It’s hard to believe that almost three years have past since our branch’s 50th anniversary celebration. The Laguna Beach branch’s 50th party is May 7th and I hope you’ll all attend along with our members who are dual members from the Laguna branch. A flyer was emailed to you early April.
As you may have seen the email announcing it, our branch now has a Facebook page. We posted the Women’s Leadership Forum flyer and plan to add much more. Please let me know if you’d like to help. Speaking of the forum, we recently learned that Marge Sosa and Eleanor Porter (Mission Viejo branch) were successful in securing an AAUW CAP grant for $5,000 to defray expenses and provide seed money for next year. Congratulations!!! The committee has been doing an outstanding job planning this event and registrations have been strong. I hope to see you there!
As sometimes happens, we’ve needed to make some changes to our next two monthly meetings. The installation of officers has been moved to our June meeting. Also, the AAUW Grant Recipient speaker is unable to attend this month so we’re fortunate to present a special program by two of our adventurous members who’ve just returned from Dubai. What stories they have to share! It should be a great meeting.
I’m happy to announce that we’ve just purchased a new sound system which should greatly improve everyone’s experience at our luncheons. Many thanks to Linda Hughes for her expertise, research and negotiaing a price for us. We have borrowed her personal equipment several ,meetings – thanks Linda!
