The Cobram Courier - - NEWS - By Kim­ber­ley Price

Sorop­ti­mist In­ter­na­tional Co­bram Ba­rooga held a gala din­ner to cel­e­brate its 25th an­niver­sary.

The night at Co­bram Ba­rooga Golf Club was thor­oughly en­joyed by many past and present mem­bers.

Guests in­cluded the Sorop­ti­mist Fed­er­a­tion of South West Pa­cific pres­i­dent and the Sorop­ti­mist In­ter­na­tional Vic­to­ria pres­i­dent.

Guests were treated to a won­der­ful night and an in­sight into guest speaker and newly-ap­pointed Fairly Foun­da­tion chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Cheryl Ham­mer’s life.

From hum­ble be­gin­nings in Tocumwal, through a va­ri­ety of ca­reers, to ar­riv­ing at her cur­rent po­si­tion, Ms Ham­mer has ex­pe­ri­enced a lot. Her abil­ity to con­tin­u­ally rise to dif­fer­ent chal­lenges has led to great achieve­ments in her pro­fes­sional life. Her in­spir­ing story de­lighted the room.

Orig­i­nal Sorop­ti­mist In­ter­na­tional mem­bers Karen Bruce, Ma­ree Ho­gan and Lynn Knight were hon­oured on the night with 25-year mem­ber­ship badges.

The trio cut the birth­day cake, which was beau­ti­fully made and dec­o­rated by pres­i­dent Noe­lene Ack­erly.
