We started our branch in 1976 supporting AAUW in their mission of helping women advance in our society. We have provided support for local women and each other working together to address community needs, highlighting through programs local community services that help women. For over three decades we have provided annually scholarships to Century College graduates continuing their education. In 2019 we redefined ourselves and renewed our goals with a focus of helping members stay connected with AAUW and each other.
We are proud to be part of AAUW
