Armchair Travel at the Petaluma Library
November 3 at 10 a.m.


Join us for a relaxed and casual “Armchair Travel” program presented by three AAUW members who will share their observations about Iran, Cuba, and Egypt. You may have noticed our membership is hitting the road to destinations around the globe.

We’re looking forward to hearing from Gail Whooley about Iran, Cherry Baumann about Cuba, and Wendy Porter about Egypt. In addition to their presentations, they’ll take your questions.

Location will be the Petaluma Regional Library on Saturday, November 3, at 10 am. Bring family and friends to hear about their adventures. The public is welcomed.

Janet Silverberg, Co-VP Program

Holiday Luncheon

Our annual Holiday Luncheon is early this year. It arrives on Saturday, December 1, at 11:30 a.m. at Cattlemen’s Restaurant, 5012 Petaluma Boulevard North. The schedule includes a no-host bar in our private dining room at 11:30 followed by lunch around noon.

Our guest speaker will be a local business owner, Tali Bouskila of Second Street Flowers in Theatre Square in downtown Petaluma.

If you would like, please bring a new, unwrapped toy to be included in our annual charity toy drive for Christmas Cheer.


Reservations and checks are due a week before the luncheon. Your food selections are Ravioli Pasta (vegetarian); or Top Sirloin Steak, Lemon Herb Chicken, or Grilled Salmon Steak. Each meal includes mashed potatoes, salad, beans, bread, coffee, soda or tea, and cheesecake.

Mail your $25 checks (before Thanksgiving) so they arrive by Saturday, Nov 24, to Dianne Trumpy, 1568 Filippini Way, Petaluma, 94954. Note your choice of entree. Make checks payable to Petaluma AAUW.

See you all in December!

A Message from Our Scholarship Recipient

Dear American Association of University Women:

I would like to thank you for choosing me to receive a scholarship award. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to return to school and earn my degrees in Psychology and Business Administration. Being a strong and educated woman is very important and rewarding, but I’m not only doing this for myself; I am doing this for my children. I want to encourage them to attend college and continue learning. I believe that having an education helps tremendously with self-confidence and self- esteem. I want to be successful for my family and lead by example. Thank you once again for helping me along in my journey. I truly appreciate it.

Sincerely, Kimberlie Cardenas
