Happy 60th birthday AAWE!
60 Years of Children’s Activities
In a statement in France Soir, our founder Phyllis Michaux summarized a mission goal for AAWE:
Faire connaître à nos enfants la vie américaine….[en leur apprenant] les coutumes et les fêtes
américaines…..ils connaîtront l’essentiel des constitutions des deux pays.
Remember, in those days, there was little available either in English or about American culture, so AAWE filled this gap. This was a great attraction then – and now – to being an AAWE member. And who better to meet this challenge than teams of American women who, it is well known, can organize anything with success.
