Authors Luncheon : May 20, 2017

Dear Beach City Members,

As we stand at the beginning of our new year, Kathy and I would like to take a minute to say how grateful we are to be leaders in THIS branch.

The state recently reported that California branches have been losing members slowly over the past many years.  We have a lot in common with many of them, but what makes us stand out? We think it is that everyone in our branch rolls up their sleeves and helps whenever needed.

I know I waited until I retired to look for ways to give back to the community, and always had a soft spot for AAUW, especially after I found out that Eleanor Roosevelt (I’m an Eleanor BUFF) had been a member.  However, young people today look for opportunities to give back to their communities, and I think AAUW Beach Cities is doing an outstanding job.

I also wanted to mention that after visiting our nation’s capital, I am very much energized to do my part.  And you won’t want to miss my special video.

Sincerely, Kathy and Dayla (Dayla reporting)

December Message From Co-Presidents Dayla and Kathy

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 February 4 (10 am at Manhattan Beach Community Church). You will have the opportunity to meet Dr. Lisa Lubow. Lisa is a professor at Glendale College 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 current state of Climate Change.

Have a Happy New Year and come visit with old and new friends on February 4, 2017 – the start of a great 2017 for AAUW Beach Cities!

Kathy and Dayla
