AUTHORS’ LUNCHEON CANCELLED
We are saddened to have to cancel our 2020 April Authors’ Luncheon. This is a difficult time for all and the decision was not easy. The most important thing is that everyone stays safe and healthy. We have an important role to play to help stop the Covid-19 virus from spreading. State and National guidelines suggest that no events of greater than 10 people be held for the next eight weeks but no one can predict how long this will last. The good news is that the Authors have agreed to return for our April 2021 Authors’ Luncheon.
Every year, AAUW Easton Branch awards scholarships to deserving graduating senior women and to women whose college career has been interrupted and now wish to return to college.
Since this event is our only fundraiser and the funds raised add to our Scholarship Fund, we do hope that you will consider a donation to the Scholarship Fund in lieu of participating in the 50/50 raffle, silent auction or basket raffle.
