It’s AAUW time again!  Our first meeting of this program year will be Saturday, September 10, at St. Andrews on the Sound Episcopal Church, 101 Airlie Road.

Coffee will be ready at 9:30 and our meeting will start at 10:00.

Our speakers will be Gayle Van Velsor and Margee Herring of the Girls Leadership Academy, the first all girls charter school in North Carolina.  There are Leadership Academies in some other cities.  The first one was in New York City and the concept seems to be very successful.  Please come and hear about it, as well as catching up on everyone’s news.
