The mission of the Soroptimist is to better the lives of women and girls through our community and throughout the world,” said Soroptimist member, Terry Willis. “This service organization has been going on – like I said for 62 years, which is amazing in today’s world, where most service organizations are dying out, our club is going strong, we have about 25 members right now.” Interested in being a part of the Soroptimist International they hold their monthly meetings on the third Wednesday of each month at 6:30 pm at the Carbon Country Club.
