Soroptimist International of Huntington Beach Kicks Off Its 2018-19 Year!

Facebooktwitterreddit

55 years ago, Soroptimist International of Huntington Beach began its mission to improve the lives of disadvantaged women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment.

Since that year, the women we serve and the scope of our Soroptimist community has grown exponentially.  The women we serve stretch all the way to Haiti where we sponsor  a young girl, Stephane, to go to school so hopefully she can live her dream of being a teacher one day.  Our members live all over southern California…from Whittier to Orange…from Cypress to Fountain Valley…and of course, Huntington Beach!

And speaking of members, at our first business meeting of our 2018-19 year, we celebrated Georgette’s 5th anniversary!  Georgette jumped in from the “get-go”.  She has been our recording secretary and our club president…the latter 3 times…since she joined.  We love you, Georgette and The Girl Cave, too!

And that’s not all!  Our 2018-19 VP of Membership, Carrie, installed not one but two new members, Anji and Mary!

And so, as we begin a new chapter in our book of helping women and girls to live their dreams; we once again, want to say thank you to our many members and supporters. We couldn’t do it without you.

And…last but certainly not least…we invite you to join us at our first program meeting of the year on September 27th at the Claim Jumper Restaurant in Fountain Valley.  For more information, please visit our Meetings & Events page or contact us at info@soroptimisthuntingtonbeach.org.  We hope to see you there!
