AAUW Soup Supper

Jan 02, 2017 01:50PM, Published by Elena Hutslar, Categories: Community




The Pleasant Hill-Martinez Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) holds their annual Soup Supper with a presentation by retired DVC oceanography instructor Dianna Vanni Matthias. The public is invited to attend for $10. This is annual January event is presented with an international flavor.

Dianna's presentation, "Plastic Pollution Around Oceanic Islands," covers her six summers spent as a volunteer on Midway Island in the Pacific Ocean. Since today's oceans contain a large collection of plastic waste, Dianna has cleaned up plant and plastic pollution on the island for several years. She will show slides and describe her work.  Dianna grew up in Martinez, went to UC Berkeley, and has a Master's and PhD in Zoology.  She has also done coral reef monitoring and bird banding.  

  Come enjoy hearty homemade soups, bread and butter, coffee, tea and desserts. Bring a soup bowl and soup spoon. Dinner starts promptly at 6pm to allow ample time for the presentation, which runs until 9pm.  

 The AAUW is open to anyone with at least an associate’s degree. Our focus is on advancing equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.  Check out our local branch website at aauw-ph.org.  Please RSVP by January 13 to Marge Munger at (925) 687-9773, or SarahJoy Haynes at (925) 372-9211.
