A Message From our President
Hello fellow Soroptimist!
Here in Chico we have enjoyed several wonderful spring days. We are certainly still hoping for some rain in March.
We had to change our meeting venue and had a great speaker meeting at the Pour House, our new "home", in February. We got to hear all about "Bridging the Gap"
, a nonprofit organization that raises money and awareness for clean water in developing countries.
In March I am looking forward to our Awards Banquet! We are celebrating our "Live your Dream" winners and several other great organizations.
Everyone is working hard on selling tickets for our upcoming 25th Anniversary Microbrew Fest in June. We are making some changes and have a few new additions.
In April the Sierra Nevada Region's annual Conference is coming up! I want to specially encourage new Members to consider going. It is always a lot of fun. We carpool and share rooms. This is a great opportunity to meet members from other clubs and see the larger picture of the Soroptimist organization. The club will pay the registration/meal fee for all first time attendees. Let me know if you are interested and I will help getting you set up. Look out for the "Call" to register.
We are ready to get the "Dream it, Be it project started. March 11th will kick off the 7 week project. SI Bidwell Rancho and SI Chico has invited some great speakers and I always look forward meeting the girls and making a difference in their life.
Lastly I want to take the opportunity and thank all of my fellow club members for their flexibility and patience while we were finding a new venue! I couldn't do any of this without your support!
Wishing everyone a Happy Spring!
