Barbara Marder and Michelle Hauf,
Co-Presidents for 2018-19


By Barbara Marder and Michele Brillon Hauf

This year’s highly successful Book Sale is a wrap. Our
gross sales exceeded any former year; our net will be a
bonus for the scholarship funds this coming spring. We
all owe many thanks to Book Sale chairs Stacey Hilder and
Linda King for their endless hours of devoted work and
excellent leadership. Thanks to all the many, many
members who contributed from estate sales in the spring
through the 4th of July parade, collections in sun and rain,
sorting and packing for four months, unpacking and
stacking, helping customers during the sale days, and
finally making this year’s final clean-up the fastest, most
efficient ever. Of course, we also owe bottom line thanks
to EZStorage on Ritchie Highway and Philip Baum of
Fedder Mgmt. in Pasadena for their donation of space for
our books, as well as, to Lucia St. Clair Robson and Jeanne
Hawn who sacrificed garage space for the duration, to
Michele Hauf who stored estate sale books for several
months, and to Maggie Cullman who graciously accepted
overflow storage in her garage. The book business will
now take a well-deserved rest for a few months….though,
anyone hearing of a great estate sale willing to donate
unsold books can let Stacey or Linda know. Another year
will bring another book sale.

As we rest from our Thanksgiving feasts and begin the
holiday season, plan to spend a few hours with the
branch for our annual holiday luncheon on December 8th and/or one of the interest groups holding a meeting this
month. January will bring major prep for the legislative
sessions both in Annapolis and D.C. Stay tuned for
information on the bills AAUW and MLAW are supporting
and look for ways to help the cause.
Happy Holidays to all; we look forward to an exciting
