Dear AAUW Branch Members:

Please save the date of Tuesday, November 10th for our annual membership meeting to be held at Trinity Episcopal Church, Watertown, NY. The membership committee has put together a fabulous evening of Thanks-Giving. Bring a guest because new members receive half off the cost of a membership at this program ($37!!); social starts at 5:30 pm and program at 6:00pm.

Looking ahead! Trillium Music Center’s scholarship fund is the recipient of this year’s Gift of Giving! We’ll gather on Monday, December 14th at First Presbyterian Church, 403 Washington Street, Watertown (parking behind the church) at 5:30 pm for conversation and a small concert. A free-will offering will be accepted to put toward their summer music camps.

I hope to see you all November 10th!


Andrea Pedrick, branch President

Victims Assistance Center Presentation

Close to sixteen Jefferson County Branch members and their guests attended last night’s (Tuesday, October 20) discussion on domestic violence. Ella Mojica, advocate, presented to the group. She told the group about the services offered through the Victims Assistance Center, including, but not limited to: a rape crisis team; a safe shelter for women and children; a crisis hotline for suicide prevention, as well as, domestic violence; and a child advocacy center. The CAC as it is called, is a safe place for children to be interviewed by police, attorneys, and other advocates.  It was also mentioned that men are often victims of domestic violence, not just women and children. Although one out of four victims are women, and one out of seven are men. The Victims Assistance Center can be reached at 782-1855 or toll free: 1-866-782-1855.
