Yates AAUW Turkey Dinner Set for September 12
The Yates County Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) will hold its annual Turkey Dinner with all the trimmings on Thursday, September 12 at the United Methodist Church in Penn Yan. Chef Steve Owens is preparing the full-course meal, to be served from 4:30-7 p.m. Prices are $9 for adults and $4.50 for children under age 12. Takeouts are available.
Walk-ins will be limited. Advance-sale tickets are available from any AAUW member, or at Long’s Cards and Books.
Proceeds from the dinner will be used to fund the “Marcia Dugan Interrupted Studies Scholarship,” an annual award to a Yates County woman wanting to return to her academic studies. The Mission of AAUW is to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research. Its Value Promise is that by joining AAUW, you belong to a community that breaks through educational and economic barriers so that all women have a fair chance.
