We’re holding a small Getting To Know Us gathering on Tuesday, October 18th and we would like to invite you to come! There will be light refreshments, information and camaraderie, and we’ll be asking everyone to lend a hand with us for about a half hour to stuff the goodie bags we’ll be handing out to our 150 girls at the upcoming and free Imagining Possibilities Conference.
The word Soroptimist means ‘best for women’ and our 95 year old organization has improved the lives of countless women and girls over that time span. Our club is almost 7 years old, and in that time we have created Anney’s Closet, a free store for girls aging out of foster care and women leaving transition homes, among others referred to us; the Imagining Possibilities Conference, a free day long conference for young women ages 15 to 24 to fire up their potential; and we’ve awarded thousands of dollars to single women with children for educational costs through our Live Your Dream Awards. These are just a few of the terrific programs through SI Victoria Westshore ~ and we have so much fun working together!
We would like you to come for a short gathering beginning at 6:15 at our meeting place in the family room at Sands Funeral Chapel, 317 Goldstream Avenue in Colwood. We’ll feed you some light refreshments, inspire you with our fun and our work, and we hope you will think about becoming a member of our club!
Please let us know if you are able to come.
