soroptimist


(Note from President Betsi -
Thursday, February 2nd Bev, Terry Sue, Marsha and I attended an ESOL (English as a second language) Family Fair in Highpoint. It was an amazing event. There were boxes of fresh vegetables for attendees to take home (including us!), free hot dogs, pastries donated by Publix, and water. Inside the meeting room were displays from Clearwater, Largo and Safety Harbor Libraries who gave away books to the children. There were tables from St Pete College, PTEC, and other non-profits with programs to help the attendees further their goals. Our bookmarks were well-received, even if many of the children had to translate for their parents. )
