Upcoming Branch Activities
All AAUW meetings scheduled for the months of April and May have been cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak. This includes the Book Group, Half the Sky, the Board of Directors and regular monthly branch meetings.
Used Book Sale Canceled
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Elmhurst Area AAUW Branch has made the difficult decision to cancel the Used Book Sale this summer. The safety of our community and the safety of our dedicated members who collect, sort, and sell these books are our primary concerns. We hope to host the Used Book Sale again next year.
Due to the current state of things, the May Supper has been canceled. We have rescheduled with Angelo’s Ristorante, where the September Supper will be held. You will be able to pick from two entrees, which have yet to be selected. The meal will not be served family-style. We will also have a bartender so members will not have to go downstairs to the bar for drinks.
2020 AAUW 13-State Regional Convention
The Regional Convention scheduled for June 18 – 20, 2020, in Moline, IL has been canceled. The plan is to reschedule in summer 2021.
The AAUW Funds committee has decided to hold all scholarship money until next year. Many applicants were unable to obtain records from their colleges and others did not have access to printers. All applicants were encouraged to apply again. They will be notified when the scholarships become available, and they have been encouraged to check the AAUW web site.
Work Smart Update
We postponed our Work Smart class at the library due to the stay at home order, but a March library email listed AAUW Work Smart as on online class option which linked directly to the AAUW course offering. We look forward to rescheduling the class at the library – possibly in the fall.
