The Tama-Toledo Area Branch of American Association of University Women (AAUW) is now taking orders for evergreen garland for the holidays. Again this year, they will not hang or take down garland for local businesses.
Garland will be available to homes and businesses and will be delivered. The garland will be brought to your home/business on Nov. 18.
It has enabled the AAUW to fund many programs / projects that benefit young girls, women and the community.
The continued High School Young Women of the Year has become a popular annual event that recognizes local Tama County High School seniors. South Tama Middle School girls who excel in math and science are also honored.
Another program supported by the Tama-Toledo Branch is "Latinas al Exito," which mentors 8th grade Hispanic girls.
This year 15 STC students will be invited to participate. Garland can be ordered by calling Trudy Koch, 641-484-3963.
