
SALEM - The Salem Woman's Club will have its final meeting of the season Tuesday, at Kelley Library on Main Street.
A luncheon will be served at noon by hostesses Jan Landry, Lorraine Amirault and Ellen Ventura.
Amirault is the club's outstanding member of the year. She will be honored at the General Federation of Women's Clubs of New Hampshire's annual meeting Friday, May 10, at the Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside in Portsmouth. Honorees will receive an honor roll pin and a small gift while their accomplishments are read.
"Lorraine is always willing to help," said Co-President Dorothy Falco. "Whenever we ask her to help, she is right there."
Co-President Beverly Johnson said Amirault, who joined the club eight years ago and was treasurer for six years, bakes for all the club's sales, participates in the Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society and always pitches in for the many community projects.
The club supports its community projects through fundraising. Among its community service is support for local food pantries, scholarships for high school graduates, comfort pillows and quilts for hospitalized cancer patients and children, and donations to the Salem Animal Rescue League.
The club meets the first Tuesday of the month at the library. Meetings will resume in September.
Winnipesaukee DAR changes meeting date

Kessler. Anyone who has fun ideas for the June 8 meeting is encouraged to share them at the May meeting.
In April, Sheryll Ross, docent of the Clark Museum, talked about the museum's summer calendar and also asked for the members' help as tour guides for the summer. A training day for guides is set for 3 p.m. Wednesday, June 5, at the museum. Members were told they could attend the training to ask questions and observe; there is no obligation. The tour guide hours are flexible. For more information, contact Ross at 569-5709 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
