AAUW Petaluma Fall Social

Sunday, September 9
Petaluma Community Center

Members and prospective members are invited to the Annual Fall Social of the Petaluma Branch of AAUW on Sunday, September 9 at 1:15 p.m. at the Petaluma Community Center, 320 N. McDowell Blvd. Any woman or man with a two-year degree is welcome to join AAUW.

Our Fall Social will feature Lina Mendez who was the first Petaluman to attend the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders in Maryland this summer, partially funded by a special scholarship from the Petaluma Branch of AAUW. Lina, 22, graduated from Santa Rosa Junior College with two associate degrees. She is headed to the University of California/Los Angeles (UCLA) to major in both economics and pre-law.

The Branch will recognize Kimberlie Cardenas and Shareen Dalyrecipients of its annual scholarships at SRJC and Sonoma State University, respectively.

We will introduce the four eighth grade girls from Petaluma who received Branch sponsorships to attend Tech Trek at SSU; they will report on their experiences at the math and science camp.  AAUW’s Tech Trek program began 20 years ago at one campus (Stanford) and has expanded to 21 camps, 10 of which are in California..

Branch leaders will present general meeting plans for the coming year as well asspecial sections’ activities. The Petaluma Branch begins its 64th year this fall, focused on encouraging higher education for women and girls.
