The Oakland Club installs and thanks our elected 2021-22 year officers for their upcoming service: President Carolyn Bolton, Vice President Karen Levin, Treasurer Sheila Wang, Secretary Kay Taylor, and Delegates Joyce Hooks and Jacqueline Cisneros.
"Yes We Can" is President Carolyn Bolton's theme for the club's new year July 2021-June 2022. Our annual officer installation event last Saturday was especially joyful as it was our first in-person gathering since the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis. Past President Portia Stewart (left) and re-installed President Carolyn Bolton, hosted the event.
SI Oakland is proud to participate in Alliance for Girls, a coalition of Bay Area organizations that focus on helping women and girls. Members Portia Stewart and Jan Medina participated in their last conference.
Our annual "Steps to Success" Shoe Project event was cancelled due to coronavirus, but the Soroptimist Oakland Club members found a way to make a difference in the lives of East Oakland elementary school students. Many of the students at the two schools where we provide the mentoring project can't participate in online learning opportunities because their families don't have computers. Soroptimist of Oakland-The Founder Club is proud to have donated 60 Kindle Fire tablets to help fill that gap. Please consider making a donation to the Shoe Project.
We're excited to announce our new member Jacqueline Cisneros (center)! Here's Carolyn Bolton (left) installing her at our 1/23/20 meeting with her sponsor and sister Khadija Fredericks. Welcome, Jacqueline!
