Since the AAUW Fallon Branch was first chartered in April 1941, our members have been dedicated to promoting community-focused educational endeavors primarily for women, but also for men. After disbanding the branch in 1949, a group of devoted women re-chartered it in 1964. Since that time, the branch has grown to 29 members with 2 student affiliates. The branch conducts several successful fundraising events throughout the year. Proceeds from these events fund three scholarships annually, one for a graduating high school student, one for a reentry person, and one for a continuing student:
- Annual Christmas Candy Sale – all branch members make, weigh, package, price, and sell a wide variety of candy including fudge, peanut brittle, toffee, and divinity.
- Christmas potluck lunch business meeting – attendees participate in a White Elephant Sale and Silent Auction.
- The branch also hosts two or three bridge tournaments throughout the club year.
- In April, the branch stages a Film Festival and Dessert Extravaganza.
Our meeting programs during the club year highlight local community service groups and community leaders. At the last meeting of the year in May, the branch honors a Community Woman of the Year, a Club Woman of the Year, and the scholarship recipients.
Interest groups include a book club that meets the third Tuesday of each month and a bridge club that meets on second Mondays.
Annual dues are $65 ($49 National, $9 State, $7 Branch), payable to AAUW Fallon and sent to AAUW Fallon Treasurer, 2928 Peachtree Road, Fallon, NV 89406.
