The Andover Service Club is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization of (approximately) 50 women from Andover and neighboring communities. Its mission is to be of service to the people of the community and the State and to broaden and strengthen the social and intellectual life of its members.
Although our general monthly meetings and usual fundraising events have been curtailed during the COVID-19 pandemic, members have continued to support our organization. They baked pies for the successful Thanksgiving Pie sale in 2021. The monies raised fund the ASC Merit Scholarship Program, which has benefited hundreds of Andover High School graduates and continuing education college students since 1959. In 2021, four scholarships were awarded.
Proceeds from the ASC Thrift and Gift Shop also support the philanthropic mission of the Club. It sells new and gently used clothing and accessories and has incorporated beautiful, handcrafted articles, made by local craftspeople, some of whom were attracted by the ASC’s Jingle Bell Christmas Fair, organized by our former president, Mary Ofenloch.
Throughout the years, the ASC has donated to many other community organizations, but COVID-19 has limited our fundraising opportunities, resulting in the Club having to somewhat curtail these financial contributions. We look forward to a future when we can resume our various community projects.
The ASC general meetings are held at 10 AM on the second Wednesday of the month, September to June, in the Highland Lake Grange Hall in East Andover. To make inquiries about membership write to PO Box 22, Andover NH 03216 or visit the Thrift and Gift Shop. We welcome new members.
