Butterfly Effect Award

Updated: Sep 17, 2023

What is the Butterfly Effect? A term coined by the chaos theory that suggests that wing movements of one butterfly may have significant repercussions on wind strength and movements throughout the weather systems of the word, and, theoretically, could cause tornadoes halfway around the world. The name of the award was inspired by the heartfelt words of Peter Milewski to describe his beloved daughter, the late Carolyn Ouellette, a Hingham mom active in community service.

"Carolyn and other Hingham moms make amazing things happen both in this town and also in communities around the world," says the HMC Co-President Liz Deininger. "This award is designed to recognize the amazing work that mothers do on a daily basis to make our local and larger community a better place."

Nominate a deserving Hingham mother who has improved our community through service. Nominee does not need to be a HWC member but does need to live in Hingham. Currently not accepting nominees.
