The Lynn Struck Memorial Bench.

    Lynn Struck passed away October 15, 2014 surrounded by her loving family, after battling cancer for 3 years. In her 57 years she touched the hearts and minds of people too numerous to count. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Lynn was an active, contributing member of both civic and religious organizations including mission trips and religious education at the House of Hope.  Lynn had the biggest heart and especially loved kids. She was a home child care provider for many years. She also volunteered her time to help at the Crisis Nursery, Ronald McDonald House, Red Cross Babysitting Clinic, local schools and more!

    As a 28 year member of the new Hope Women of Today Lynn was instrumental in recruiting new members and ensuring they felt welcome and needed.  She opened up her house for many meetings and social events. Lynn initiated and chaired many projects to benefit our community and worthy causes, such as Duk Duk Daze, benefit dances and wreath sales that helped raise money for PRISM, Home Free, the March of Dimes, the Lupus Foundation, School District 281, and many other charities.  Her giving nature kept her an active member to ensure that our chapter continues to flourish and remain an integral part of this community.  Lynn truly left the world a better place!

   In December of 2014 New Hope Women of Today started the process to place a memorial bench at Northwood Park to honor Lynn’s many years of faithful service to the community. Lynn’s Bench has now been placed at its permanent home at Northwood Park along the walking path facing the pond and a newly redesigned playground. It is a beautiful location to gather and reflect. A simple community dedication will be held on Thursday, June 1, 2017 at 6:30 pm for all to gather and share stories about Lynn. Ice Cream treats and beverages will be provided for those in attendance.

   The New Hope Women of Today would like to thank the many members of our community that made personal donations, the NHWT 2015 Annual Convention Committee, the Minnesota Women of Today Foundation, and City of New Hope for their support and contributions to this project. Along with the placing the bench with the help of our many community sponsors, we were able to donate $1000 to the Frauenshuh Cancer Center at Park Nicollet in Memory of Lynn Struck.

Highway & Park Clean Up!

Adopt-A-Highway and Park is scheduled for Thursday, May 25th. We will meet in the parking lot of McDonalds in New Hope on 42nd and Winnetka on Thursday, May 25th at 6:00 PM.

This is the only project that we are committed as a chapter to do twice a year and many hands make for light work!! If you have younger kids, you can still help! We will have you and the kids work in Civic Park, right next to New Hope City Hall. We will meet back up at McDonalds afterwards for a treat! For questions or to RSVP please contact Tawn H.

A May Note from President Carrie.

Hello and welcome to a new year with the Women of Today! I decided to take a HUGE leap outside my comfort zone and tackle the presidency this year since I truly enjoy this organization and all the ladies I have met. I’m hoping to see us grow this year. Not just in membership, but as a group and individually! I’d love to start “Thinking Outside the Box”, find more projects for us to do and getting together a bit more to get to know one another again. But I can’t do this alone! So I hope you join me in Being Courageous this year, step outside your comfort zone and help make this a great year!
