At their annual Christmas party held this year at Bridgewater Del Webb’s Landmark Lodge, Soroptimist International of the Flat Rock Area (SIFRA) enjoyed a catered dinner. Members contributed gifts, which were raffled off, donating more than $600 to a local charity.
The club welcomed and inducted three new members to their fold: Sandy Kozma of Trenton, Tangie Meyers of Brownstown and Cynthia Wylonis of Dearborn Heights.
Earlier this month, SIFRA partnered with Flat Rock Rotary in the Adopt-A-Child program through Head Start, in purchasing basic clothing, especially winter coats, for four kids in the downriver area. Seven individual Soroptomists also “adopted” children through this program.
The next meeting of SIFRA will be Tuesday, Jan. 9 at Big Bear Lodge in Brownstown at 6 p.m. with a meeting at 7 p.m. Our guest speaker will be Lt. Tressa Duffin, an 18-year veteran of the Monroe State Police. She is the chair of the Monroe County Anti- Human Trafficking Coalition and will examine the issue of human trafficking.
