Members Bid Farewell to Long Standing Soroptimist

Members of SI Canterbury gathered for an afternoon tea party to thank member Maureen Keppler as she returns from SI Canterbury to SI Ashford.

Maureen transferred from Ashford in 1999 to support the survival of Canterbury. She served as President and took on the responsibility of Treasurer for many years. Her sense of what is right, experience as a successful business woman and her energy and good judgement are all qualities that have made Maureen a wonderful Soroptimist and advocate of equal rights for women and girls.

Maureen engaged with many Programme Action projects and she has always championed Soroptimist aims. Most of all, Maureen brought friendship, warmth and generosity to our club. We will miss Maureen very much at Canterbury, but we are sure she will enjoy being back with Ashford and I’m sure our clubs will now share a very special relationship.
