Susan Hess, Virginia Hosford and Nancy Johanson Paul are this year’s winners of Soroptimist International of Hood River’s Women of Distinction Awards. Each year since 1975, SIHR has honored women from Hood River County who have worked in a professional or volunteer capacity to make a significant difference in our community. Awardees are chosen from women who have been nominated by friends and peers.
An awards luncheon will be held on Wednesday, November 12th from 11:30am to 1pm at the Gorge Room at the Best Western Hood River Inn. Tickets for the luncheon are $15 each and available at the Waucoma Bookstore or by calling Soroptimist Elizabeth Garber at 541-387-2950.
Susan Hess was selected for her many dedicated years of work to improve the environment, especially in the Columbia River Gorge. Virginia Hosford, chair of the Hood River Library Foundation for four years, has spent her adult life working to improve the educational life of our community. Nancy Johanson Paul, founder of the 20 year old New Parent Services program, is honored for her many years of promoting the health and well-being of children and families in Hood River county.
Please come join us at the Gorge Room on Wednesday, November 12, to say “thank you!” to these three women who have given so much to our community!
