All Soroptimist Clubs connect through friendship links and SI Liverpool are no exception to this. We have four friendship links within the Soroptimist Federations.
Our links are:
In the past we have enjoyed friendship visits to and from Cologne, Eisenach, Douglas, Oslo and Chalons-Sur-Saone and have made some lasting friendships along the way.
We are looking forward to welcoming four of our Soroptisisters from Cologne to the city of Liverpool for the SIGBI Conference.A warm welcome to Sylvia Achenbach , Nora Feldhausen, Christiane Rieker and Ilse Kiel. Also welcome to Ilsa’s Soroptimister Keith! We are sure you will enjoy not only the conference but also a warm welcome from the club too!
Our sister club, SI Cologne not only celebrated their 60th anniversary but our two clubs also celebrated our 30th anniversary as friendship clubs. Thirteen members of SI Liverpool, with their Soroptimisters, attended a wonderful weekend’s celebration in Cologne. On Friday, we were welcomed to the Town Hall of Cologne with a barbecue and an evening of friendship. On Saturday, at the beautiful Floral Gardens, we enjoyed presentations from the club’s partnerships, and in the evening, we celebrated a gala dinner. On Sunday morning, at the Chocolate Factory, we enjoyed a celebration of of our clubs’s friendship. President Dorothy gave a painting of the Liverpool waterfront, by club member Ann Clayton, to each member of SI Cologne. The morning finished with singing, dancing and a wonderful send-off!
