An ad hoc committee under the leadership of Amanda Welvaert and Stephanie Owyoung and with the assistance of some more seasoned members, Bup Greenwood, Martha Rees, Cece Royal, new member Priscilla Neilsen, and Deb Cubberley presented “Ladies Night with a Cause”. This Friday night event aimed to attract younger women.

The purpose was to provide an opportunity for younger women in the community to congregate, enjoy themselves, work on a community project, and learn
about AAUW.

The community project consisted of creating craft boxes for use by CASA representatives.

 It was, by all accounts, a successful evening. There was lots of camaraderie and fourteen craft boxes were produced and subsequently delivered to the Child Advocates’ office. This ad hoc committee has yet to determine what the sequel to this event will be, but one is anticipated.
