AAUW is the oldest women’s organization in the USA. Our mission is to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, and research. We have general meetings and various interest groups. Our major fundraiser is our annual used book sale.
All members, even new ones, are encouraged to participate as board members, group chairs, convention attendees, and book sale workers, in order to get the most out of the AAUW experience.
Giovanna Musto will introduce us to St. Hubert’s Therapy Dog program
in Madison, New Jersey. She will be assisted by her certified dogs, Calico
and Mariah. Graduate dogs from this program visit, cheer, and comfort the
elderly and patients in hospitals, nursing homes, and other care facilities.
These dogs are in excellent health, and able to sit, stay, and follow all
commands. They are taught not to jump up on people and to remain calm
at all times.
Join us for an interesting evening with Giovanna and her two
beautiful therapy dogs on Tuesday evening, October 14. Refreshments begin
at 6:30 P.M. followed by the program at 7 P.M.
