“Working As One…Investing in Dreams” was the theme
of the Soroptimist International of the Americas, Desert Coast
Region District III Fall Meeting that was held on November 4th, 2017
that was hosted by SI El Centro.

I always love the workshops at the DCR III meetings. This year the
workshops gave us some insight into Diversity and Fellowship and
Investing in Dreams through leadership development. SILM had an
outstanding year and was recognized for supporting SIA’s Culture of
Philanthropy (by donating Founders Pennies) and for how we
focused on recruiting new members and creating a happy and
healthy club experience. We received certificates for participating in
the Live Your Dream Awards, for club giving at the Dream Believers
level for our contribution to the 2016-17 clubs giving and a certificate
of appreciation from SIA in honor of our efforts to increase SIA’s
collective impact.

Our annual Pre-Thanksgiving Community breakfast held on
Thanksgiving eve, November 22 was a huge success. Our theme
this year was ….Saluting Soroptimists International’s “Live Your
Dream Catchers, Dream Builders and Dream Believers”,. This year
SILM honored previous Live Your Dream awardees from our club
and other clubs. The keynote speaker was LaDreda P. Lewis, the Executive Director
of Sylvan Learning of La Mesa and CEO of 40 Acres and A Mind
Inc.

I wish everyone a very Happy Holiday Season!

President Marlene
