Scope and content

This scrapbook documents various activities of the Soroptimist Club of the Sudbury District from 1968 to their 25th anniversary in 1974. Included are photographs and newspaper clippings from the Soroptimist Scholarship Award Dinner on November 3rd, 1969 at which Edith McLennan, President of the Soroptimist Club of the Sudbury Nickel District, awarded four young student nurses their scholarships. Award recipients present in the photographs are: Margaret Houle, Louise Picard and Mary Hagan, all winners of the Edna L. Moore Scholarships, and Bonita Groulx, winner of the Soroptimist Award. The scrapbook also contains newspaper clippings covering other Soroptimist Club activities and general happenings in the community, including the presentation of a citizenship award to Christine Kleber, a high school student from Lively, Ontario, based on an essay she wrote explaining her commitment to her role in the community; the donation of books to the Sudbury Public Library about First Nations history in Canada, which was part of a larger project undertaken by the Eastern Canadian region of the Soroptimists to promote knowledge of First Nations culture, and a Christmas dinner held by the Soroptimist Club for 100 members of the Soutar Senior Citizens Club. The scrapbook also contains an honourary membership certificate presented to the 'Sudbury Club' by the Eastern Canada Region of the Soroptimists Federation of the Americas Inc. for increasing active members by 20% between March 31, 1969 and March 31, 1970, as well as three pages from the May-June 1971 issue of 'The American Soroptimist,' which includes a photograph of Christine Maria Kleber, as well as other young men and women from across North America who received a 1971 Youth Citizenship Award. Three greeting cards from the Soroptimist Clubs of Thunder Bay, Oshawa and District and Verdun LaSalle congratulating the Sudbury Nickel District chapter on their 25th Anniversary, as well as a handwritten note on the occasion from Nora Jean Quigley, have also been placed inside the scrapbook. Two identical brochures from the Soroptimist International Association promoting their clubs are also included.
