Soroptimist International of Manassas recognized two of its members for forty years of membership in the local volunteer organization. Audrey Moore of Manassas and Linda Simms of Nokesville were both presented with a pin at the club’s recent membership meeting.

Founded in 1956, the Manassas club is part of Soroptimist International of the Americas, a global organization that works to improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment. Manassas members join with almost 80,000 Soroptimists in about 120 countries and territories to support community-based projects benefiting women and girls.

Moore and Simms have been active in the club’s programs since joining. Soroptimist’s current major program is the Live Your Dream Award, which is an annual grant for a woman who is the primary breadwinner for her family and is seeking additional education or training. The Manassas club also provides regular support for the ACTS Safe House through donations of food and hygiene items. Reflecting on her involvement in the club, Moore said, “The club puts a lot into the community, and I get a lot out of being a member. It’s a win-win for everyone!”

Soroptimist International of Manassas president Vicki Latimer made the presentation. Simms said after receiving her pin, “Little did I know when joining this club that I would be a member for forty years. I joined because my employer encouraged their managers to be involved in community service. Soroptimist has been a perfect fit for me. I formed friendships immediately and have found being involved in community outreach to be personally rewarding.”
