Club President's Message

A monthly message from the current club president:

July  2017                                 

 A Note from Fiona:

Hi Ladies,

Our 2016/2017 Soroptimist year is almost at an end but we are going out with quite a "Bang". Our "Sip and Paint" fundraiser last Thursday was a great success. It met several goals, a fundraiser, a fun social event and it gave us the opportunity to share our organization with the public. Thirteen of us were in attendance so there are that number of masterpieces out there!!! We had a wonderful time and raised over 600$ so all in all it was a super event. Hopefully we will try to do it again sometime so that those who missed out can get in on the fun in the future.

I think you can agree that we have had a great year!!! New members, more fun and more money to distribute.

All of this takes work and I want to thank Donna with her committee of Mary V. and Ann L. for the work that they did on this most recent fundraiser. Now is the time to be thinking of new committee assignments for the upcoming year. I have worked on several  committees in my time as a Soroptimist and some are a little more time consuming than others but all are rewarding in their own way. If you have been on a committee for several years think of switching to another or chairing the ones you are on. I will have a sign up sheet at the picnic on July 17th at Dee's home.

We survived last summer without a Newsletter in August so I thought Linda should take a month off and enjoy her planned travels. We can communicate by email in the meantime then really look forward to our September edition. Thanks to her too for doing this throughout the year.

For everyone pat yourselves on the back for a great year and enjoy a wonderful summer.
Together we can do great things.
Fondly Fiona
