Soroptimist

Outgoing president, Jenny Murphy, passed on the chain of office to Ruth Dodd at the recent AGM of Amber Valley Soroptimist International, and in turn, Ruth gave the president elect’s insignia to Sue Jelf.

An interesting programme of speakers and activities is planned for the coming year, starting with a visit from the SI Midland East Region oresident at the May meeting.

Ruth reported that her coffee morning for Water Aid had raised £200, despite unseasonably deep snow blighting the attendance of all but the most intrepid.

The Amber Valley SI Club meet monthly, usually at Firs House, Alfreton. Enquiries from prospective members interested in joining the world’s largest international service organisation for women are invited to phone 01773 745 082 or 01773 832 349 for more information.
