Scholarship Fund is Tax Exempt

Thanks to the hard work of members Joan Bringardner, Jane Wylen, Joan Nulty, and Alex Sterling, and to accountant Brad Douglas and attorney Robert Bailey, our scholarship fund is officially tax exempt.  This group has been dedicated to this very detailed pro

Teddy Bears to Bring Bucks

Alex Sterling continues to come up with new ideas.  She and Gerry Tatham are working on a new fundraising project - fashionable teddy bears that are more than cute and cuddly.  These bears are also well-dressed.  The bears will be 10" and will sport a hand-knit sweater bearing (pun intended) the phrase "AAUW 20"!  Knitting
