Soroptimists International of Fallon -- Live Your Dream

Soroptimists International of Fallon -- Live Your Dream

Did you know that in 1997, Soroptimists of International (SI) of Fallon founded Pioneer Park on the corner of North Maine Street and D Street as a tribute to the Pioneer Women of Churchill County? Did you know that SI of Fallon sponsors numerous scholarships for girls and women every year? Did you know that the ladies of SI of Fallon volunteer once a month at the Fallon Daily Bread, cooking and serving hot dinners to those in need? Did you know the name Soroptimist means “Best for Women”? Everything this group does goes toward improving the lives of women and girls, and its members, myself included, enjoy every minute. SI of Fallon is an amazing women’s organization that does amazing things in this community and beyond. The heart of this Fallon group is the ladies that compose its membership. Some of these ladies have been members for years – 20 and 30 years! That’s some dedication and heart. Tuesday, March 23 was yet another example of that when the group met for their monthly social at The Grid. Fun is always involved with this group – I can attest to that. But they do also take care of organization business such as the $2,000 Live Your Dream (LYD) scholarship awarded to Dallas Shultz that night. SI of Fallon’s website states, “The LYD award is to assist women who provide primary support for their family and to give them resources they need to improve their education, skills and employment opportunities.” The ladies celebrated Sue Chambers’ 20-year anniversary with the group that was on March 1. Both Shultz and Chambers were cheered by the group, but that’s what ladies who care about each other and a shared mission do for each other.

One of my most favorite stories Paul told dated back to the late 60s or early 70s and it revolved around him killing a deer way out in the mountains. Naturally the deer ran down into a deep canyon and died. Knowing that it would take him forever to haul it out he devised an awesome plan. After preparing the deer he drove back to NAS Fallon and rustled up a SAR crew and they flew out and picked up the deer. Of course it was labeled as a training flight but what the hell in those days you could do that sort of thing. Rest in Peace my friend until we meet again!!Comment publication date: 4/11/24, 1:15 PMComment source: Obituary - LCDR Paul N PflimlinComment author: THughesComment text: So sad to hear.

I remember her fondly from the days of my youth at Northside Elementary, many years ago. She and Mrs. Rowe were my favorite office ladies! I am so sorry to hear of her passing.
