Soroptimist International of Saddleback Valley program meeting January 25 will have an informative presentation on Eagle Credit Unions program called Bite of Reality.
Bite of Reality is a two-and-a-half-hour, hands-on simulation that appeals to teens while giving them a taste of real-world financial realities. Teens are given a fictional occupation, salary, spouse and family, student loan debt, credit card debt, and medical insurance payments. The teens then walk around to various table-top stations to “purchase” housing, transportation, food, clothing, household necessities, day care, and other needs. This interactive activity teaches teens how to make financial decisions and gives them a better understanding of the challenges of living on a budget. Teens will have to deal with a pushy “car salesperson” and a commission-based “realtor,” and weigh their wants versus their needs. There’s even a “Fickle Finger of Fate” that will give some of the students unexpected “expenses” or “windfalls”—just like in real life.

Community leaders are welcome to come and learn about this program to determine if they would like their girls to participate in Bite of Reality.

Our Annual Blanket Making Event was a HUGE SUCCESS!!!!

Wednesday 11/13/13 Soroptimist International of Lake Forest made “no-sew” fleece blankets.  These blankets were made at our program meeting by thirty friends, relatives and neighbors of our Soroptimist club.   TWENTY blankets were made by the group and will be donated to those in need right here in our local community.  The size of the group that turns out to make the blankets is growing each year and everyone is already looking forward to next year.  It is always very heart warming to make something with the hopes of making a difference.  Thank you to all our guests and members who made this a wonderful event.
Thank you Elephant Bar, Laguna Hills Mall for donating 20% of the proceeds raised by our club!  December's party was relaxing, fun and profitable in helping our club work towards its number one goal of helping women and girls in our community improve their lives
