Grants Pass Branch ~ June 2017

44th Annual Frog O’Faire Children’s Festival at Riverside Park Saturday June 17th –10:00 am -3:00 pm

Once again, over 25 booths and a stage with live entertainment will spring up by 10 a.m. at Riverside Park. Volunteers are always needed for this wonderful, free event that the branch puts on for the community’s children to celebrate the beginning of summer.

We have some new booths this year and hope to see you—either volunteering or bringing your children and grandchildren — or both! If you can volunteer, contact Joyce Loomis or Suzanne Wicklin. Drop-in volunteers are also welcome. Look for the volunteer booth near the Pavilion.

A number of jobs are open for next year’s committee, and this is a great chance to see how it all works and what it looks like. You might see a job that you would love to volunteer for next year!

 

Time to vote!

Who will lead our organization?  What will our public policy platform be for the next two years?  It’s your AAUW, so your voice counts. For more information, go to: http://www.aauw.org/resource/national-election/

 

Equal Pay

A typical woman working full time, year-round in the United States is paid just 80 cents for every dollar a man is paid, which means this year she had to work until April 4, 2017, to be paid as much as the typical man took home by December 31, 2016. Sound fair to you?
