Happy New Year!

Another New Year and an opportunity to better our world – amongst ourselves, our families, the community, and our country. Especially recently, we’ve been made aware that if we don’t take care of the world (whether we’re talking climate change, availability of vaccine against Covid especially in poorer countries, food and shelter for all) we are all impacted. We remain focused on promoting the advancement of women and girls. In word and deed we strive to make the world more equitable for everyone! We’ve made progress and more is needed.

We have the ability to stand up for equity and we can make change possible with our donations and advocacy. With your year-end gift to the special 140th Anniversary Year-End Giving Drive – matched by AAUW’s board, leaders, and staff through December 31st – your gift will grow in value and impact. AAUW makes sure that policymakers will be stronger in their support of our common causes in economic security, civil rights, education, and gender equity. In economic terms, our act of giving, coupled with this matching offer, truly means a redoubling of effort to help the economic security of American women and families.

Congratulations to our winner of the $300 gift card in the Raffle fundraiser, Barbara Bird. Special thanks to Ruth Lyle for an even bigger year than last, amounting to $2,915 in this effort to raise funding for our textbook scholarships.

There will be no January monthly meeting, but Wine, Women, and Wisdom will meet in January. Look for the email and in this newsletter for the date, time, and venue.

Joy and Peace for the New Year!
Cheryl Fuller, AAUW SA President
