Branch Activities

We are an engaged and energetic group who enjoy meeting, working, and socializing with each other. Our activities are planned and organized by informal interest groups. New groups can be proposed by members at any time.

Playing bridgeBridge Group

Meets the fourth Monday of the month for a social, noncompetitive game. Everyone is welcome even if you only know a little about bridge. Contact Barbara Bentson for more information and for locations.

Diversity Book Group

Meets on the third Wednesday of the month, except when there are conflicts with holidays or other events. Check the current newsletter or Book Group page for details. Books, emphasizing the diversity of cultural experiences, are selected by the member whose turn it is to facilitate the discussion. Everyone is welcome to join the book group or to attend a specific discussion.

School Volunteers

Some AAUW branch members are volunteers in the elementary schools of the Edmonds School District.

Consider volunteering at your neighborhood school or at a school with specific needs. The following are possible ways you may help: checking out library books, listening to a child read, assisting with an art or science lesson, math tutoring, helping children proofread their writing, putting up a bulletin board, or assisting in the first aid room. Whatever special skills you have would be welcomed. For more information, call or e-mail Sue Renhard, or stop by the office in your neighborhood school.
