Birthday Celebrations – Each month members who share the same birthday month gather to celebrate their birthdays and to become better acquainted.  Celebrations can be lunch, dessert, happy hour, or whatever your group agrees on for that month.

Details of trips will be announce din the AAUW-WHC newsletters and emails.

When possible, all of the events will be scheduled for the first Tuesday of the month. The time will vary pending the locations. The group will carpool when the meetings are not held in a member’s home. Contact Susan Boone for a calendar or potential events or to be listed for notifications of meetings.
