AAUW Warner Robins, GA Branch

  1. 1. Breaking Through Barriers for Women and Girls
  2. 2. Chartered in 1962, the Warner Robins Branch has a long history of service Eleanor Granum to the community 1962 and active participation in local, state and national issues.

  4. 4. Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) Celebrity Reads Equity Project (GRITS) Book Fair
  5. 5. Since 1973, the Warner Robins Branch has partnered with RIF to provide FREE books to children in the public schools of Houston County, with the children always having a choice of books from which to select.
  6. 6. The goal of the RIF program, founded by Mrs.. Robert McNamara in 1966, is to teach children that reading really is FUN. We have distributed over 70,000 books to more than 20,000 students.!
  7. 7. Twice during each school’s three year RIF cycle, a Celebrity Read is planned featuring local celebrities - this event is as popular with the readers as it is with the students!
  8. 8. The Warner Robins Branch Equity project, the brainchild of branch member Jane Winston, is an after school reading group for fifth grade girls. The branch provides books, refreshments, brightly colored T-shirts, and leadership for a month to two schools a year. If a movie has been made from the book , it is typically watched during a fifth meeting. The hope is that the schools will continue this popular project on their own.
  9. 9. This fall (2010) marks the 45th year that the branch has held a sale, which is our only fund- raiser. It is the source of funds for our local projects RIF and GRITS, and national level ones such as EF and LAF. Blue collection barrels are put out in the community in May.
  10. 10. Sorting and Pricing of books from May until the sale in November.

  12. 12.  Award-winning Communications  Monthly Programs  State and National Meetings  Eleanor Granum Award  Alzheimer’s Walk  Cherished Children’s Golf Tournament  Individual Member Achievements
  13. 13. The Warner Robins Branch has moved from a traditional web site to a Wordpress content management system for easier updating. A non-techie can add content and update information. Corresponding Secretary Ann MacKay is the brains behind this technological advance!
  14. 14. The branch has been using the free Google Groups to provide instant communication to all members between meetings. It is used for reminders, calls for help, and announcements of community information. Files can be uploaded, photos can be shared, and different pages can be added for more content.
  15. 15. Now that all our members have an e-mail address, our monthly newsletter comes as an e-mail rather than as an attachment of a printed layout. We are using the web based http://www.mynewsletterbuilder.c om/ for the newsletter. The cost is less than what we spent in printing and postage costs. Articles contain links to other websites for more information.

  18. 18. Every year the Warner Robins Branch of AAUW requests nominations for our Eleanor Granum award to honor a woman or man who has shared time, energy, and knowledge through volunteer service to others in the Middle Georgia area (Houston and Peach counties). The award is given at the May branch meeting. Eleanor Granum is the Founding President of the Warner Robins branch. She and her husband raised their family here, and she has given volunteer service through the years in countless ways without regard to recognition or reward. We wish to recognize others who share Eleanor’s enthusiasm for assisting others, and who serve without recognition.

  21. 21. Each April Warner Robins member Carolyn Schomer (below right) organizes the Jean Coleman Golf Tournament to raise fund Cherished Children, a local Day Care Center that provides quality child care for working parents at a reasonable cost. The late Jean Coleman (below, center left) was instrumental in starting this center in the 60’s and was able to see it grow into the beautiful facility that it calls home today. AAUW not only supports this Fund raiser financially, but members help out with tasks on the day of the tournament.
