AAUW Travelers.

NEW YORK – We are in the planning stages of the trip to Hyde Park and the Adirondacks areas. One decision made is the trip will be the first part of October, before the 15th. To determine the costs (transportation and accommodations) we need to know how many may be interested. A commitment response is not needed yet, just an interest.

If interested in the Russia and/or New York trip, please email either Sue Stoll or Patty Smart for more information.

2017 – 2018 Season  The Dearborn Symphony is a great experience and a fundraiser for our branch. Season tickets are $130 for six tickets or $30 per ticket. Select your show(s) and mail your selections and check to Jane Russ. Interested in dinner reservations before the concert? Contact Sharon Vollmar at 734 775-8530. Let’s have some fun and raise some funds.
