Welcome to the Home of Redlands AAUW!
I want to welcome you to the website of the American Association of University Women Redlands Branch. It is my honor to be serving as president this year of an organization that began in 1881. The Redlands AAUW Branch has been in existence since 1947. The Branch provides support to the Redlands community and surrounding areas.
One of the Branch goals is to coordinate a STEM Conference at the University of Redlands and Mt. San Jacinto College for 8th grade girls each year. Speech Trek, Tech Trek, University-College Partnerships, Local Scholarships, AAUW Fund, Adult Literacy, Orangewood High School, Family Service Project, and the Nancy Yowell Memorial Scholarship are many of the activities slated for this year. Members of the Branch participate and volunteer their talents and time to making these events successful.
There are many Interest Groups that are active throughout the year. Our Branch meets once a month at the University of Redlands in the Casa Loma Room.
I hope that you will take some time to explore the website to learn more about us, our mission and strategic plan. I know that you will find this organization can be very satisfying as well as inspiring. Empowering women and girls is a core value that binds us together.
With Best Regards,
Patty Ahearn President 2017-18
September 19, 2017 – City of Redlands, Quality of Life Department You may have noticed that the first of three new Service Club Gateway monument signs has been installed on the corner of Redlands Blvd and Ford Street.
The Redlands Blvd/Ford Street sign project is the first of three signs and was relocated from Redlands Blvd. (1/4 mile west of Ford Street) for better visibility. The plan is to replace one sign per year as funds are raised.
The signs were design by STB Landscape Architects and constructed by Atom Engineering at a cost of $24,398, all privately raised funding. The project is being managed by the City of Redlands Quality of Life Department.
The Redlands City Council approved the service club sign design in March 2016. This initiated a fundraising campaign to fund the signs, which are all binge privately funded through service club donations.
There are three service club signposts in the City that showcase various non-profit service club organizations. The locations of these signs are:
● Redlands Boulevard, adjacent to Jennie Davis Park;
● Redlands Boulevard, approximately one quarter mile west of Ford Street
● Brookside Avenue, east of Price Street.
The current remaining signs are approximately 30 years old and are in need of replacement due to normal wear and tear.
