Long Service Awards for Soroptimists

Three long serving members of Soroptimist international Barry and District were presented with awards this month. Jackie Memory, a member for 30 years and Dr. Val Williams, a member for 35 years, were presented with their awards by the Club President at the January supper meeting. Anne James, who was unable to attend the meeting, was presented with her award for 45 year’s service at her home.

All of these members are past Presidents who have given outstanding service to the club, to the Soroptimist organisation and to the local community. Members give up their time, skills and experience to help the local community wherever and whenever they can. They also hold fundraising events and donate all of the proceeds to charities both local and international.
