AWOL events are women-only events.
Saturday March 7th @ 6 PM – AWOL Dinner Outing – Join us at McCabe’s Irish Pub and Grill (739 Richmond Street) where we’ll enjoy some dinner and good cheer before heading out to the International Women’s Day Drag Show and Dance at the Polish Hall (80 Ann Street). Join us for the dance if you like. The two venues are a 7-minute walk apart so you may park once for the night! To join us for dinner, please send your RSVP to Kathleen @ email@example.com by Thursday March 5th. You might buy advance tickets to the dance event to avoid disappointment.
Saturday August 22nd @ 4 – 10 PM – AWOL 30th Anniversary Party!!! Join us for this amazing milestone party!!! Several hundred women have come through the doors of AWOL over the past 30 years. Some connections have led to long-term friendships, relationships, marriages and life enrichment. I mean that. People may wonder why AWOL still has a place in our community. I know from having been involved in AWOL since the very first gathering in Sept. 1990, that this group’s presence has offered a safe setting for many women over the years: some who have questioned their sexual orientation; some who have felt so alone without the support of family/friends for a variety of reasons; some who weren’t aware of resources/services that were available to them; etc. Its name includes “women” for a reason…it’s meant to include all those who identify as a woman, no matter where on the journey or pendulum one may be found. I still receive phone calls and emails from those who reach out to talk. And they are welcomed into the fold of AWOL with the hope that our group provides the safe setting in which conversation, friendship, and new-found interests/passions/adventures may be discovered and shared. It may be a tall order but it’s happened time and again. We hope that you may join us for this wonderful anniversary party to reminisce and make new memories. More details will be released closer to the date. We have a rain date set for Sunday August 23rd @ 1 – 6 PM. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to join us.
