18 ladies accepted personal invitations from the members of SI Selby to join them for a special Membership Evening on Wednesday 18th May. Our guest speaker was the effervescent Sue Biggs, Federation Vice President and former Chair of UKPAC, who shared her experiences of Soroptimism with an audience of nearly 40. Also attending was the Yorkshire President, Liz Lyle, and Regional Membership Officer, Pat Kilbane, who later wrote to thanks us for organising such a successful evening.
As the wine and nibbles flowed, not to mention the cakes, 14 of the 18 guests present expressed interest in finding out more about Soroptimism. Organised by Judith Cooke and the Membership, Care and Concern Committee, the evening was great fun as these photographs show. President Hilary thanked the organisers and praised the Social and Events Committee for their outstanding catering.
