VISTA, California, June 30, 2021Soroptimist International of Vista and North County Inland held its Installation of Officers at a potluck brunch held outdoors on Saturday, June 26, 2021 at a member Sherry Luz‘s home in Vista. This year’s theme was “Traveling the Soroptimist World,” reflecting the international reach of Soroptimist as well as the fact that incoming President Melinda Jarrell owns her own travel agency, Winner Destinations. In addition to installing the board, we also inducted one new member, Paige McWey.

Missing from the festivities was outgoing club President Assly Sayyar, who was sick in bed. Filling in for her was Lani Beltrano. Assly has served ably as club president for three consecutive terms and members wish her a speedy recovery! We will miss her annual dispensements of the “Sacred Stones of Sayyar”! This year she signed on to be President-Elect so she is still on the board.
