LETTER FROM OUR CO-PRESIDENTS
Greetings! Spring is right around the corner, yes? One day it’s 75 degrees and the next day 40! It’s been a roller coaster of ups and down in our weather this year, but hopefully daffodils will be arriving soon in our gardens. We are looking forward to sunny days and lots of fun activities ahead. Our Cocktails and Conversation get-togethers in January and February have been great fun – thanks so much for joining us! It’s so nice to catch up and spend time with good friends and new members. At our branch meeting in February, we heard from the AAUW Maryland Vice President for Public Policy, Erin Prangley, who educated us on all the important bills that are relevant to women coming up for a vote in the current legislative session. Thanks, Roxann King and Vera Torrence, for arranging this program. We have a Smithsonian field trip, hosted by Mary McGrath and Christina Simkanin, coming up in March and another branch meeting in April. Our nominating committee has put together a superb group of new leaders for our Branch – check out their newsletter article on the next page. Also in March, our board will host an evening with our new members in order to give us all the opportunity to get to know each other on a more personal basis. So, lots of fun events going on… we hope you’ll join us and contribute your time and effort to this great organization!!
