April 2024

Welcome to April, and a busy month for AAUW Tillamook. First, thank you to everyone working behind the scenes to keep our branch activities and administration moving. Here are a few activities underway for April.

  1. Thank you to our scholarship committee who will review scholarships later this month for our University scholarships.
  2. High school STEM award nominees have been received and arrangements have been made with the high schools to present the awards at their award ceremonies in May.
  3. Thank you to our governance committee which is working hard on our bylaw updates so we comply with state and national requirements.
  4. Lisa Phipps has planned a Candidate Forum for us for April 21.
  5. We printed a brand new AAUW Tillamook branch brochure that will be available at the candidate forum.

These things have many moving pieces, and it takes all of us working together to get everything done. So, thank you a million to everyone who is pitching in. We do not have a meeting in April due to the Candidate Forum, I would like to say thank you to Kathy Gervasi, Sydney Elliott, and Carol Iwaniw, who put on an informative and fabulously performed readers theater in March for Women’s History Month. I hope to see you all at the Candidate Forum and in May when we have our next meeting.

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!
