We are a multigenerational group of women who welcome you to join us and see what we're all about: Improving the lives of women and girls.
Our organization, Soroptimist International of Vacaville, was established on Aug. 20, 1960, and our charter president was Elsie Sasser.
We currently meet on Tuesdays at Fuso's Restaurant in downtown Vacaville. Meetings start at 12:15.
We hold a business meeting on the second Tuesday of each month. We plan something fun whenever a fifth Tuesday rolls around. We don't meet in July, and meetings in December are optional.
