Jacksonville Regional Branch January 2013 Newsletter

President’s Message

Greetings! I hope that this finds each of you healthy (successfully dodging the flu), warm and happy.

This month we will meet at Connie’s home for a planning and update session. Please bring your program suggestions and ideas. I would like to get our calendar set for the next few months.

We can also update our scrapbook. Connie has articles and pictures to add to our archives. If you are in possession of any of the scrapbooks, please bring them to the meeting or give them to someone who can bring them for you.

Looking forward to seeing you on the 28th!

– JoAnn

HOLIDAY SILENT AUCTION/FUNDRAISER: Treasurer Katharyn reports that we raised $102.00 at our holiday party last month. These funds support the AAUW Scholarship Fund at Coastal Carolina Community College. The silent auction is always a fun and painless way to raise money for a great cause. Last year’s scholarship recipient was a delightful young woman who made us proud. Partnering with CCCC has been a positive step for our branch in helping very deserving women further their potential.
