Special Note From Pat Shores, Finance Officer:

Winter Belles, the name of our annual winter fundraiser this year, is critically important to the financial health of our branch operating fund. The $22 portion of AAUW annual dues that Ballwin-Chesterfield retains does not cover all the wonderful things we do. The winter fundraiser is the way we raise the additional monies we need to maintain our high-quality programs and activities, and is an every-member participation event.
Whether or not you cannot attend this year’s event, Winter Belles, you can contribute $50 and become a “Belle of the Branch.” Your name will be featured on a poster and in the program. All you need do is write a check made payable to AAUW B-C and give it to Pat Shores, at the November meeting. If you prefer, you can mail your check to Pat at the address found in the Directory.

Fall Kick-off Resounding Success!

We sang suffragettes songs, played a birthday game for a flower give-away, and enjoyed good food & camaraderie. Also, we welcomed some new members and the sign-up tables for interest groups & committees saw lots of action.
