In the Time of COVID

2020 will be a memorable year!  Like all organizations, AAUW Eau Claire is navigating the challenges of managing in the time of COVID.  Safety has been a primary concern leading us to cancel our usual in-person programs and fundraising events, such as the annual used book sale, and embrace the virtual space.   We are all Zooming!  Our board of directors’ meetings, state board meetings, and state public policy days have been using the Zoom video conferencing platform.

In this important election year, AAUW Eau Claire has been collaborating with the League of Women Voters – Greater Chippewa Valley in educating citizens about current issues and voting procedures.  As we marked the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, we must support women’s rights to have a voice in our democracy.

 

Where are all the STEMinists?


Learn about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) initiatives and how it Impacts girls’ learning in the Chippewa Valley.  Presenters: Jen Peck, Educational Consultant for CESA 10 & Laura Fleming, UW Madison physicist.

May Celebration!

It’s Spring!  We are gathering to celebrate another successful year for AAUW Eau Claire.

Thursday, May 3

6 – 8 p.m.

The Volume One Gallery at the Local Store, 205 N. Dewey St.

As our AAUW Eau Claire branch moves into its 60th year of advocacy, education, research and philanthropy, we are delighted to have a unique group of women help us celebrate getting better with age.  Come and enjoy the wit and wisdom of ecWIT’s performance of “Alice in Elderland.”  They have received standing ovations and have had sold out performances locally. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to share the laughter in this intimate venue.

This event is not open to the public, but please feel free to bring a guest.  Refreshments will be served.

Also, annual membership dues ($85) are due soon.  Save some postage and bring your checkbook to the meeting.

ecWIT (Eau Claire Women in Theater) is a group of area women with backgrounds in education, theater and performance, who use the art form, Dramatic Reader’s Theater, to tell stories.  “Alice in Elderland” is an original script written by ecWIT’s own Debbie Brown.  Enjoy each character’s sharing of ideas that all of us might choose to remember on our own aging journeys.

There is no admission fee for this performance, but free-will offerings will gladly be accepted to help raise funds for ecWIT to acquire some sound equipment.
