Welcome to the Easton, PA Branch of AAUW!


For the most part, the AAUW year is from July 1 to June 30. Most branch  interest groups do not meet over the summer and branch officers get a well deserved rest. Work does take place behind the scenes however so check back occasionally to see if there are any updates on what AAUW Easton Branch is planning.

Have a wonderful and relaxing summer and see you in September.


            Congratulations to our scholarship recipients and to our branch members.

Evening at the Williams Center
Thursday November 10, 8pm
Ensemble Basiani

In repertoire spanning the seventh to 13th centuries, Ensemble Basiani embodies a vocal tradition unique to the Republic of Georgia. The 12-member, all-male choir of the Tbilisi Holy Trinity Cathedral Church are practitioners of a complex, three-voice polyphony that weaves surprising harmonies, melodic yodeling, and pristine intonation to deliver a celestial sound. With a vast canon of sacred, folk, dance, and love songs that traverses their colorful country—from the mountainous north, to the eastern Kakheti region, to the Black Sea in the west—Ensemble Basiani’s music is the most captivating in the world.

Tickets are $30. A portion of each AAUW ticket goes towards local scholarships. Spouses and friends are welcome. Please reserve tickets by October 31st.

Please send reservations by October 31st to: Rosemary Baker. Make checks payable to: AAUW Easton Branch.


Fix Harrisburg Campaign
October 18th, 7 pm
Palmer Library

Michael Skros, a speaker from Fair Districts PA, will be presenting information about the FIX Harrisburg campaign and Reforming the Rules that make it so easy for bills to never reach a vote. He will explain how current unfair rules allow committee chairs to block broadly supported bipartisan solutions from getting to a vote. He will address the need to reform the rules in Harrisburg and he will discuss ways that organizations like AAUW Easton Branch and individuals can advocate for change. This is a public education program and open to the general public.

Bring your questions and bring friends.
