On behalf of the Oakdale- Riverbank-Escalon Branch of AAUW, we thank all who supported our annual film fund-raiser Oct. 16. We raised money to send eight to 10 seventh- grade girls to Tech Trek, a science and math camp at California State University, Fresno. These girls gain a university experience, living for a week on campus with others their age and learning about science and math through hands-on activities. These girls may then be eligible to apply for our AAUW college scholarships. We are encouraging young girls to follow their dreams.
The generous support from our communities makes all of this possible.
