Recruitment Social – Response needed!

This Thursday, November 19th, our Recruitment & Retention Committee is hosting a fun evening virtual social event through Zoom!

We need your help recruiting women in our community to help us serve our mission in aiding women & girls by “investing in dreams.”

Each member is being asked to think of at least one person to invite so we can share what Soroptimists are all about!  Please send contact info for potential members to join us in our fun social event!  Send the info (asap!) to Patty at

There will be lots of fun conversation, discussion about our programs and the structure of Soroptimist International, information regarding our club fundraisers and awards, and even some entertainment!

November Business Meeting Today!

Please join us via Zoom for today’s monthly business meeting at 12:00 pm.

President Andrea will review club business, and we will hear updates on the Festival of Trees auction progress and learn more about our upcoming recruitment & retention function.

We would love to see your smiling faces!

Save The Date – Festival of Trees Event

It is that time of year already and we need help from our membership!

We have ordered, and will be delivering to each of you, business cards with our Festival of Trees Online auction information.  We need you to share these with your friends and family, encourage everyone to get online and sign up for our event.  There is no cost for them to “look” — the hope is they will bid and buy too!  It’s super simple to register.  If you have not done so already, please do this before you hand out the cards so you can better explain.  If you would please write your name and number on the back of the cards so they can call you with any questions, then hopefully Shayla and Di are not overrun with calls.

The auction will run from Sunday December 6th at 1pm – Saturday December 12th at 5pm.  All bidders will receive notifications if they are out-bid on an item, via email or text, however they setup their account.  There are also sponsorship options and donation buttons for those that want to contribute without purchasing an item. The website is not yet complete and items are being added daily.  We welcome any feedback as well.  Lets make this as successful as we can, given the state of the world.

If you have any donation items, please get them to Shayla Rollins at OTEC by November 15th so the information can be added to the website and the item can be stored with the other donations.
