Zoom in on Thursday, January 19th at 7PM with our guest speaker and author, Susan Alcorn, who hopes to encourage and inspire you to get outdoors and walk, hike, or saunter. Susan will talk about how she became a long-distance hiker in her forties and how that led to writing about her hiking and traveling adventures throughout the world. Becoming a more serious hiker also brought her into the hiking community, where she learned about, and was inspired by, others to go farther afield.

Susan’s most recent book, Walk, Hike, Saunter: Seasoned Women Hikers Share Tales and Trails, is based on interviews that she had with 32 women hikers, all 45 and older. Susan will tell why she decided to write this book, how and why she selected the women, and her writing process.

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.

San Ramon Branch Members: Chris White, Michelle May, Marsha Froines, Jo Anne Barron, and Lois Kamoroff
