SEASON’S GREETINGS FROM SI THAMES VALLEY Wishing all our friends and sister Soroptimists a peaceful Christmas and a healthy and successful 2022. Our sincere thanks for your continued interest and support for the Kori project in Sierra Leone, and especially the Memorial Orchard in remembrance of Johanna Raffan.
SI Thames Valley are delighted that our member Johanna Raffan has taken office as SIGBI Federation President 2020/2021. In these peculiar times she was not at the planned conference in Belfast, but in her own at home, as all the presenta tions were broadcast via virtual conferencing. So the members of SITV sent her two beautiful table arrangements of flowers and a large bouquet, in subtle colours. These were delivered in the morning of the first day of conference. Congratulations Johanna and enjoy your year, even though you will not be travelling the world as much as you thought you would. ‘A force to be reckoned with’ Just prior to conference, Johanna was interviewed by Adrian Williams of the Maidenhead Advertiser.
