The Bolton Women's Club has been caring for and supporting our community for over 40 years!

Our Story

The BWC is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that provides civic, cultural, educational and social growth opportunities within our town and community. Members engage in service projects and fundraising for Bolton and area organizations.  The BWC provides a forum to meet and work together on friendly and fun projects.

The Bolton Women's Club has been caring for and supporting our community for over 50 years!

Our Story

The BWC is more than a club
 More than some chicks hanging out in a pub
 More than a social group meeting to chat
 More than women testing foods and getting fat.

 It's a group of great women willing to share
 A gathering of females to learn and to care
 Made up of individuals who want to do good
And together we have seen many ways that we could. 

We know in our hearts it's important to give 
To each other, our schools, the town where we live 
As a group we can do so much more than alone 
And we know we are lucky to make Bolton our home.

Annual Senior Luncheon once again a Success!

There were 65 attendees to the event and the generosity of the BWC members made it possible to have a plethora of yummy foods for the seniors. Although we did not have the 8th grade students to serve this year (miscommunication) the Regional Lions Club members volunteered in full force and helped with setup, serving, and clean up. Their support made the event a smooth success.

Dan Ayer and the Bolton High School Chorus were also in attendance and provided a sublime performance for our Seniors.

I want to thank you all for your generosity and help with this annual event. Special thanks to Esa and her husband, Kim, Donna, Carole, and Bessy for carving time out of their busy lives and spending several hours working at the Senior Center on Wednesday. I'd also like to graciously thank Carrie Concatelli, the Senior Center Director, her intern, Angellina for helping with the planning and execution of the Senior Tea.

At the end of the Luncheon, the Seniors Inc. President: Cheryl Udin graciously thanked the Bolton Women's Club for hosting an event that the BWC started back in 1973! She also presented a check for $250.00 to cover the costs incurred and to show how pleased the Seniors were with the Tea. 

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony held to celebrate the opening of the NEW Herrick Park Playground!

Children and adults gathered at Herrick Park on Saturday, April 27th to celebrate the completion of the playground. Bolton Women's Club spent four years raising the funds to refurbish the playground. Thank you to the community for their donations and supporting the fundraising efforts! The new playground is safe, beautiful and will be will be enjoyed by children for many years to come!

We meet monthly to discuss a member recommended book, enjoy food and wine that reflect the book’s setting, plot and culture. We learn more about what is going on in our world and about each other. When one of our books has been made into a movie, we either have a movie party or go to the theatre together. On occasion, we haunt local bookstores and attend author’s book signings. BTW, when attending a R. J. Julia book event featuring Jaques Pepin, we enjoyed dinner afterward at the next table.
