We’ve just added scholarships for women returning to college, so spread the word.  Deadline is May 22, 2015.  Prospective applicants, please click here for details and application form in MS Word, or here for Adobe PDF.

Fundraising Committee update  We did it.  With proceeds from our sellout Wine and Easels event and other heroic efforts, we achieved our $10,000 goal for the Courage Sans Peur matching grant.  Thanks to all who contributed.



  Also, our May Newsletter is here.

Meetings: Except for the November meeting and the December Holiday Party, the Tahoe Nevada branch meets for dinner and a program on the third Wednesday of each month. The November meeting may be held on the second Wednesday to avoid conflict with Thanksgiving, and the Holiday Party is scheduled for a date a couple of weeks before Christmas.. All other meetings through May are held on the third Wednesday, weather permitting. To make a dinner reservation, email Abby Kirst by the Sunday before the meeting.

Activities: Tahoe Nevada has active special interest groups such as the Outdoor Enthusiasts and the Book Group, To find out how to participate in those activities, click on the special-interest-group link on the right.

Joining: To join AAUW, email the membership co-chair, Abby Kirst. Membership forms are available here.
