Welcome to a 2012! A New Year always means resolutions … I hope your first resolution for 2012 will be to get involved in AAUW – whether that is attendance at meetings, donations to the San Juan Endowment, participation in the books club, the movie group, Great Decisions, the International Women’s Issues discussion group, serving on the planning committee for the fundraiser or even just commenting, sharing and “liking” our posts on Facebook.
Our first big event of 2012 is the presentation on human trafficking in Puerto Rico on January 19th. This is a really important meeting: Human trafficking DOES exit in Puerto Rico. That it is right under our noses may be a surprise. Don’t miss it. Bring everyone you know and especially invite young people – high school students – this is a problem that affects every generation in our society.
Also, be sure to stay tuned for information about our luncheon meeting planned for March in celebration of Women’s History Month, and International Women’s Day.
We also are planning another “Perfect Pairings” dinner in May to raise money for the San Juan endowment of the Education Foundation of AAUW (our scholarship fund).
In between these big events, we will continue with our schedule of monthly programs, cultural outings and interest groups.
A resolution to get more involved – and all these options for doing it – It’s home run!
