End of Year Luncheon

Our end of year celebration was a huge success thanks to the help and support of many people. We enjoyed the company of 25 members and six scholarship recipients (past and current) plus guests. We acknowledged our leadership team, which serves the branch in many ways. We had the pleasure of meeting our newest member, Julie Plaisance, and we heard from Renaissance Scholar Michelle May, who shared a very touching, heartwarming message on the many ways AAUW has supported her. “Come Together” was a fun way to celebrate all our accomplishments during the past few months. Check out our June 2022 Newsletter for more photos.

In the words of Susan Walker-Christensen, “I just wanted to thank you all for your part in helping with this event! What a success and so many “happy” people. It was a fun day!”

The grand total raised for our local scholarship fund from the shredding event was $2,034! That is more than double the amount raised in previous years.

AAUW San Ramon wishes to express our gratitude for the generous support of the community.

During the program, Dr Bradley Hyman, professor emeritus of University of California at Riverside, spoke to our group about the current Covid-19 vaccines. As you can see from the Power Point slide he covered a variety of topics which members found to be enormously interesting, and now we have a better understanding of how the vaccines work, how safe they are, and what to expect.
