Last updated 7/31/2017 at Noon



FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) invites potential new members to its annual Open House Aug. 19, at 10 a.m. at the historic 1890’s vintage Palomares House and art garden, located at 1815 S. Stagecoach Lane.

This is an occasion to stroll the gardens and view the six art sculptures in place. A light complimentary brunch will be served, and the program will include presentations by various committee chairpersons highlighting the activities and endeavors of AAUW.

Some of the young women who have benefited from AAUW programs will make guest appearances. In addition to raising funds to assist young women with educational costs, established AAUW programs exist to interest them in careers in science and technology as well as training in the skills of speech making, all enabling them to reach their full potential by gaining access to educational and economic opportunities.

Fun special interest activities such as mahjong, book review groups and movie critique groups are in place for members. The upcoming open house is a chance to learn more about AAUW.

"The Open House is also a way to inform possible new members about the impact we have been able to make in the community and just what is available,” said Elizabeth Leader, president of the Fallbrook AAUW branch. “Further, membership provides an opportunity to advance equity, individual rights, and social justice for a diverse society. A substantial benefit of membership is not only that it offers an avenue through which to effect positive change, but also to do so with like-minded women who champion their ideas in an atmosphere of consideration and respect.”

Participation as a member is open to all women holding an associate or equivalent, baccalaureate, or higher degree from a regionally accredited institution. For further information, contact ymilton@gmail.com.
