Region President Pam’s Report


Region President Pam’s Report to September Meeting 2019

Another three months of my term of office and much has been achieved throughout our Region. I have been to celebratory lunches, serenaded by Elvis, and enjoyed meeting many Members.

SI Nantwich 70thbirthday celebration One Day Conference was very interesting and enjoyable.

Our Region Meeting on 8thJune ’Come fly with me’ was well attended and well received. Claire Hatton from BWPA certainly put us through our paces showing us just what a trainee pilot must do before they transport us to destinations far flung!

 

Zoë Bowers adeptly illustrated the difference between STEM and STEAM enabling us to see that the STEAM curricula are becoming more favoured as it appears to give a more rounded education and therefore a wholesome mindset.

Our two major Region events the Royal Cheshire Show and the Llangollen International Music Eisteddfod brought good publicity, interest in our projects and possible new members to this Region and beyond. It was interesting to meet folk while at the Royal Cheshire Show and to network with like minded organisations; we were fortunate that the event was dry if somewhat muddy!

Meanwhile we baked during The Llangollen International  Music Eisteddfod; a wonderful experience, great to spend time with sister Soroptimists, meet with many people from all over the world and to spend time with our sponsored choir Alla Polacca Children and Youth Choir who were full of energy and delightful.

I’m looking forward to the next few months as Pres Elect Louise and I put together a programme for next year.
