Induction of New Members
At the October 2017 Business meeting President Ann inducted Julie into the worldwide Soroptimist organisation and warmly welcomed her as a member of SI Bilston & District. Julie has been to a number of Bilston club meetings, the Annual Charter celebration and a Friendship visit to Somerset. She is already firmly established with us and we look forward to working with her. Julie has shown her creative skills already by making dresses for Mary Meals Backpacks. We know Julie will be an excellent Soroptimist.
Prior to the April 2017 AGM we celebrated good news- three new members joined the club- two who had transferred from SI Smethwick, which sadly has closed and Hilary Smith who was inducted. President Jan formally welcomed Hilary who has attended several club meetings. Cherril and Lesley were warmly welcomed to Bilston.
After receiving new members the AGM followed.

Bilston club members were delighted to welcome new member Karen Webber at their October 2016 Business meeting. Karen has attended several meetings and social events proving her strong interest in Soroptimist values. We look forward to working with Karen and hope she enjoys being a member of our friendly club.
At the 7th July 2016 business meeting members were delighted to welcome Jane Keith as a member of SI Bilston Club. Jane has been to several meetings and has already shown her real Soroptimist ‘Colours’ by working very hard whilst the UN/ Stop the Traffik Gift Box was in Queens Square Wolverhampton. She ensured that many members of the public were given promotional leaflets on Child Sexual Exploitation. Well done Jane. Here’s to a long and happy membership!
