PRESIDENTS’ MESSAGE: We are so excited! We have been trying to get our September speaker for a year. Lauren Halagarda of The Organization Connection will teach us the “Clear and Simple Way to Organize”. Who couldn’t use a little help in that department? See meeting details below.

By the time you read this, Evelyn and I will be spreading the AAUW message at the New River Officer’s Spouse Club Open House on Sunday, September 16 from 2-5 p.m. We are eager to share AAUW with our military connected friends. Be sure to tell your friends about it too.

Connie and Evelyn
