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

Annual Senior Luncheon once again a Success!

Thank you to everyone who helped out with the Senior Lunch!  It was a huge success (again)!
There were about 60 seniors who came and enjoyed the lunch. They started coming about 11, even though lunch wasn’t served until noon! We had 10 eighth graders who, led by Mrs. Dayton, set-up, served, and cleaned up. They were fantastic! The BHS concert choir came and entertained during the lunch. Their concert included music from “thru the years”, so there were plenty of songs that the seniors could tap their toes to.

Thank you to everyone who cooked, baked, or bought!  Without the food donations, this would not happen. And a special thanks to those ladies (and their daughters) who helped out in the kitchen. This behind the scenes help is critical to making the lunch run smoothly.
The roses were provided by Highland Park Market and were gorgeous! The May birthdays received a complimentary vase of roses and the rest were given away with the door prizes.  The seniors loved the variety of gifts!

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! Soon, a plaque will be installed to recognize all who donated to this project. Please help review the list before we have it permanently installed. If you see any errors, please email

Our membership consists of women of all ages - from our youngest in their 20s to the oldest in their 80s!  If you are interested in meeting new friends, ready to have some fun and looking for connections to your community, we have all that and MORE.   Membership in Bolton Women’s Club opens opportunities for entertainment and learning experiences about the many aspects of our community and surrounding area.
You won’t want to miss out on what we have planned for this year! As a member you can participate in those programs and activities that interest you, including our general meetings, Time Out Socials, Book Club, special committees and executive board.

Our general meetings are held from 7-8 p.m. on the first Thursday of each month from September to May.  Our Membership Social is the first meeting of our calendar year and is hosted at the home by a BWC member. The October meeting has historically been a pot luck dinner but starting this year, we are having a wine tasting session!  The location for general meetings is Chandler Hall, located at the Congregational Church on Bolton Center Road by the town hall. Executive board meetings take place 1 hour prior to the general meetings at the same location. All members are welcome to attend. From June through August, we take a break from our General Meetings and programs, however, Time Out Socials and the Book Club may continue to meet. It is a wonderful opportunity to share common interests while enjoying each other’s friendship.

Club members will have access to Members Only information on our website.  You will be provided a login ID and password when you join the club. Membership also includes periodic emails and a quarterly newsletter which are chock full of information for you. Our membership directory is updated every year and gives members ready access to phone and addresses of other members. The Club’s Executive Board leads the direction of the club as well as organizing the year’s activities.  If you would like to contact any member of your 2015-2016 Board, please email us directly.
We have many activities and events that require your support to be successful. The Halloween Party is a long standing tradition of providing a safe environment for the town’s children to trick or treat, enjoy games, go on a hay ride and have fun. Words, Women, and Wine is our book club that meets monthly to discuss books, poetry, and even podcasts! Our fundraisers for this year include: Election Day Bake Sale, a Wine Tasting Festival in cooperation with the South Windsor Women’s Club, and Family Day. Our Vice Presidents work hard finding fun activities for our members during Time Out Socials (TOS). TOS’s meet outside the club’s meeting times for wine tastings, Paint Night, Movie shows and more. It’s a great way to strengthen friendships and get to know other members. We also provide community service to the town with the annual Senior Luncheon, working with the PTA and other town organizations, Home Life donations, and more.

Bolton Women’s Club is a non-profit organization allowing women to gather together to learn from each, support the community through service and fundraising efforts and enjoy each other’s company.
I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming meeting.
Jan Carlow
BWC President 2015-2016
