Welcome to the Lower Conn Valley (CT) Branch of AAUW!

AAUW Holiday Gathering/Program

Date:  Wednesday, December 12, 2018
Place: St. Ann’s Episcopal Church
Old Lyme, CT
Time:  7:00  PM

“Winter came down to our house one night quietly  pirouetting in on silvery-toed slippers
of snow.   And we were children once again.”
Bill Morgan, Jr.

The days/seasons are speeding by and “Mother Nature” has already given us a hint of snowy days to come but  now it is our time to be distracted and celebrate all the wonderful, exciting activities that fill our calendars this special time of year.  So mark your calendars and join all your fellow AAUW  friends for our annual “Holiday Gathering” to be held at St. Ann’s Church in Old Lyme on the evening of December 12th at 7:00 P.M.

Back by very popular demand, we will be excited to welcome Steve Dedman and an accompanying vocalist,  to provide the entertainment for the evening. Steve’s group’ the “Plywood Cowboy”, was born in the CT River Valley in 2015 and continues to expand nationally. The band has  opened for the Grammy-nominated act Yarni, as well as, for the United States Poet Laureate Billy Collins. In 2018, Plywood Cowboy won the CT Folk Festival Band competition and their second album, “Blue Skies” is lined up for a Grammy consideration.

So come warm your hearts and souls and join us for our holiday festivities. Also, please remember to  bring an appetizer to share, and a new/unused item to be used for the “Chinese Auction.” Again, this year the proceeds will go to benefit  AAUW’s LAF fund     ( the Legal Advocacy Fund).
See you all on December 12th!!!
