AAUW makes plans for year

A portion of the proceeds from the 2018 AAUW Garden Tour held in July were donated to the University of Jamestown and designated for the AAUW Endowment Fund. This endowment was started in the early 1980’s and is now over $40,000. Each year it funds a scholarship for a junior or senior woman at the yniversity.

The AAUW Planning Committee met for a potluck supper at the home of Deb Alber in Marion on Aug. 14. Reports were given on the Garden Tour, the AAUW Used Bookstore and the Pioneer School at Frontier Village. Plans were made for the 2018-19 program year with committee members having the responsibility of contacting speakers, securing meeting places and following up on other details.

The first meeting of the year was Sept. 6 at Edgewood Senior Living Center. A light meal was served and the schedule of programs and events for the year were reviewed. Hazell DeGroot and Helen Hample, who reside at Edgewood, were recognized for their many years of membership in AAUW. A representative of Edgewood led a tour of the facility.

Guests are always welcome and more information about AAUW can be found at www.jamestown-nd.aauw.net and on Facebook, www.facebook.com/AAUW JamestownND.
