SITM recognizes three outstanding members for their contribution to our club.
Ceec Abrahams Award
The Ceec Abrahams Award is given yearly to an outstanding Soroptimist who has gone above and beyond the call of duty in her support of the Club and its activities.
Era of Excellence
This special award was awarded to Jo Ann Roberts and Faye I. Andersen. It recognizes two members who have inspire us, while doing astounding things for our club and the community. A volunteer’s mission is simple: make a positive change in the world. However, the tasks given to a volunteer are not always easy. Not only do they give their time, but they also give an immense amount of effort. They work tirelessly to get the job done, while still keeping their personal and professional lives afloat.
