A Sunshine Welcome

A few of Crosby’s Soroptimists were able to hold a very special ‘in person’ gathering recently.

Firstly, in President Chris Smith’s garden – in the sunshine – there was a simple change of insignia. Chris Chua-Short has been SI Crosby’s ‘Covid President’, holding virtual meetings throughout her year and co-ordinating the Club’s lockdown activity.

She was therefore proud to wear the Club’s historic presidential badge before officially passing it to her successor.

Secondly, the Crosby club welcomed a new Soroptimist – Vesna Levi. For several months Vesna has attended the Zoom meetings: but this was her first opportunity to meet other members – or, at least, a handful of them.

“It was lovely for her finally to get together with a few of us in person, as she has only seen us on-screen. Now she knows that we all actually have legs!” said President Chris.

“My predecessor Chris will be Vesna’s mentor and will help settle her into Club. Vesna will also have an opportunity to introduce herself to our members at our next virtual meeting.

“Let’s hope it’s not too long before we can all meet in person and work together again.”
