Welcome. This is the official Web site of the Tahoe Nevada branch of AAUW. Please explore the site to find out who we are, what we are doing, and how to join us.
Also, our February 2016 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 the second Wednesday of December.. All other meetings through May are held on the third Wednesday, weather permitting. To make a dinner reservation, email Kelley Werner by the Sunday before the meeting.
Guest Speaker for February’s dinner meeting: Have you ever wondered about the origin of the many interesting street and place names in Reno? Your curiosity may be satisfied by the speaker at our February dinner meeting. She is Reno author Holly Walton Buchanan. Ms. Buchanan has written four books relating to the history of the Reno area. She will speak in particular about her most recent book, Historic Ranches of Western Nevada. In researching this book Ms. Buchanan interviewed the descendants of several early settlers to the Reno area. Many of the photographs in the books were obtained from those interviewed. Copies of the hardcover book will be available for sale.
