UF celebrating Women's History Month
The University of Findlay is celebrating Women’s History Month 2015 with multiple activities, including a public American Association of University Women celebration on Monday, March 16.
Titled “AAUW in Findlay: A 65th Anniversary Celebration,” the community event will take place at 7 p.m. in the University’s Malcolm Dining Room in the Virginia P. Gardner Fine Arts Pavilion. Past and present AAUW members will discuss their fondest memories of the organization and what the group has meant to them. Findlay Mayor Lydia Mihalik has issued a proclamation celebrating AAUW’s contributions to the community, and it will be presented.
Throughout the month, a book sale is being held at the University’s History House, 112 Howard Street (behind East of Chicago Pizza), from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. Proceeds will benefit the Nickel Family Fund that was created after student Abbey Nickel’s mother died from a terminal illness. Selections represent an eclectic mix of pop fiction, travel books and academic books. Also for sale are CDs, DVDs and VHS tapes. Every item is being sold for 25 cents. There are also posters and teaching materials that are being given away.
On Monday, April 20, Anne Beekman, assistant professor of graphic design, will speak about “Women and Advertising” at 7 p.m. Monday, April 20 in Malcolm Dining Room. The University community is invited to attend.
