Soroptimist International of Hutchinson was chartered on April 27, 1947, which makes this month our 75th anniversary! Times have changed, but our mission is the same: to improve the lives of women and girls in the Hutchinson, Kansas area.
Soroptimist of Hutchinson participates in programs on the local level, depending on the specific needs of our community.
Major club projects include the annual Hutchinson Women’s Show and the Free Family Health Fair which are held simultaneously in adjoining buildings at the Kansas State Fairgrounds. Proceeds from local projects have funded cash awards to Reno County women who want to further their education and teenage girls who volunteer in our community.
In the photo below our charter members are posing for a club photo at the first Soroptimist International of Hutchinson banquet held on April 27, 1947. They certainly dressed up for the occasion!
