Soroptimist International of Davis members will gather at the final Picnic in the Park event of the season from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 30, in Central Park. They invite prospective members to join them and get a glimpse of what they do.

The club sells beer and wine at the market each Wednesday, staffing the booth with member volunteers, raising money for grants to local charities. To celebrate the end of its most successful season ever, they will host an informal gathering on the grass behind the booth.

Soroptimist International is the largest classified business and professional women’s service organization in the world, with more than 100,000 members in 115 countries. Its mission is to improve the lives of women and girls, in local communities and throughout the world.

The Davis club was formed in 1954. Today, it has about 50 members, who meet for lunch on most Wednesdays at noon at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St. Members donate their time and resources to improve the community, through service to others.

There are lots of opportunities for hands-on projects. For example, members host birthday parties for youths at the Progress Ranch boys home, and provide a free pumpkin patch at the Davis Farmers Market, coming up Saturday, Oct. 26. The club is a big supporter of youths who “age out” of the foster care system. Its annual Texas hold ’em poker tournament helps that and other programs. The next event is March 8 at the Odd Fellows Hall.

Longtime member and past president Lea Rosenberg says it’s a great way to network, and support women and girls.

“Come by the park, or one of our Wednesday noon meetings, and see what we’re all about,” she says.

First-time guests may attend a luncheon for free, but must RSVP. There is no need to RSVP for the Oct. 30 picnic.

For more information or to register for a luncheon, visit www.sidavis.org. Community members are invited to “like: the Soroptimist International of Davis Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Soroptimists.Davis, to see the Davis Farmers Market beer and wine menu each week, and other club news.
