We hope all of you have enjoyed your summer, having survived the heat and smoke. We are looking forward to this new year as your Co-Presidents. We are excited to be moving back to the updated and greatly improved Fruitdale Grange for our meetings and our fall and spring Brunches this year. We think you will be happy with the changes! There are a variety of fun, interesting, and thought-provoking meetings planned for this year. The topics will be announced in the tri-fold brochure we will distribute at our annual Welcome Brunch (Saturday, September 19th at 10:00 am). We hope to see you there, and hope that you bring a guest (or several guests!) so they can find out what AAUW is all about, while enjoying good food and fun conversation.
At the Roundtable on July 25th, we spent a great day with members of the Board, planning for the year to come. We accomplished a lot during this full day of discussion and activities.
We adopted five Goals for the Branch that will provide the framework for the year ahead:
- Reach out to women of all ages.
- Welcome and engage all members.
- Enhance AAUW branding in all we do.
- Advance our symbiotic relationship with RCC.
- Support quality education for women and girls of all ages.
Thanks to each of you for everything you do to make the Grant Pass Branch of AAUW the best service organization around. Let’s get started on another fabulous year!
