“We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.”
Where to begin….My cup is more than half full…and I am so proud to be a member of Soroptimist International of Huntington Beach.
This past week has brought so many joys…
We celebrated our “Dolly Wakeham” mom, Jessica Fey, with a graduation party on Friday night. She graduated with a 4.0 from Orange Coast College and will be entering Cal State Long Beach in the fall to completed her Bachelor of Science degree in dietetics/nutrition. But, Jessica, being the sharing person she is, did not mind that we also celebrated our 2014-2015 Live Your Dream Honoree, Ida Zamaniego’s graduation from Golden West College with honors and 2013-2014 Dolly Wakeham mom and Live Your Dream Honoree, Sally Lyons, admission to the Mortuary Science Program at Cypress College. We are so proud to be a part of these amazing women’s lives.
Five of us attended the Leadership Academy on Saturday in Oceanside: Georgette Sleeth, Brenda Walters, Marcelle Capps, Rachel Alm & me…and we all learned something new! Personally speaking, I always find Soroptimist events energizing.
And last but certainly not least, River’s goal of reaching $5,000 for the walk is getting closer and closer but, he told me, over the weekend, that I forgot to tell our sponsors that we will be highlighting them in a blog and on our front page of the website plus, if they have a website, we will include a link to their website. We will also be thanking them on our Facebook and Twitter pages….and we will be publicly thanking our donors, too!
Speaking of our Walk To Make A Difference, have I mentioned our Sponsor levels? In case you missed them, here they are:
Tail Wagger $2,500
Face Licker $1,000
Cookie Lover $ 500
Barker $ 250
Couch Potato $ 100
Thank you for caring & sharing! Have a wonderful week!
