AAUW Fort Wayne Branch Spring Membership Meeting/Brunch
Celebrate Our ‘Right to Vote!’
Saturday, May 8, 2021 9:30 am
Fort Wayne Country Club 5221 Covington Rd, Fort Wayne, IN 46804
Bring a guest or two when you attend our AAUW Branch Spring Brunch. Enjoy a delicious meal and catch up with your friends. You are sure to enjoy a hearty brunch of Quiche Lorraine, sausage, fruit, breakfast rolls, beverage, and ice cream balls rolled in pecans for dessert!
Since our December Brunch was cancelled, we are honored to have reschedule our featured speaker, AAUW Indiana State President, Marsha Miller. A passionate historian, she will present, “From Amanda to Zerelda: Hoosier Suffragettes Who Raised a Ruckus.”
Dressed in period costume, Ms. Miller will depict some of the struggles of key women in Indiana who helped get the Legislature to ratify the 19th Amendment. You will gain a whole new appreciation of the strength and determination of women and the need to protect our ‘RIGHT TO VOTE’!
Our Spring Brunch will also be an opportunity to ‘give back’ and help women in our community. The Saint Joseph Mission is providing a program to help single homeless women get back on their feet and into the community. Please plan to bring a household item to donate to the Saint Joseph Mission program. All items will be collected at our Brunch and donated to the women in the program who are working to regain their lives. (Examples of items needed: toilet paper, tissues, soap, household cleaning products, etc.)
