Soroptimist International of Tahoe Sierra was founded on March 4, 1977, over 40 years ago. Our club’s vision has always been to help women and children have the resources and opportunities to reach their full potential and live their dreams. The most rewarding part of being in this wonderful club of diverse women is seeing that vision fulfilled, by the money we spend in the community and throughout the world on worthwhile endeavors, like literacy and education. Education is the most effective path to self-determination, and we support that by providing scholarships and other support to those women and youth who may not always be considered for such assistance.
I have lived in Lake Tahoe since 1990, and have always been very involved in our community. My husband, Joe, was born and raised here in South Lake Tahoe, and we intend to never leave… except maybe to travel more after we both retire.
I have held numerous committee positions in our club, and board positions including Vice President, President Elect, President and Past President. And most recently, as the Service Treasurer for our SITS club. So yes, this will be a second term as President, and I enthusiastically look forward to the coming year. I know I have the full support of our entire club, which makes any leadership job easier and a pleasure to serve.
I hope if you are not yet a member, that you will join us on a Thursday morning at 7:30 at the SLT Senior Center, and see what a warm and inviting group of women we are. Although it is early for some, you will be happy you stopped by.
