    After the meeting, members and guests are encouraged to have lunch at Shelby’s, located at 2 Orinda Theatre Square. Food may also be purchased for lunch, dinner, takeout – or all three! Curbside delivery is available upon request. Shelby’s will donate 10% of their sales on Sept. 20 to the AAUW-OML scholarship fund.
