I held my first business meeting as President on August 3rd and we
certainly have hit the ground running for the new club year
2017-2018. We already have had a few successful committee
meetings: Laws and Resolutions, Fundraising, and our 60th Annual
Pre Thanksgiving Community Breakfast event. Please Save the
Date for the breakfast signature event that will be held on
Wednesday November 22nd. There is a SAVE THE DATE in this
newsletter and watch for flyers, etc that will be available soon.
On August 16th I attended a meeting to discuss how District III clubs
might be able to work collaboratively across our District to increase
the number of Live Your Dream awards applications and how we
could increase our overall collective impact.
The following Announcement was sent from SIA: “Soroptimist
International of the Americas has been selected as the first charity
to launch with the new Torrid Foundation. Through this relationship
Torrid will feature SIA LiveYourDream.org brands online and in
stores to raise awareness about SIA programs and generate much
needed funding for the Live Your Dream Awards.” The full
announcement is in this newsletter. In addition, view the Torrid
Foundation page for more details.
So, it looks like we will have a very busy and productive year to look
forward to …… Improving the Lives of Women and Girls through
programs leading to social and economic empowerment!
President Marlene
