Maryette sent me the words to one of the songs written by the Stairwells for our May meeting:

We’re celebrating A A U W (to the tune of Seventy-six Trombones)
It’s made education a priority,
The support and encouragement
For women shown throughout the years
Has helped them make the most of their degrees.

Eighteen eighty one, was the year that it all began
And in eighty-two it really gathered steam
Marion Talbot led the charge to give women a voice
Ultimately, she realized her dream

Op’ning doors for girls and women ’round the world
Breaking through barriers of gender, race and creed,
Promoting lifelong education, equity
Diversity, helping all girls succeed

Providing necessary funds to pave the way
For civil rights, health care and reforming policy,
Fostering empowerment
Philanthropy and good intent,
All make for a fine society

 

We’re celebrating A A U W
It’s made education a priority,
The support and encouragement
For women shown throughout the years
Has helped them make the most of their degrees.
