“Be the Key” Event

Twelve AAUW members attended the Decade to Doorways “Be the Key” cocktail reception at the Downingtown Country Club, either as helpers and/or participants, learning more about the homeless program in Chester County. Three AAUW members greeted participants, and handed out name tags and information packets. In addition to the check-in table, Cathy Palmquist provided floral arrangements and baskets for the response cards, with back-up provided from Carol Barkovsky. Mary Smith and others helped with clean-up after the event. Photos shared with the D2D staff the next day, prompted Dolores Colligen, Assistant Director of the Chester County Department of Community Development, to express appreciation for the AAUW “Super Stars!”  (Note: Decade to Doorways is our branch’s Gateway to Equity project for this year, so members are providing assistance to D2D throughout the year in a variety of activities.)
