Summer Breakfasts:
Camaraderie and Conversation

Summer Breakfasts are in full swing and will continue throughout the summer every Wednesday morning at 9:00 a.m. at Panera Bread in Lake Sumter Landing.

 

A small group gathered on June 5. The conversation was so engaging that we were there 'til close to lunchtime!

Join Us This Wednesday!

We welcome all visitors.

Archive Project Makes Progress

For the last several months, some members have been working to digitize the Branch's historical documents and materials. Efforts are beginning to bear fruit...actually, low hanging fruit.

Some of the easiest documents to post on our website soon are past issues of our Branch newsletter. Now you can visit our Newsletter Archives to view newsletters back to the 2011-12 program year. Soon you'll be able to view newsletters that go back to the beginning of our Branch. 

When the archives project is completed, we will have official Branch documents in the Members' Pages and a Scrapbook highlighting Branch activities and achievements that will be accessible to the public.

So, stay tuned as we continue to scan and post historical documents and artifacts.

Scholarship Update

Lake/Sumter AAUW Scholarship Committee is pleased to announce our scholarship recipients for the 2024-25 academic year. We had applications from Lake Sumter State College (LSSC) and Beacon College. Thanks to our fundraising efforts and individual donations to the Scholarship Fund, we will award scholarships to four outstanding women as they work to complete their baccalaureate degrees.

Three of the four new recipients and two of the three continuing recipients came to the branch Spring Luncheon on May 4 and were presented to the membership. Pictured below is the "Scholarship Table" at the luncheon, which included Scholarship Committee members as well as some of this year's awardees. For more about these young women, visit our Support page.
