SOROPTIMIST INTERNATIONAL HERTFORD AND DISTRICT – CLUB MESSAGE 2016-2017


Welcome to Soroptimist International Hertford and District

2016 is a special year for us as we celebrate our 60th anniversary of service to the community. We were delighted that friends from SI Hamar, Norway and SI Gaziosmanpasa, Ankara, together with members from across our region, were able to join us for our celebratory lunch on April 30th. We were proud to be able to present a cheque for £2000 to Carers in Hertfordshire (outgoing President Sarah’s chosen charity) and a cheque for £1000 to Water Aid. We also announced the inauguration of our Diamond Engineering Award which we plan to present annually to a local girl studying Engineering.

Another cause for celebration is that the Regional President for the period November 2015 – November 2016 is a member of our club. We are proud to support President Pam in this role.

Our programme for this year has been compiled by a trio of members and promises to be both informative and stimulating. If, like us, you are passionate about improving the lives of women and girls both here at home and in some of the poorest and most disadvantaged areas of the world, why not come along to one of our events or speaker meetings? (You will find details in the programme). You can be assured of a warm welcome and we look forward to meeting you.
