Soroptimist International of Honolulu

PRESIDENTS MESSAGE: Aloha SIH members! I am very happy to be sharing my first Presidents message with you all. Weve transitioned nicely to the new Board of Directors and Leadership Team and we are off to an excellent start. We have a very busy and exciting year ahead of us! Right out of the gate there was the Soroptimist International of the Americas convention at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. We met Soroptimists from such places as Japan, Taiwan, Brazil, Canada and Mexico just to name a few. Look out for our Annual Calendar of Events coming soon. This will allow you to Save-the-Date for several upcoming events and see the plan for this year. The theme I have chosen for this year is


OFFICERS: President Shawnee Hammer Immediate Past President Julie Arigo Vice President Mollye Lewis Secretary Holly Duarte Treasurer Kim Jones DIRECTORS: 2011-2013 Katie Yoshioka Paulette Suzuki 2012-2014 Corazon Dumlau Thuy Nguyen-Martines Always striving to improve the lives of women and girls, in local communities and throughout the world.

Individually we can make a difference, together we can make an impact

Individually we can make a difference, together we can make an impact.

I chose this theme because Ive seen us come together in the last few years and really start to make an impact in our community. No matter how big or small we are headed in the right direction and I know the impact we make will increase. Weve had much success working together with the other Oahu Clubs on Taste of the Arts and now with a projected 3 Oahu Club service project in the works well create an even larger impact thru working together. Not to mention how we work together within our own club. Its an exciting time to be a member of Soroptimist International of Honolulu! Lastly, I would like to sincerely thank our Immediate Past President, Julie Arigo. Julie was an incredible President and as I shadowed her throughout her term I learned so much. She is not only an awesome leader but also a beautiful person inside and out. Thank you Julie! I am looking forward to getting to know you all a little better this year. And I thank you very much for this opportunity. Sincerely, Shawnee Hammer SI Honolulu President
