The McLean Area Branch of the American Association of University Women invites members and interested persons to an open house Sunday at 2:30 p.m. at the McLean Community Center, 1234 Ingleside Ave., McLean.

At the open house, visitors will be introduced to the many Special Interest AAUW Groups, such as Around Town, Bridge, Current Events and Great Decisions Discussions, International Coffee and Cultural Exchange and Literature Groups. They will also learn about volunteer opportunities at the Pimmit Center, as well as working with middle and high school girls in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) programs, and AAUW Lobby Corps.

AAUW’s mission is to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research. Recipients of the McLean Branch AAUW local scholarships attending George Mason University and Trinity College will tell their stories at the open house.

The group’s book sale fundraiser last week brought in $35,000 for such efforts.
