Pat has accessed extra (empty) units for the Yard Sale tomorrow, so even if it rains our items & people will stay dry! BTW, Pat is AWESOME! We do need more help (6am set-up, 8-12 sale) and members are NOT expected to stay for 4-6 hours – we’ll take whatever hour/s you can spare! Thank you!
Attention Members – A photographer will be at our monthly Business meeting on May 11th to take a group photo with as many members as possible. This will be displayed at the 75th Annual June Breakfast. Apply some lipstick and rouge (as my Granny would say), and plan to put on your best smile, noon on the 11th. There is also a jam-packed agenda for that meeting, so a good one to make if you possibly can! CHEESE!
The Jean McKenzie award was established in 1993 to honor Jean McKenzie, a Soroptimist Life Member and long-time community leader. Her Soroptimist pin was mounted on a plaque to be given each year to an outstanding Soroptimist. In 2001, Soroptimist of La Grande combined the Jean McKenzie Award with the Soroptimist Woman of the Year Award honoring one Soroptimist with the “Jean McKenzie Woman of the Year” traveling plaque. Please nominate an SILGer who is an outstanding volunteer in Union County, who cares about our area and tries to “Make a Difference” – a member who has demonstrated community involvement and helping others beyond the club requirement for members. The recipient’s name will be submitted for consideration for the Soroptimist International “Women of Distinction” and/or “Women Helping Women” award. Completed nomination forms go to Rebecca, no later than May 12th.
