This last year, my first as President of Soroptimist International Amber Valley went so quickly and comparatively smoothly I found myself agreeing to a second year of office. What an absolute pleasure and joy it has been to be the club president for the last year.
My theme for the coming year is Widening Our Horizons and once again the programme of speakers that we have arranged in the year to come hope looks like it will be interesting and provide thought provoking discussion, making us aware of both local, national and international issues.
My chosen charity for the coming year is the Children’s Air Ambulance.
We will also continue to support Mary’s Meals and Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline. We have been fortunate to attract a steady stream of new members and visitors who come to see what we are all about and then make a decision as to whether they would like to be a more permanent part of our club.
Growing our club by encouraging friends, acquaintances and family to give us a try is as important as the work we do, to keep the club vibrant and fresh and promote the ethos of Soroptimists worldwide.
