Now, more active than ever!

In 1995 founding member Pat Hansen brought together a group of San Juan Island women with a vision for a service organization focused on the needs of women. They formed a Soroptimist chapter in Friday Harbor, chartered May 11, 1996 with 44 members. We had a busy first year and haven’t stopped! Many charter members are still active today!


From September through June, meetings are held on the first four Wednesdays of the month from Noon to 1:00pm, at Key Bank, 95 2nd Street, in Friday Harbor. In July and August we meet on the first Wednesday only for our business meeting.
