Hello to all our wonderful Beach Cities Members and Friends! We hope you all have had time to enjoy the holidays with family and friends, reminisce about past memories and make new ones. Kathy had fun buying toys to donate to children in the South Bay. With her grandchildren now in their pre-teens and teens, it was fun to just pick toys rather than search for “The Toy”!
Dayla always celebrate the holidays after December 25—allowing for all the in-laws to get “first dibs” on the actual day. We’re also looking forward to seeing you all at the first Beach Cities meeting in 2017 on January 7th (10 am at Manhattan Beach Community Church). You will have the opportunity to meet Betsy Butler. Betsy served in the California State Assembly prior to becoming the Executive Director of the California Women’s Law Center. She has been a tireless advocate for fairness and equal rights for women and girls and is a terrific speaker. You’ll enjoy the challenge of hearing about her experiences and current activities and she will be glad to answer your questions about the most recent election and/or where we go from here. Have a Happy New Year and come visit with old and new friends on January 7th – the start of a great 2017 for AAUW Beach Cities! Kathy and Dayla
