The Houston Women's Center will open Saturday,
January 6. We plan to have the Center open from 10 to
4 Saturdays and from 7 to 10 weekday evenings. Meetings will be permitted to continue past closing time
and task forces may use the building at any time.
Persons will be asked to sign up as Center "supervisors" for an evening or Saturday. A sign-up sheet
for January will be available at the December NOW
The "supervisor" will have the key to the Center
and the workshop. She/he will stay at the front desk
to be receptionist, librarian and the telephone
The Center will have a "work board" which will have
notes concerning work needing to be done, such as
addressing, typing, filing and cleaning. We will be
an equal employment opportunity employer. Anyone,
regardless of sex, race, age or ability, will be put
The Center is seeking feminist books and magazines
for its library. If you have feminist literature you
would like to share, drop it by the Center.
We are also soliciting office equipment. If you
know a possible source, please let me know(or pursue
it yourself). Donations will be tax deductible.
Initially we need desks, tables, chairs, file cabinets,
typewriters and general office supplies. Of course,
we will accept more exotic equipment or furniture,
such as rugs, projectors, etc.
Childcare will be another area needing volunteers.
We would like to provide childcare for all meetings
at the Center. Willing "babysitters" will be asked
to sign up. The person chairing a meeting will be
responsible for arranging for a child care person.
We also will need toys, books, and games for the
children. TV would probably be a blessing on crowded
nights. Bring your donations by the Center when it
opens, January 6.
For those who missed it, the cleaning and painting
were fun, probably because of the good company. Plan
to be in on the other projectr.
P.S. NOW 1973 dues should be paid by January. Pay
now and help us open the Center with everything complete
and the budget in the black. Save National NOW the
additional expense of mailing out bills, which they plan
to do February 1. Send your renewal payments to NOW,
