The American Association of University Women is sad to see retiring lawmakers Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa and Rep. George Miller of California go, but wants to watch them have a blast doing so at a reception featuring bubbly and gourmet baked goods.
The retiring Democrats will be feted on Tuesday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Kennedy Caucus Room (Russell 325) as part of the 42nd anniversary of Title IX. Harkin, the chairman of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee and the Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies Subcommittee, and Miller, the ranking member and former chairman of the Education and the Workforce Committee, are longtime advocates of the university community.
“Cupcakes and champagne will be served,” the open invitation reads. Well-wishers should sign their commitment to their team — Teams Free Booze and/or Sugar Rush — via the online registration site.
