Soroptimist International (SI) is a worldwide organization for women, active or retired from management and other professions, working through service projects to advance human rights and the status of women in 125 countries and territories.  We are a global voice for women and accomplish our goals through awareness, advocacy and action.

Soroptimist International of Rim of the World is part of the Federation known as Soroptimist International of the Americas, in the Golden West Region. Each club in the region decides which local service projects to support.  

I hope you all enjoyed a break over the holidays. Now the year is well under way and February is almost upon us. In February, we think of Valentine’s Day with red rose-colored decorations, cupids shooting arrows, and frilly doily hearts. In February, we should also be thinking of another kind of hearts.

February has been declared Heart Health Month by the National Heart Association. Our newly renamed and revitalized Women’s Health and Mammogram Committee, known as WHAM, is helping us be more heart

health conscience. They have arranged for a speaker from Mountain Community Hospital to talk to us at our monthly breakfast meeting. Thanks to Connie Sweet for getting this fantastic WHAM team into action and to all on the committee for their work and ideas. Wear red to the breakfast meeting to

show your support for healthy hearts!

The million daffodil march continues. SIROW continues to supply bulbs to be planted in our mountain communities. We have donated a case of bulbs to the Rim of the World Historical Society for planting at the Mountain History Museum. A second case has been donated to the Girl Scouts for them to plant on the mountain. Thanks to Susie Stewart for making it happen. Watch for the beautiful blooms in early spring!

You asked for it and several of your fellow Soroptimists have answered the call to “Go Jump in the Lake”. Cathy Kay, Tracey Moore-Matejka, and I will take the plunge on Saturday, February 3 in the PolaRotary Bear Plunge. We will be jumping as the “Marvel Us” women superheroes of the Lake. You can support us by donating to the Lake Arrowhead Rotary Foundation and by coming and cheering us on at the Lake Arrowhead Resort at 10 a.m. that Saturday.

These are just a few of the activities of our dynamic club. Thanks to all of you who make it happen.


Your President, Nancy Buecheler
