As mentioned in the branch email that was sent out earlier this month, instead of having a lunch for the branch this January, the Board decided to support the Women’s March this coming Saturday, January 20.
The time of the “March On Fairbanks” is now 11 am to 1 pm. Ritchie will have the AAUW Banner. Anyone marching please meet Ritchie at 10:45 am at the Lend Lease Monument and to dress warmly. If someone wants to participate but does not want to march, they can distribute cookies/hot drinks (need two people) at the Hub and one siting at the group information table at the Venue. Contact Rita Osborne for more information, firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is the information we received from the organizers:
Rally will take place from 11-1pm at Golden Heart Plaza, downtown on 1st ave. The Venue, Tap House, and The Hub are generously supporting local nonprofits providing tables for local nonprofits to share their work and for folks to warm up.
11-Noon – March thru downtown
12-12:20 – Rally
12:20 – Group Photo
12:20-1 – Network with Local Nonprofits at 2nd Ave businesses.
