Description
The Soroptimist International of Carmichael-Fair Oaks, originally known as the Sacramento-San Juan Soroptimist Club, was chartered in 1969. Part of the larger Soroptimist International of the Americas, Soroptimist clubs cater to professional women interested in community service. The records of the club include five subseries: meeting records, ledgers, club records, club events, and scrapbooks. The files date from 1969 to 2001 when the club disbanded. The bulk of the material dates from 1990-2001. The collection includes scrapbooks, correspondence, ledgers, financial documents, meeting records, photographs, event fliers, programs, tickets, and brochures.
Background
The Soroptimist International of Carmichael-Fair Oaks, originally the Sacramento-San Juan Soroptimist Club, was chartered on March 30, 1969. The club was chartered with twenty-two members, and officers included President Kathlynn Knudsen, Vice President Julia Reese, Corresponding Secretary Sue Hart, Recording Secretary Mary Seasmonds, and Treasurer Ruth Laws. Originally the Sacramento-San Juan club extended over a wide area, including Roseville, Citrus Heights, Folsom and Rancho Cordova. Eventually, however, these areas formed their own club, and in 1990 the Sacramento-San Juan club was renamed Carmichael-Fair Oaks.
