The Oroville Chapter of the American Association of University Women is hosting a Women’s History Month Tea and Salad Luncheon, to benefit “Tech Trek”.
Tech Trek is an AAUW program that sends girls going into 8th grade to a week-long summer science/math camp at one of eight universities … where they experience “dorm life” and attend daily core classes in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. They also have the opportunity to meet women who are enjoying successful careers in those professions.
The benefit luncheon takes place on March 8th at 1:00 p.m. at the Trinity Presbyterian Church, 2350 Foothill Blvd. in Oroville. Tea will be served, as well as scones, a selection of more than a dozen delicious salads, and dessert.
The event will feature musical entertainment by Katy Ryan, Roxanne Eggan and Matthew Mitchell. Local anthropologist Merrily Stover has written a living history representation of Margaret Mead, one of the first to open the field of Anthropology to women, which will be portrayed by local actress Margie Maes.
The fundraiser will help provide scholarships for students who attend the Tech Trek camp at UC, Davis. Tickets are $20 each. Reservations can be made through any Oroville member of AAUW or by calling Joline Hibbert at 533-5577. ###
