On Thursday, May 13, the New Canaan Branch of the American Association of University Women will celebrate the 40th anniversary of its founding with a gala tea. The event will be held at the New Canaan Historical Society, 13 Oenoke Ridge, from 3 to 5 p.m.

AAUW invites all current and former members to attend. They hope that as many former members as possible will be able to attend. If any members have such contact information, forward it to Ethel Shafter at RLShafter@aol.com.

Patricia Brooks, veteran restaurant reviewer and author, will provide a historical retrospective of the branch with some very interesting memorabilia and photographs. The Branch Award for Woman of the Year will also be presented during the event.

Following the tea, there will be a dinner at the Roger Sherman Inn, 195 Oenoke Ridge.
