members strong, the Lodi branch AAUW was chartered in 1959 and
incorporated in 1962. Membership is open to all persons who hold
associate or baccalaureate degrees from accredited colleges or
universities and to graduates of foreign institutions. This branch has
been responsible for the establishment of the Family Life Education
program in Lodi public schools, the Friends of the Lodi Library, the
Lodi office of the Women’s Center of San Joaquin County and a
“school-to-work educational guide for all middle school students and/or
incoming ninth graders for Lodi Unified. We also provide public forums
for candidates for public office. As a mission-based organization, we
believe in supporting education by sending middle school girls to Tech Trek and raising money for scholarships. We strongly support the national Education Foundation Fund (EF) and the Legal Advocacy Fund (LAF) through annual fundraising to help women.
Happy 55th Birthday, Lodi AAUW! Barbara Peck (l), Mary Ann Cox Martin, Julie Wolf (back), Sheila Dunn, Janice Cobb (back), Becky Hamner, and new member Susan Wycoff.
