“Trust the Magic of New Beginnings”

“I am so excited” to be your 2022-2023 President.  I will strive to be the President you need and deserve.  This club means a great deal to me.  It has been a privilege to be a member of this club for over 20 years.  As your President, I will give it my all to make you proud and to give back to this club some of what it has given me.  But, I cannot do that without all of you. I know, as we know that.  Let’s work together to –  Make that Magic Happen!  So…on with the show! 

I speak of “COHESIVENESS” – Simply put – The “quality” of forming a united whole.

I also speak of “CONTINUITY” – Perhaps – The achievement of a level of performance that does not vary greatly in “quality” over time.

And, I then speak of  “COMMITMENT” – The biggie – The state of “quality” of being dedicated to a cause. 

I believe if we take our magic and concentrate on these three qualities, quality being “the degree of excellence”, our club will reach new levels of success and accomplishment.  In doing so, we will continue to better serve our community of women and girls through financial and educational support and empowerment.  

Please help in making Soroptimist International of Central Solano County the most “quality” club in our Region! President Dorothy

Some of the areas upon which we focus are domestic violence awareness; literacy and education; skills training and employment; women’s health; scholarship grants and awards; and contributions of food, clothing and back-to-school supplies.
