Greetings Georgetown Members,
Welcome to the new year meeting in the downtown library person to person with the option of attending on Zoom. We have all endured the crazy weather the past few months but certainly enjoyed the cooler days. We are ready for fall weather, schools to begin, branch meetings with stimulating programs, study groups to entice us, and branch events to lure us to volunteer.
Speaking of Branch meetings, we will start with two options:
First, on the 11th you can attend the joint meeting with the Austin Branch at Norris Center to hear Amy Simmons, entrepreneur of Amy’s Ice Creams, tell how she went from being a Pre-Med student at Tuffs University to opening an ice cream shop in Austin, TX,
Second, on the 20th we will have a brief overview of the program presented at the joint meeting, for those who missed it with the same treat, but most importantly read in this newsletter to prepare yourself to vote on the proposed budget and the Strategic Plan.
Important Note: The Membership Coffee. Previously scheduled for August 28, has been postponed because of the increasing incidences of Covid. It will be combined with the Holiday Tea in December.
Our annual Duck Race, of 300 ducks floating down the river, will be early this year happening on Saturday, September 25, from 11:00 to 1:00 at the San Gabriel Park. Saturday, August 14, Lynne Hester, Pat Rehm, Mary Allen, Connie Munoz, and Judy Reinhart sold 53 tickets at the August Market Days with new member KayLynn Lyon taking 7 to sell. AAUW will share a tent with Senior University at Market Days on September 11 to sell Duck Race tickets and promote our organization. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (512) 345-5936 to sign up for a 2-hour shift between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 11.
As you have just read we are beginning a great year and hope to see you September 11th at 10:00 and/or the September 20th, 6:30 at the downtown library.
Judy Reinhart and Sharon Lesikar
Greetings AAUW Members,
We hope you are having a great summer and enjoying our cooler than normal weather with not many triple digit temps so far, but lots of rain and humidity.
Welcome to the 2021-2022 year where we will finally be able to have face to face meetings after over a year of branch, committees, and board meetings all by zoom. Some committee meetings may continue to be by ZOOM and maybe we can broadcast our branch meetings from the public library by ZOOM as well.
On July 9 th the board members met at the Berry Creek Country Club to get to know our new president,Judy Reinhart, who has been a Dual member for many years and Austin member since 1989. Our first official board meeting will be Tuesday, August 10th at the Georgetown Public Library in their Friends Room at 1:30.
While all board members are expected to attend, all members are welcome to attend as well.
Our annual August Membership Coffee will be held on August 28th in the Longhorn Room of the Retreat Center in Sun City, 1220 Cattleman Drive from 10:00-12:00. You are urged to attend and bring several friends who might be potential members with you. If you have not paid your 2021-2022 dues yet, this would be the perfect opportunity to do so.
Our first branch meeting, on Saturday, September 11th , will be a joint one with the Austin Branch to hear Any Simmons tell how she became an entrepreneur, establishing Amy’s Ice Creams thirty plus years ago. The meeting will be held at the Norris Center in Austin, at 2525 West Anderson Lane at Burnet Road. Lunch will be available for $30 and coffee, tea or water for $5. Following Amy’s presentation we will hand out samples of her famous ice cream. If we have a quorum attend this meeting we will conduct our business there, but if not we will probably have to meet at the Georgetown Public Library on Monday, August 20th at 6:30 in the Hewlett Room to take care of the business.
Our annual Duck Race will be held earlier this year on Saturday, September 25th at San Gabriel Park 11:00 – 1:00. Hopefully you will buy some tickets and come watch the 6 qualifying races and the final race for prizes.
Hope to see you soon,
Judy Reinhart & Sharon Lesikar
