The AAUW vision is equity for all.

We look forward to the holiday season, which promises to be like none other we have experienced.  As a popular song suggests. “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!” And in that spirit, we invite you to celebrate your holiday traditions, stories, recipes, songs, poems, and special wishes at our December 5th Branch Meeting.  The gifts you share will usher us toward a spirit of connection, peace and love…. which is something we can all appreciate and welcome at this extraordinary time. Please keep an eye out for a special invitation to this virtual celebration!

Please try to join us … we are hoping to fill the Zoom Gallery with as many of our branch members as we can.   Here is the zoom link for the holiday celebration:

Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday, December 5th !!
