I am looking forward to hearing Yuko Taniguchi at our October meeting. On the
national level, AAUW has the Adelante book club which seeks out books written from diverse perspectives. Copies of the Adelante book list will be available at the October general meeting.
AAUW Rochester is again a sponsor of the Extraordinary Rochester Women Award for 2012. We are mentioned as a sponsor on page 10 of the Sept/Oct issue of Rochester Women Magazine. You can nominate a woman for this award by Oct. 10. Nomination forms are available at RWmagazine.com.
The Red Wing Area Branch of AAUW received an AAUW community action grant to create “Women Making Change”, a documentary of women in Minnesota politics. I have a copy of the DVD if you would like to view it.
AAUW sponsors a National Conference for College Women Student Leaders. The next conference is May 31-June 2, 2012. AAUW Minnesota has scholarship money available. AAUW Rochester would like to send someone to this conference next year. We would like branch members to suggest names of students.
Oct 11 is the birthday of Eleanor Roosevelt. To celebrate her birthday, please join me for coffee at Dunn Brothers North at 8:30AM.
