May Membership and Awards Meeting
Let’s Talk About Books
Our July meeting is schedule for July 19, at 7 pm. Our book selection is A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving.
At our July meeting we will have the opportunity to lobby for our suggestions for next year, but the vote of the group will determine if it makes the list. We need 11 titles since we do not meet in August. When considering your suggestions (a maximum of three) we ask that it be readily available at the library or in paperback. If you send me your suggestions with a short blurb about the book, I will compile the list and send to all before the meeting so you can be contemplating your choices. Here are links to the Master Book List so you can see what we have already read. Let me know if you have any problems. Link to Master list by title. Link to Master list by author.
Shortly before each meeting Terry Bratt or Carol Dabbs will send an invitation with the Zoom information. So, watch your email and come join the fun! Look forward to seeing you then.
See all our books for 2020-21 with a brief description of each on the Let’s Talk About Books page.

Time to Renew your Dues for 2021-22
It’s that time of year when AAUW will be asking you to renew your membership dues. While the amount of AAUW national dues has increased for the 2021-22 fiscal year to $62 (of which $59 is deductible), state dues remain $15, and branch dues remain $16 for the new fiscal year. This means that the total dues for an Arlington Branch Member will be $93 or $31 for a paid Life Member. Honorary Life Members (those who have paid dues for 50 years) do not pay dues to national, state, or branch.
Members will receive an email with a link to pay your dues online or by check in the next few weeks. If paying by check, please make your check payable to Arlington Branch AAUW and mail it to Mary Spatz by June 30, 2021. (Address in Membership Directory and in the email that sent you the link to this newsletter.)
Thank you for renewing your membership at this time. We look forward to seeing you either on Zoom and/or in person next year.
