Soup Swap

                             Can You Believe it????
                        AAUW’s Annual Soup Swap
                             Saturday, February 8                        
                                         11:30 – 1:00
You’ve done this before, or certainly heard about  it!  The fun begins at 11:30 am, when guests show up with a gallon of delicious homemade soup, chili or stew.  We’ll enjoy a taste of each for lunch and take some home for the freezer. This is a great time of the year to take it easy and stock up on quick, warming prepared meals.
 
FUN FACT: Started by Knox Gardner and a friend in Seattle, Soup Swap Day became an unofficial holiday celebrated all over the United States in 2006. Today, the holiday (officially the 3rd Saturday in January) is celebrated by soup enthusiasts in many other parts of the world.
 
REMINDER: Bring containers or freezer bags.

Resnik Luncheon April 13, 2019

High school junior, their guests, school administrators, and AAUW members of the Harford branch are looking forward to the annual luncheon honoring high school juniors excelling in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math STEM). AAUW Harford Branch has honored young women for decades now with a special luncheon with a special recognition ceremony.

Each student receives a certificate from the branch as well as commendations from many State and County officials, many of whom attend to honor the girls in person. Each year a motivating speaker describes her experiences of hard work and success. The last two years the speakers have been daughters of members–daughters who were both formerly honored at this program and who have achieved high success as a result of their education and work in STEM areas. Look for updates describing the girls and the speaker soon.
