Rec. Sec. Kellie Barton

I have been a Soroptimist member for 13 years.  I joined originally to be a good role model for my girls. As a member I have gained leadership skills while learning about the needs within our community. I value the ability to make a direct impact and support my personal commitment to the community. I work full time, am mother to two amazing daughters and a grandma.

V. P. Gwen Luring

I joined Soroptimist River Valley in March 2000 as a Charter member. My previous work history as a Finance Manager for a major telecommunications company didn’t leave much time for community involvement. I moved to Grants Pass in 1998 and immediately started looking for opportunities to serve.  Helping women and girls live their best lives is a passion of mine.

Corr. Sec. Denise Michele

Retired Chiropractor

I became a Soroptimist member in 1995 in Gendale, CA.  I have contributed to the clubs operations by being Corr. Secretary, Treasurer, Director, Website manager.  The best aspect has been being involved with fund-raising projects over the years and working with outstanding women.
