soroptimist Memorial Garden
April 18, 2018

Efforts are underway to renovate the Soroptimist Memorial Garden located on the bike path at the corner of Esplanade Ave and The Crater Lake Parkway.  With the help of Todd Kepple, Klamath County Museum Director and Native Plant Society President and member of the Native Plant Society Sarah Mallaby, the garden now showcases plants that are eco-friendly to our area.  Many thanks to Todd and Sarah for their help in plant selection, site selection and some serious pruning.

Community Baby ShowerBaby_shower

The women of Soroptimist International of Klamath Falls have been assisting women and children in this community for 70 years with hundreds of thousands of dollars.

They have been transforming lives through education, inspiration, empowerment and enabling opportunities, according to Molly Hamilton.

“The vision of our club is for women and girls of this community to reach their full potential and aspire for more in their lives; to accomplish their dreams and support them along the way,” she said.

Carol Coker, the supervisor of the Healthy Families Program, said “They have been nothing short of miracle workers. Every year, they supply our program with baby items that our families so desperately need.”

For 14 years running, the club has provided an annual “community baby shower” that supports the program with a full year of supplies for the children and families they serve. The items that are donated cover every aspect and age from birth to 3 years old. Clothing, bathing tubs and supplies, diapers, wet ones, diaper bags, strollers, toys, books, formula, socks, bibs, car seats and more.

This year alone, the club donated over $5,300 worth of items to support the program. In 14 years, this community baby shower has supplied Healthy Families with over $50,000 in donations to preserve the programs ability to run strong and provide hope, kindness and inspiration to the families they serve.
