Our full Branch meetings take place monthly. All Branch members are welcome to attend, and interested non-members are also invited.
We generally meet the third week of the month. The business meeting takes place in the morning, followed by a brown bag lunch at noon — with tea, coffee, and dessert provided — and then a lecture or presentation.
This month’s Branch meeting will take place on Thursday, Nov. 15, 10:30 a.m. board meeting, 12:30 p.m. program, Our Lady of Grace, 29 Shelter Rock Rd., Manhasset. We will view a video of past fellows’ speeches and enjoy a celebratory reception in honor of our donations to the AAUW Funds program. All are welcome. Please contact Janet at 516-932-5091 for more information.
