Centenary Celebrations 1921- 2021

A Message from Sue Clark, Centenary Celebration Co-ordinator SI Kidderminster & District

I hope you are all keeping safe and well.  Due to the uncertainty caused by the pandemic, SI Kidderminster feels that it will no longer be possible to stage our July 4th celebration at the Rose Theatre in Kidderminster.

Therefore we propose that a virtual concert take place online on Sunday, June 27th at 2 pm.

Several clubs in the region had already agreed to participate with us and we hope that they will join us virtually too.

They are S I Stourbridge- S I Coventry- S I Kenilworth- and S I Bromsgrove & Redditch.

We would welcome any other clubs to join us in this virtual venture.

We estimate a contribution of 5 – 10 minutes per decade which can be presented in many ways to celebrate 100 years of Soroptimism, following the “Bright Past and Brilliant Future” theme.

Please contact me for more information.  It would be lovely if you could join us in what we hope will be an uplifting and entertaining afternoon.


President Rose Marks the Start of the Centenary Celebrations with a Message to Regional Members

Dear All,
This coming Saturday 3 October, marks the beginning of our Centenary year. It culminates on the 3 October 2021 which marks the day that the first meeting was held in The Hotel Oakland, Almeda County, California.
The launch is at 12noon and we would like as many of you as possible to take a photograph including the time, the date, or something with ‘100’ plus of course a Soroptimist logo of some sort. You might choose to raise a glass or to light a candle. Perhaps wearing our colours of blue and yellow?
These photos will be used on Social Media, your websites and we can send them in for inclusion on the Centenary website.

We may also be able to put them in a montage for future meetings.

Several of us from the Regional Committee will be attending a Three Regions meeting on Zoom and will also be celebrating.

This is my initial attempt at something different.
