Soroptimist International of Placerville is thrilled to announce that we have awarded our annual Live Your Dream grant, a unique education award for women who provide the primary financial support for their families. Typically, one recipient is selected for the $2,500 award per year. This year, the Club decided to utilize a grant from the Lyons Foundation and increase the total awards to six, including five $1,000 grantees. We were overwhelmed by the response and wish we could have helped everyone but we are proud to showcase the six awardees:
Soroptimist Members donated $250 worth of personal & feminine hygeine products for a local organization-MJ's Project.  Thanks MJ & Nikki for all they do to support local students.
March 2019 Update:  Soroptimist International of Placerville, in collaboration with PreventionWorks, will start educating 7th graders at a local Placerville Middle School in warning signs of human trafficking (HT), improving self-esteem and anti-bullying techniques.  Already in progress is Ht Awareness training of staff & teachers.  Check back later for more updates on this inspirational program.
It’s hard to remember exactly how things were in the world 80 years ago—so much has changed!  One thing hasn’t changed, however, and that is the devotion of the members of Soroptimist International of Placerville to improving the lives of women and girls and empowering them through education in both Placerville and El Dorado County. The Placerville Soroptimist Club is celebrating its 80th Anniversary on January 7th, at the Cary House Hotel, where the Club was chartered and held its first meeting in 1939.
SIP Members and hubby's had FUN decorating our club tree along Highway 50.   Be on the lookout for our festive tree swathed in blue lights and a brand-new start tree topper.
Be on the look-out for our Club's beautiful tree along Highway 50.  It should be easy to spot with all it's blue lights and silver ornaments.
