Palm Coast, FL – American Association of University Women (AAUW) Flagler hosted its monthly General Meeting on Saturday, December 11, 2021, at Cypress Knoll Golf and Country Club.

The branch members were delighted and highly impressed by the vocal talents of the Formality Singers who had been invited to perform holiday favorites.  The Formality Singers, a mixed-voiced chorus composed of students from Flagler Palm Coast High School, perform extensively throughout the community and at surrounding civic events. The Formality Singers Chorus and the Women’s Formality Singers Chorus have earned honors at the district and the state level music performance assessments.  This performing group, originally started by Alana Fitzgerald and continued under Amelia Fulmer, has been entertaining audiences for over 25 years.

Now, under the leadership of Ester Jackson, they eagerly share the joy of music while building a bridge between arts education, career, and the community.  Scholarship Chair Ellie Bozzone informed the students about scholarships awarded by AAUW Flagler to graduating seniors each year and encouraged the students to apply.

In the spirit of giving, AAUW Flagler Branch Co-President Marty Butler arranged for the branch to participate in the Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program this year.  The generosity of branch members was in full display as the cardboard box used to collect the toys was filled to overflowing.  The toys will be distributed to needy children in Flagler County

To round out the festivities, members participated in a Holiday Trivia game and an Ugly Sweater Contest.  Some of the contestants were quite creative in their garb.  The winner, Lorrie Blue-Angle, dug way back into her closet for a sweater that she actually wore during the 1980’s.

AAUW Flagler meets monthly September through May on the second Saturday of the month.  The branch actively works to fulfill its mission of advancing the education of women and girls in Flagler County and elsewhere.  New members are welcome.  For more information visit the AAUW Flagler website flaglercounty-fl.aauw.net or e-mail AAUWFlagler1984@gmail.com
