Many club members have enjoyed stays with their friendship link in Amsterdam. There have been a number of friendship weekends which provide wonderful opportunities to visit various sites around Amsterdam with some of the ‘locals’. More recently members have held joint meetings using Zoom.
Club members have met up with members of the Georgetown at the SI International Conference over the years and one or two members have also visited each other’s clubs. One of our founder members, Margaret Weller, travelled extensively with her work as an Aero Ambulance Nurse and was able to meet up with the Georgetown Soroptimists. Recently the two clubs met up via Zoom and hope to repeat this at the end of November.
Katmandu is our newest Friendship Link club. Through this connection, the club has undertaken to fund a Nepalese student through her law studies at the university of Katmandu. Club members Penny and Dee (back row left) have visited the club.
