Published DateMOULTONBOROUGH — The Moultonborough Historical Society has long accepted gifts in memory of loved ones. But due to the recent sad death of Cynthia Lamprey, wife of Stewart Lamprey of Moultonborough, the Society has initiated a Memorial Fund dedicated to paying off the mortgage on the Society's headquarters, the Lamprey House, and to continuing working to restore that building and put it to good use as one of the most important buildings in the village.
Cynthia Lamprey, who passed away on January 9 this year, was a mainstay, along with her husband Stewart, of the Historical Society and particularly of the Lamprey House, Stewart's boyhood home. On important open house days, she could always be seen sitting in porch rocker enjoying a parade or chatting with friends. She will be sorely missed by the Society members, and by her husband, Stewart.
As a way of honoring her memory, the Society is accepting memorial gifts which are immediately used to discharge the balance in the line of credit the Society has at the Meredith Village Savings Bank. To date the fund has received over two thousand dollars which have been used to pay down the balance. Once the line of credit has been discharged, all funds from these donations will be used to restore the upper floors at the Lamprey House.
Further, this year, the Society will begin to create a memorial garden on the south side of the Lamprey House. In addition to Cynthia Lamprey's fund, people wishing to honor the memory of a loved one can make a donation to buy a plant for the garden.
Anyone wishing to make a tax deductible donation, in Cynthia's memory, or to honor a loved one of their own, should send a check to the Moultonborough Historical Society, PO Box 659, Moultonborough NH 03254, marked Memorial Fund.
