Soroptimist means “best for women” and that’s what we strive to be—an organization of women at their best helping other women to be their best. As a volunteer organization of business and professional women we feel uniquely qualified to help women and girls live their dreams.
By initiating club projects that benefit women and girls, and by honoring women who help women and girls, Soroptimist clubs and members improve the status of women and girls. Soroptimist projects and programs aid women economically, and empower them to make positive changes in their lives and their communities.

Talbot Soroptimists raise funds for our awards through our annual Jigsaw Puzzle Jamboree and our Annual Flower Sale in early Spring, along with other fundraisers throughout the year. Click here to download the flyer for this year’s Live Your Dream Award.
In this FUN-raising event, teams of four members compete to assemble the same 500-piece jigsaw puzzle in the fastest time. There are prizes for first, second, and third place teams. The registration fee is $25 per person or $100 for the team of four. If you wish to register as an individual, placement on a team is guaranteed. A tasty lunch is included in the registration fee.
People of all ages – friends, families, co-workers – are encouraged to form a team and enjoy this wintertime activity! All proceeds from the Jigsaw Puzzle Jamboree support Soroptimist “Best for Women” projects locally, including the club’s new Dream It, Be It Career Support program for adolescent girls.
