Jan 2012 AAUW President’s Letter

Happy New Year!  This year AAUW will continue to support the youth in our community. The new AAUW report on sexual harassment in schools, “Crossing the Line”, was referenced in over 1000 media reports the first day it was published.  I ordered copies of the report for all Rochester high schools and middle schools.  AAUW sent $300 to the Rochester Regional Science Fair for operating expenses and will also have our 2 $100 prizes for outstanding projects by a middle school and high school girl.  AAUW members
will help judge at the science fair Feb 16-17. The theme for the science fair is
“Water: Our Natural Resource”.  AAUW will sponsor a table at the “Beat the
Odds” banquet Jan 26.  Tickets are $60.00.  Contact Ione Schloegel if you are interested in attending.  We are also looking at providing graduation awards to girls from the 3 Rochester public high schools – if you are interested in helping with this project please let me know.

AAUW will support the arts by attending the play “Molly Sweeney” at the
Rochester Rep Theater at 8:00PM on Thursday January 19.  We will have dinner at Hunan Garden at 6:00PM.  Please contact me if you would like to join us.
