On Monday, November 18 at 7 pm, the Wolfeboro Democrats have invited Raetha Stoddard to speak in the Lower Lounge at the Wolfeboro Inn about her work with Starting Point in area communities.
Starting Point provides critical services and support to victims, survivors, their families and our community who have experienced domestic and sexual violence, stalking and human trafficking. Services are extensive, and trauma informed empowering victims to move from victimization to survivorhood, while eradicating the cultural factors that support these oppressions. By restoring basic human rights denied a person through victimization we can break the cycle of abuse, so that we can all live free of domestic and sexual violence. More information is available at startingpointnh.org.
Raetha Stoddard has been with Starting Point for 10 years as a volunteer and for the past 5 years on staff. She is currently the Community Outreach and Prevention specialist, a role that fulfills her passion to support the work by engaging the community.
The public is invited to attend. Raetha’s talk will be followed by a regular meeting of the Wolfeboro Democrats.

Elizabeth Warren will be in Wolfeboro next Wednesday, August 14 at the home of Edie and Paul DesMarais, 116 Clark Rd. “Doors” to the back yard open at 6:00 pm, program begins at 6:30. Elizabeth usually invites people to line up for a photo op on your phone after her speech. Edie has 3 requests:
Please carpool. The numbers could be really big and parking will be tight.
Second, please bring lawn chairs if you have them. The campaign will bring some, but if they want to be sure to have a seat, best to be prepared. We may potentially be in the field above our gardens. People will be able to see better if sitting. The field allows for more of those who want to come to be able to.
Please, if you can, bring a snack food or drinks to share.
From Blair Moffett:
On Thursday July 11 Harvey Stephenson died, just days short of his 100th birthday. Harvey was a great soul, unfailingly optimistic, loyally Democrat. Canvassing with Harvey in campaign season was always a privilege and an inspiration. I visited Harvey at the Mt View Home the Saturday before he died. He was so very frail, but alert in mind. He spoke with deep appreciation for “all my beautiful friends,” many of which had visited him.
A service will be held to celebrate Harvey’s life next Friday, July 26 at 10:00am at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Tamworth. Friends are invited.
Update: There will be a more formal memorial service for Harvey at some point in the future. We’ll keep you posted.
