Welcome to the Somerset Hills Branch of AAUW

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.

Somerset Hills AAUW Program – April, 2016

The Garden State: Where Ideas Grow” by Linda Barth.

M&M’s, solar panels, transistors, flexible film and Graham crackers are but a few of the useful and unique creations from the minds of Garden State residents. Not to mention the 1,093 patents issued to Thomas Alva Edison. Learn about the many inventions and innovations that came from the minds of Garden State people.

Join us for an interesting talk on Tuesday, April 12th, starting at 7:00pm at the Bernards Township Library. Prior to the program, light refreshments will be served starting at 6:30pm. The meeting is free and open to the public. Encourage your friends to attend. Bring your mug to spare the environment from disposables!
