Branch Meetings

Unless otherwise specified, branch meetings are held in the dining room of First Baptist Church, centrally located on Charlotte Street just south of I-240.  Parking is plentiful and free. Meetings held at the church always have lunch available for participants at a cost of $12. However, anyone can attend without having lunch and therefore at no charge. Meetings begin at 11:30 am and feature a speaker on a topic of general interest to the membership. Details below.

Reservations:  To reserve for any of these meetings, call Susan Grabel 828-505-3826 (H) or email at susangrabel2@gmail.com . Pay for lunch when you arrive. Members who reserve for lunch but do not attend still owe the $12 cost of the lunch since AAUW has to pay for all lunches ordered.
