I have begun to count the days until we are back in motion! We can now see August 29 for our August Tea and September 12 for our regular programs from here, and I’m excited for the new year. While I certainly do not want the summer to speed by any faster than it is, I look forward to being back in the House and catching up with everyone. Thank you for continuing to make our web site your go-to resource for information on our wonderful Branch.
Behind the scenes, our great leadership team has been working diligently to bring you fantastic programs, book clubs, informal gatherings, special activities, and advancements in technology in the coming year. We are fortunate to have a hard-working volunteer staff who have spent countless hours planning for 2023-24. Please make sure to reach out to anyone that you know who is involved with the leadership team and let them know how much they are appreciated.
AAUW St. Paul means the world to me. While there is (always) a lot going on in the world that needs attention, I like our focus on women and creating opportunities for them to become educated most of all. At AAUW St. Paul we are all different in so many ways, but we are connected by our educations. Because of education, our lives have been enriched. I am proud of the work that we do to support women. It does not stop with young women, however. I am again asking that you reach out and reconnect with those whom you may not have heard from in a while. Please take a few minutes to let her know how important she is to you. A call or a note may be just what someone special to you needs!
Have a wonderful August, and I hope to see all of you soon!
My best to all,
Carol Hanson, AAUW President 2022-24
