President Sandy's theme for the 2015-2016 club year is Teamwork!
Although we are taking a one month breather now with no weekly club meetings in July, there is still so much to do while we prepare for the new 2015-2016 club year. Members will attend Committee meetings, Planning meetings and our officers will attend their 1st Board meeting on July 23rd before the opening August 6th business meeting.
We just finished celebrating our club's 70th Anniversary
and we combined three activities into one big event at Charlies Restaurant in Windsor on Saturday May 30th.
IN PICTURES ABOVE, 2014-2015 President Florence
checked-in the guests as incoming 2015-2016 President Sandy greeted and
directed them to tables with lovely accompaniment by harpist Susan
Weinstein. Past President Flo shown at the podium welcomed members and guests
to our celebration and introduced the head table speakers who then
shared Soroptimist History at the Club, Region,
Federation, and International level.
Each speaker received a gold gift bag holding a clock engraved with their name and date commemorating the event.
We are currently updating some of our scholarship applications which include awards for students at Santa Rosa Junior College, for Sonoma State students who have been accepted into their Masters program, and educational awards for women who are returning to the workforce or changing career paths. Our current awards total almost $15,000 each year and we are already adding scholarships in the near future for students working toward a Certificate at the Santa Rosa Junior College.
We invite our award winners to club meetings to share their experiences and goals as they receive their monitary award.
We help sponsor several local non-profit organizations and invite representatives from various organizations or businesses to speak at our club meetings to learn more about how they benefit the community as we raise Pulic Awareness about our club.
We hope you will join us at one of our meetings or attend one of our upcoming fundraiser events.
