February AAUPW Events

February Meeting
This month we will hear from fellow member Kristy Koth who will talk to us about her experiences at the Women’s March in Washington on Jan. 21, 2017. She took part with her mother Joey, who has been involved in the women’s rights movement for years. Says  Kristy, " DC was amazing and I cannot wait to tell you all about it! It was such a tremendous experience."  

Here is Munich we also had a fabulous turnout with 25 AAUPW members who marched Saturday and have their own experiences of this historic event to share as well. Afterwards, there will be ample time to see where the discussion leads us.

Girls Night Out (GNO) goes bowling
January 24th was GNO Bowling Night. Members had a great time at Bavaria Bowl. After having dinner and watching the league teams, it was our turn to try out our skills. I won’t share the scores, but everyone had fun, so maybe we will do this again.

Stay tuned for information about the next GNO event!

Good deed of the day! - "Brot am Haken"
A long-term AAUPW member reports, "if you feel like brightening someone's morning.. check one of the 16+ Munich bakeries which permit customers to offer needy fellow munchers a free cup of coffee, loaf of bread, or Pretzel, et cetra. The initiative is called "Brot am Haken" in which certain bakeries basically offer a place to donate money, so that someone who can't afford their wares will receive free bread." Nice idea! Pay it forward!   http://www.brot-am-haken.org/
