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.

Personal Emergency Preparedness
Featuring
Cliff Buxton,
San Ramon CERT Instructor and Emergency Management Specialist

Curl up with your pizza from Mountain Mike’s and tune into this informative Zoom program
about how to prepare for a serious emergency.

The presentation will be based on an all-hazards approach with an emphasis on earthquakes. We will learn the whys and hows of effectively facing emergency situations using a commonsense multi-stage approach: preparation, response, recovery, and mitigation. There will be time allotted for questions at the end of the presentation.

Our speaker will be Cliff Buxton, a California Office of Emergency Services Emergency Management Specialist and State Outreach Instructor currently serving in the City of San Ramon Police Department’s Office of Emergency Management. He’s a San Ramon Valley CERT Instructor and Area Leader; he also serves on the San Ramon Valley HeartSafe Committee as an American Heart Association Basic Life Support Instructor.

A Zoom link will be sent to all members a few days prior to the scheduled meeting time.
