AAUW hosts AVID Christmas party
Last updated 1/3/2008 at Noon
FALLBROOK — The month of December brought many joyous occasions to the members of the Fallbrook American Association of University Women (AAUW), but the merriment and glee that came from the annual AVID Christmas party exceeded all the events.
AVID mentors from the organization hosted more than 20 girls from the Fallbrook High School program at the home of member Judy Barnett, where a buffet dinner was served. Carols were sung, games were played and gifts were exchanged at an evening that will be long remembered.
Members of AAUW who wish to volunteer to spend time individually or with a group participate in the program by mentoring one or two girls from AVID to encourage them to continue seeking a college education and engaging them in social and educational events.
Scholarships have been awarded annually to girls in the program from money raised by the annual Country Garden Tour of Fallbrook held in May.
