Installation of newly elected officers for Soroptimist International of Calaveras County for club year 2019/2020 was held on Friday, June 21, 2019, at Yummy Ha Ha Ice Cream Shop in historic downtown Angels Camp. Our own Paulette Stelte and Carol Jones Giannini did the honors of installing the officers for the coming year.
The ice cream shop’s back patio was decorated with colorful flowers, balloons and summer fun. Since June 21, is the Summer Solstice & the longest day of the year, our presenters chose SUMMER as our theme and the pineapple as the fruit of the summer. Officers and members were encouraged to stand tall, wear a crown and be sweet on the inside!
To recognize the jobs of each officer, unique gifts and summer items (contained in lovely, bright colored pineapple bags) included chill napkins, festive wine & drink glasses, note pads, wine, chocolates, hand wipes, wine, pineapple candles and much, much more. All were thrilled with their mementos and gifts.
Members and guests enjoyed scoops of ice cream and cookies. Guests included President Julie’s husband Mike and Ginger Takahashi. The group was invited to attend an informal gathering at Angels Mexican Kitchen following the installation.

What an honor to have Sierra Pacific Regional Governor, Gail Dekreon as our Installing Officer. Additional Regional guests included: Current Sierra Pacific Region District II Director, Beth Stochl and Past Sierra Pacific Region District Director, Yolanda Rivera. Family and many dear friends surrounded SICC Incoming President, Patsy Gonzalez. There was a great crowd of well wishers who enjoyed a delicious taco salad bar with cake pops for dessert!
Patsy’s motto reads: Let’s be solid as a rock: Commitment and experience can lay a firm foundation. Governor Gail researched rocks forwards and backwards! She made jokes about rocks & presented each installed officer with a rock that depicted her challenges and capabilities for this coming club year.

In keeping with President Carol’s theme of the ocean, the room was beautifully decorated with an abundance of sea shells, fishing nets, ocean scenes and signs to the beach. Each of those installed received very clever props to carry out their new roles. President Carol’s theme is: “Individually we are a drop, together we are an ocean.”
We were so fortunate to be joined for this Installation by Sierra Pacific Region Governor Tana Elizandro and Sierra Pacific Region District II Director, Yolanda Rivera. Both brought their husbands.
