What is a Soroptimist?

Soroptimist an international service organization devoted to the betterment of women.

The organization takes its name from Greek words:

"Soro" = Women; "Optimist" = Best for

The Soroptimist mission is to improve the lives of women and girls
in local communities and worldwide.

SI of Noyo Sunrise is one of 3 Soroptimist clubs on the Mendocino Coast. The other two are SI of Fort Bragg (meets for lunch every week), and SI of Mendocino, which meets for lunch 2x every month. There are 56 clubs in the Region, thousands in North America; over 80 thousand members worldwide.

Noyo Sunrise is the weekly 'BREAKFAST CLUB' for women who prefer to meet with their club before going to work or exercise--starts their Tuesday just right. There is an afterwork social the 3rd Tues/month.

Noyo Sunrise members are from various backgrounds and interests, including teaching, medical professions, private businesses, forestry, arts and crafts, and home supply.


  • Soroptimists are committed to the mission of making a difference in the lives of women and girls - in their communities, their countries, and throughout the world.

  • Soroptimists are willing to give their time and talent to raise funds and provide service to others in their communities. 

  • Soroptimists are persons of action - not someone who waits for others to improve the lives of those less fortunate.

Meetings: The SI of Noyo Sunrise is a club for those whose work doesn't regularly break for lunch. Our club meets (before work) on Tuesday mornings from 8-9am, at the Fort Bragg Senior Center Library, 490 North Harold Street. 

Anyone is welcome to attend. Usually there is a speaker from the community which makes every meeting fun and interesting. The club is "dark" (on vacation) from Thanksgiving to New Years. There is one social gathering after work in lieu of a morning meeting on the 3rd Tuesday of the month.
