Soroptimist El Dorado – “Investing in Dreams”

Soroptimist El Dorado met January 6, 2020. President Janett Doile called the meeting to order after a light supper during our social time. We welcomed guest Jan Zuk.

Brenda Burk introduced guest Briana Salinas and her daughter Gabby. Briana is our 2019 Live Your Dream Award winner; she is pursuing her education at BCC. President Janett Doile and Brenda Burk congratulated Briana and presented her award.

Bernie Spradling provided a report of December’s Salvation Army activities. Seven club members rang bells at Dillons; gift bags were delivered to six nursing homes in Butler County and we adopted three single mother households from the Angel Tree.

Janett announced we will celebrate spring with a salad supper and member recruitment event on March 16. Each club member is encouraged to bring a guest.

January donations collected were school supplies which will be given to local schools.

Hostesses were Janett Doile and Sharon Mangels. Members attending not already mentioned were Julia Davis, Debi LaForge, Dee Marshall, Joni Sanders, Judie Storandt and Loretta Whitney. We adjourned with the Soroptimist Pledge.

Congratulations to Briana Salinas – our 2019 Live Your Dream Award winner.
