Fall 2021

Dear UCSC Women's Club Members,

Fall is almost here! I look forward to seeing you soon.

Thank you to all who are keeping our Women's Club alive during the pandemic: the skeleton crew of board members who have continued to meet via Zoom, all who attended our lectures last spring, all who were involved with selecting the scholarship recipients and in filming their thank-you statements and in creating a delightful virtual spring luncheon, and all who have continued to support the Club by donating to the scholarship fund or in attending interest group activities. I call on you to help get the club up to speed as soon as we are able to meet in person again, hopefully in January.

The Board recently faced the reality that our annual Fall Gathering again has to be a virtual event. We hope you will log in on October 6 for a short program of entertainment and information and again on November 3 when we will hear from some past scholarship recipients. If you have any ideas for kicking off 2022, please contact me. As I mentioned, we have been operating with a skeleton crew of board members, and if we are to plan some enjoyable, long-anticipated in-person activities for next year, we'll need help. You don't necessarily have to commit to serving on the board; volunteers for planning an event are needed, too.

Laurie Salatich.

Interim President
UCSC Women’s Club
