Join us in celebrating a momentous milestone: the 70th anniversary of the Owensboro Chapter of the American Association of University Women!
On March 21st, we invite you to join us for an evening of reflection, inspiration, and camaraderie as we honor seven decades of empowering women in education and beyond. Our special guest for the evening is none other than Lt. Governor Jacqueline Coleman, whose dedication to education and advocacy for women’s rights exemplifies the values we hold dear.
Lt. Governor Coleman will grace us with her insights and experiences, sharing her vision for a future where every woman has the opportunity to thrive and succeed.
In addition to our distinguished speaker, guests will have the opportunity to mingle and connect with fellow members and community members over light refreshments, celebrating the achievements of the past and looking forward to the opportunities that lie ahead.
Don’t miss this memorable occasion to honor our rich history and celebrate the accomplishments of the Owensboro Chapter of AAUW. Save the date and join us as we embark on the next chapter of our journey towards equality and empowerment. This event is free, but you must register at jvogel80@gmail.com

Our Branch celebrated by launching a self-guided walking tour of Elmwood cemetery in 2022. We honor nine local women whose lives continue to impact our community.  Those honored are Mary Hale Dean, Mildred Summers Lucas, Francis Harrison Hays, Jessie Howard, Addie Talbott, Emma Edwards, Katherine Rudy, Elisabeth Gasser and Louise Gasser Kirtley. Look for the brochure, available at Elmwood Cemetery, the Owensboro Museum of Science and History, the Daviess County Public Library Kentucky Room. “Women Breaking Barriers” is complete with map, profiles and recorded narrative QR codes. AAUW members are available to lead tours or you may explore on your own. In addition, our Owensboro AAUW Facebook page celebrated Daviess County women whose actions contributed to our right to vote, learn and participated fully in our community.
