February Events

I am looking forward to welcoming Dr. Paul Jarrell, the new President of Tillamook Bay Community College as our presenter this Saturday, Feb. 17. We will not have a business meeting. It will only be the presentation this time. I would also like to let everyone know that it is Charity Drive week at Tillamook High School and there is a Brunch fundraiser at Pacific Restaurant on the same day as our meeting. It runs from 9 am – 2 pm. It is an opportunity for the membership to gather after the meeting socially if anyone is interested.

Saturday, February 17, 10 AM presentation by Dr. Paul Jarrell, TBCC President, location will be TBCC/OSU Partners For Rural Innovation Building 4506 Third Street, Tillamook, OR 97141.

The meeting can be attended via Zoom. Here is the link to participate.

About TILLAMOOK Branch

The Tillamook branch of AAUW works together to promote the welfare, education, and rights of all women and girls.

With these goals in mind, the branch works on fundraising projects and other programs that promote math, science, and technology (STEM)  education for girls by honoring nine high school women each year for their excellence in these fields and by providing thousands of dollars worth of scholarships for local women attending 2-and 4-year higher educational institutions.

Our community education projects include co-sponsorship of county spelling bees and the hosting of political forums so that citizens can meet the candidates and hear their views.

We are on social media too!  Please follow us on Facebook!
