Several important things are happening this month. First, on June 12, Immediate Past Federation President Dawn Marie Lemonds will be speaking at our meeting about all things Soroptimist. I hope you will all make a special effort to attend the meeting. Second, Finance Committee Chair Lee Moisio presented the proposed 2019-2020 budget in May. The Board will vote to approve the budget at its meeting on July 8 and the Foundation membership will ratify the budget at the Business meeting on July 10. And finally, at our meeting on June 26, we will hold the installation ceremony for the new Board of Directors. I hope you will plan to attend all these important meetings.
A BIG thank you to Education & Youth Committee chair Janey Roeser and all her committee members on a wonderful scholarship presentation program. I think we were all impressed by the scholarship winners this year.
Our Soroptimist year is coming to an end and I want to thank everyone for their support over the last two years—especially Board members and committee chairs. Without members who are willing to give of their time and expertise, we would not be able to contribute to our community to the level we do. During the past two years, I believe we have worked hard to overcome change that was thrust upon us, but we have weathered the storm and have a bright future ahead. President-elect Jenn is hard at work getting her year as president organized. She has some wonderful ideas for our club and I hope all of you will support her during her presidency.
I will be on vacation for the next couple weeks; President-elect Jenn and Vice-president Annie will be conducting the meetings.
