About Us

The Smith Mountain Branch of AAUW is made up of more than 60 women who enjoy continual learning and service opportunities in our mountain lake community southeast of Roanoke, Virginia and the surrounding area.

Our interest groups include a Classics reading group, and International Study group and a Community Outreach group.

Our luncheon meetings include a local speaker of interest, a business meeting, and lunch. Meetings take place from September through May. Interest groups and projects continue year round.
