There is no disrespect or undue pressure accompanying this – we will try to determine that each member is indeed aware of the drive by mailing letters to members who do not receive email (or in some cases are so overwhelmed by it they don’t see everything). You will receive a mailing after March 1st, unless you have already responded. Checks should be made out to AAUW Scholarship Fund – Keene Branch. Please mail to: 56 Chapman Road, Keene, NH 03431
