Michelle Douglass, Marion Ingram,  Dottie Pearson and Suzanne Pelkaus  were invited to attend the September meeting of the Cape May County Advisory Commission on the Status of Women to explore how we might collaborate.  Marion presented the history of AAUW and our chapter in particular. Dottie covered our current activities including our change to a 501c3 charitable organization, our Second Chance Scholarships and our work with ACCC on mentoring, COMPACT, and possible STEM programs. Michelle spoke about the TechTrek 2015 camp, our plans for Tech Trek 2016.  The Commission meets on the first Thursday of the month at 5:30 pm at the Old Court House in Cape May Court House and visitors are always welcome to attend.  Their mission statement and ultimate goal is to enhance the quality of life and position of the women and girls in Cape May County”


Heartfelt Shout Out to Sturdy Savings Bank!

AAUW Cape May County Branch is so pleased to once again have the support of Sturdy Savings Bank. In early February we received a generous donation to support our work to provide consistent financial assistance and mentorship to three women returning to school and meeting strong criterion through the Marion MacEwan Second Chance Scholarship. Hats off to our, community partner, Sturdy Savings Bank! And a special thanks to Meg Tornetta, one of their leaders for meeting with us. We look forward to a long term relationship.


CapeBank Charitable Foundation
True Friend of Second Chance Scholarships!

CapeBank Foundation is not only continuing its support of the work of AAUW/CMC Branch but also generously doubling its contribution in 2015. Chick Pinto, Executive Vice President, states, “Please accept this contribution with our best wishes and thanks for all you do for our community.” We are proud of this great partnership and ask that all members please take time to personally express their gratitude to representatives of CapeBank.


National Women’s History Month

March 1 marks the start of National Women’s History Month, and AAUW has strong ties to this annual celebration of women history makers. AAUW is an established historic organization that has helped — and continues to help — women make history. The AAUW Cape May County committee is forming now. All members are invited to join this project, please contact marion.ingram@comcast.net.
