Welcome to the Somerset Hills Branch of AAUW

AAUW (National) is the oldest women’s organization in the USA. The AAUW mission is to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, and research. The Somerset Hills branch of AAUW has general meetings and various interest groups. Our major fundraiser is our annual used book sale.

In order to get the most out of the AAUW experience, all members, even new ones, are encouraged to participate on committees, in group activities and as book sale volunteers.

Coming up in December: The Seeing Eye Story

Hear about the work of The Seeing Eye® — one of our well known local charities and this year’s Branch’s designated Holiday charity.

Meet Kathy and Paul Gould’s Hazel, 5, a retired Seeing Eye Breeding Dog and Celeste, 4 months, a puppy from Hazel’s last litter that they are currently raising. Celeste will return to The Seeing Eye® for guide dog training at about 14 months.  Kathy will talk about her 20 year experience as a Seeing Eye puppy raiser along with a Seeing Eye trainer who will demonstrate guiding skills with a trained Seeing Eye dog waiting to be matched with a blind person.  Kathy’s last puppy is currently at college allowing a blind student to attend and study with independence.
