2011 Annual Membership Meeting - Michael Hinton Speaking

Join members of Soroptimist International of Novato, a group of professional and business women, at our special annual membership meeting for a great speech, fellowship, and explore volunteer opportunities for the betterment of girls and women, both locally and globally.  

On the heels of the 80th anniversary of the federal penitentiary on “The Rock”, a.k.a., the Alcatraz Island, we invited Mary Marvier and her sister, Jeannie Comerford, to come and talk about their experience of growing up in Alcatraz.  Mary “spent more than a decade on Alcatraz when it was a federal penitentiary, and she loved just about every minute — it was her home.  When she was mere weeks old, her family moved from Pennsylvania so her father, James Comerford, could take a corrections officer’s job on the island.It would be her home for the next 12 years until the family moved off Alcatraz in 1954.”

Mingle with our members and find out about various ways of giving back to our local community while building friendship with a group of positive, caring and energetic women.

Prepaid Reservation is required.   Please call membership chair, Sylvia Barry, at (415) 717-0293 or email Sylvia (Sylvia@SylviaBarryRE.com) with your questions.
