Governor’s Message

Happy “To Be Thankful Month”!

Well I am very happy to report that both FDM’s were very successful.  The board has reviewed all the evaluations and it seems the topics were well received.  Most members were very pleased with the venues, the food, the content, and mostly the friendliness of our members.  Thank you to each member who took the time to attend and  learn more about Soroptimist.  Our Laurel Society membership is still growing which makes all of us truly grateful for the graciousness of our anonymous donor. Photos from both events are on the photo page, but they are also on the NAR Face Book page. Presentations used are on the SIA website.

Please plan ahead!  We hope by giving you these dates early your clubs will consider not planning club events on these dates so members have a chance to attend NAR events.  I hope everyone has already marked their calendars for Spring Conference 2019, May 2-May 5th. Our SOAR Leadership Seminar will be in August, and tentative date is August 17th, 2019.  Please mark your calendars for 2019 FDM’s. Host for Districts 1/2 will be SI Rancocas, October 18/19 and host for  Districts 3/4 will be SI Fayette, November 8/9. Again, tentative dates depending on availability for hotels.

Keep those newsletters coming.  Also, I would like names and addresses of your new members since September.  Keep your Face Book post going, I try to repost on the NAR Face Book page.

It seems unreal that in a week many of us will be traveling for our Thanksgiving weekend or we will be preparing for our tables filled with family and friends.  Let us take time to remember those who are not fortunate to have a place at a table for Thanksgiving dinner.  Perhaps you will donate to a local food bank, a church or community center to help make a Thanksgiving Dinner a reality for someone.

I wish each of you a very Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels.  I am thankful for all you do to support Soroptimist, and mostly I am thankful for our friendships.

Governor Peggy
