We hope all are well and safe during this pandemic.
Although COVID-19 disallows us gathering in person, AAUW of Cobb County continue to share a common mission and passion for education and equity.
Our Cobb members are very disappointed to not be able to participate in the Atlanta AAUW 2020 Bookfair at Perimeter Mall scheduled for this fall. The book sale has been cancelled. Cobb County members along with Atlanta and North Fulton members continue to volunteer together to provide local and national scholarships as well as local community-based activities. We will anticipate a return to a public book sale venue while focusing on internet sales in the interim.

BOOKFAIR UPDATES AND CELEBRATION:
Our milestone 60th AAUW Atlanta Bookfair was well received and heralded another successful partnership with Perimeter Mall and branch volunteers. Income and volunteer hours will be finalized soon. At this time, pending adjustments, it looks like Cobb volunteers contributed 20% of the hours. We don’t have final figures yet, but we should receive proceeds that will allow us to sponsor two scholarships through Chattahoochee Tech Foundation. There will be an AAUW Atlanta Bookfair Steering Committee Meeting on November 12th with final details and distribution of proceeds available at that time. We are so grateful to the many volunteer hours and many ways our membership contributes to this annual fundraiser. Thank you!
There will be a brunch on December 8th at Marlow’s Tavern in Dunwoody to share stories and celebrate a milestone book fair. The brunch is from 2 to 4 PM and all volunteers are invited to attend. Cobb volunteers should let Debbie Karvey know if they plan to attend at 678-520-2231 or firstname.lastname@example.org
