Our Special Thanks to our Host Hotel:





Dr. Bernice Szafarek, Past Governor of SIANER, and Joan Merritt, Membership Chair of SIANER, recently sat down and talked with Marilyn Dayton, host of a local community TV program, "From this Corner" about our international organization, SOROPTIMIST. Host Marilyn Dayton says "Towards the end of the show, you will find yourself wondering "what can I do?" This organization provides ways to help improve the lives of women and girls all over the world through programs leading to social and economic empowerment."
