AAUW at HCC Student Fest 2024
Several SCC AAUW members visited with students, faculty and friends at the 2024 HCC Student Success Event, Tuesday, February 13, 2024 at the HCC campus.

Sally Dittman created a great game of questions and answers for our booth visitors!  The students indicated they learned a  lot, and of course they thoroughly enjoyed the prize, candy!  One of the questions was: Who is the first Female President of HCC?  Answer-Answer- Dr. Jennifer Wells China, PHD. 1st female President of HCC South Shore Campus. Our team had a great time reinforcing the mission of AAUW: The American Association of University Women (AAUW), officially founded in 1881, is a non-profit organization that advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, and research. The organization has a nationwide network of 170,000 members and supporters, 1,000 local branches, and 800 college and university partners. Its headquarters are in Washington, DC

General Meeting December 9, 2023 Tech Trek campers, now 8th graders, tell about their camp experiences.

Hospitality is a big part of every Sun City Center AAUW meeting.  This is our way of extending a comfortable setting for learning and networking!
 
This Saturday, was our annual meeting with Girls of the World, Apollo Beach, FL.  To add a personal touch to the meeting in honor of the girls attendance, Patty Barbaro, AAUW member made fresh, unique “Cake Pops.”   They were a big hit!

Summer 2023 Events
This past Tuesday we had a wonderful gathering with new members Peggy Hannon, Jacqueline Brown, Amy MacDougall, Mary Sadowski, and Laura Butler at Sue’s home.  Board members Orene Brown, Angie Maze, and Patsie Ginley attended as well.  Personal histories were shared and common connections were found.  Peggy and Laura discovered that they had both taught in Department of Defense Schools in the far east and knew some of the same people.  Small world! We all felt a common connection and want to do this kind of thing again.  See pictures below.

In February we expect to raise money for the fourth scholarship with the Pelican Players performing their mystery play, Murder at Flontrachet Vineyard

Mark your calendar for our January 14 , 2023 meeting when we will have the president of our local Campaign Against Human Trafficking, Lou Anne Rossdeutscher, speak to us about saving women from sex slavery, an unfortunate occurrence in the Tampa area.  January is the national month to highlight this problem and to seek solutions.

Happy Holidays to all!  In the holiday spirit, the Board voted to give four $1000 scholarships to women (at least 24 years of age) to attend Hillsborough Community College next year.  Thank you so much, Patsie!

Thank you to all those who donated clothing, cleaning supplies, gift cards, and money to Holiday Giving Day, sponsored by Girls of the World, Inc. I took all of them to Lea Manningham at her Girls of the World office right after our December meeting.
