2014-15 President Flo Cal Fire Presentation_1Cal Fire Presentation_2 CMOSC Childrens Exhibit

President - Florence Murray
President Flo's theme this year is Reaching for the Stars!

We are well into our 2014-2015 club year and our new officers and committee chairs are busy planning events and programs including continuing support for projects in our community.

One of those continuing projects sponsored training for members of CAL FIRE who created interactive diaromas which they presented to elementary school children around Sonoma County. This program which started by teaching children Fire Safety around the home has mushroomed to include many other agencies affecting the safety of children in our community - see pictures above.

Also shown above is longtime memer Lola Haran who recently inducted Sabrina Coyle-Johnson as a "new" club member. Sabrina learned first hand about our Santa Rosa Soroptimist club a few years ago when she received our $3,000 Ethel Polhemus Balbi Master's Award. Later she became the Executive Director of R-House, serving foster youth who have faced struggles most of their childhood,

Soroptimist International of Santa Rosa offers many services to the community, including over $15,000 in awards and scholarships for both high school and college students. We provided over 4,000 pairs of socks to SAY (Social Advocates for Youth) for the 1,200+ teens on the streets last winter and participated in various hands-on service projects. We also provide support for our room at the YWCA women' Safe House,and our "Soroptimist" Transition House in cooperation with InterFaither Shelter Network.

We help sponsor other local non-profit organizations which benefit women and children and at the same time join with other Soroptimist clubs to "make a difference for women and girls" here in Sonoma County, in Northern California, and around the world.

Soroptimist International of Santa Rosa hosts several fundraisers during the year to support our various Service Projects and Scholarships and hope you will join us at these fun events.
