BOUNTIFUL — New officers have been installed to carry out the programs of Soroptimists International of Bountiful, and applications are now being accepted for the awards the organization presents.
The international women’s service organization is dedicated to helping women and girls throughout the world, according to a press release provided by the group.
One of the ways they do that is by presenting “Live Your Dream Awards” at the end of each year.
The cash awards are presented to women heads of household “who are working to better their lives through additional schooling and/or skills training,” according to the release.
Those interested should contact past-president Esther Shutt, 801-294-4542. Applications are due in November.
The recently elected officers are Julie Wooddward, president; Peggy Robertson, treasurer, and Jackie Duerden, who is returning as secretary. Outgoing officers are Shutt and Gail Cheever, who served as secretary.
Throughout the year, members of the organization hold fundraisers to finance the awards and other projects that meet their goals.
A Fall Fashion Show, a Christmas Home Tour and Boutique, and a spring Junque Sale are a few of the events scheduled.
Soroptimists have had a Bountiful branch for 40 years, according to information provided. The international organization was estabslished in the early 1900s.
