After being restricted from holding the 2020-21 Installation of Officers in 2020 (due to Covid 19), there was much joy (and hugging) demonstrated as the above officers were installed on Wednesday, June 23, 2021 at the Historic Murphys Hotel. Paulette Stelte, the Installing Officer with assistance from Stacy Joyner, brought fun and laughter to the event. Flamingos were the theme of the evening & everywhere one looked there was flamingo memorabilia and decorations. The theme of the evening was “Life is all about balance!” (like the beautiful flamingo as they balance on one leg).
The elegant Mark Twain Ballroom, upstairs at the Hotel, was filled with many SICC members, husbands and guests. Rave reviews from all were heard as we helped ourselves to the fabulous buffet. Wine & cocktails were served by smiling, hotel co-owner, Brian Goss. He kept our glasses filled with water & delivered our delicious cheesecake desserts.
Each new Board Member was called to the microphone where Paulette reminded them of their duties and responsibilities for this coming year. All were presented with various flamingo items like a water bottle, a water squirter and a flamingo stress squeezer. Stacy Joyner received a flamingo head bopper to recognize the important job that she has as our Treasurer. Paulette shared a few details about each BOD member as well as their motto for life.
Vice President, Robin Galvan and President, Sarah Oskey, both received flamingo boppers (to wear on their heads). Designed for relaxing after upcoming Board and Member meetings, both were presented with flamingo floating rings (Maybe to use in Sarah’s pool?). Sarah was honored, as our 2021-22 President with a striking flamingo bag from Mingo’s on Main, a beautiful pink boa, a fancy drink shaker and a book, “A Special Place for Women” which she promises to route among the membership. Sarah then shared her goals and dreams for this upcoming year and encouraged all to join committees we are passionate about. She wants to find new, exciting ways for SICC to become more well-known in the county by helping more and more women and girls live their dreams! Sarah’s motto for the coming year is: “Making a Visible Impact!” Her passion is Dream-It, Be-It: Career Support for Girls.

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.
