    President Sandy's theme for the 2015-2016 club year is Teamwork!

    In additional to working on our own community service projects, our club helps sponsor requests from other non-profit organizations whose goals match our own - "To improve the lives of women and children locally and around the world." As shown above, we sponsored tickets for some of our members to attend the Living Room's July 27th fundraiser "An Afternoon Affair" on the beautiful enchanting grounds of PYTHIAN HOUSE to help them provide "day services" for women and children who are homeless, or at-risk of homelessness.

    We previously celebrated our club's 70th Anniversary, where we combined three activities into one big event at Charlies Restaurant in Windsor on Saturday May 30th.

    (1) We learned much that Saturday about our club history, the history of our Founder Region (which includes Hawaii, Guam and the Mariana Islands), as well as the history of our America's Federation and our worldwide International Soroptimist organization. Our history speakers were: club member and past Federation Treasurer, Marj Conley; our current Founder Region Governor Bobbi Enderlin; and club member Patsy Daniels shown above at the podium. Patsy has been our Region Governor, America's Federation President and the worldwide Soroptimist International President where she had the opportunity to lead the NGO delegation into the Women's Conference in Bejing.

    (2) Next we presented our club's "Women of Distinction Award" to the Active 2030 club #1029 as well as to "The Living Room" for their "Outstanding Service to our Community." The awards were received by the 2030 club's President Brittanie Haberthur, and Cheryl Parkinson, the Executive Director of the Living Room. They  shared their successes and future plans with the audience.

    (3) We finished this celebration with the installation of our new 2015-2016 club officers and board members, which was performed by Maddy leader, our District 4 Director in Founder Region. She gave every officer/board member a different "team" ball (from football to volleyball), and then cautioned incoming President Sandy Frazer that her job was to be sure that all "Players" were playing the same game with the same goal - to work together with all club members to provide the best service to our community.

    We 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 own club.

    We hope you will join us at one of our meetings or attend one of our upcoming fundraiser events.
