Regarding andquot;LRT developing plans for theater,andquot; (June 20), I just wanted our community to know that Soroptimist International of Crescent City is responsible for the $5,000 donation to the Lighthouse Repertory Theatre. We are a group of professional and executive women working within Del Norte organizing fund raisers such as Cow Chip Bingo, Comedy Night and See's Candy, just to name a few. It is through the efforts of our own community that we were able to make such a donation. Yes it is true that our organization was founded in Oakland in 1921, to help improve the lives of women and girls. Our slogan is andquot;Soroptimist Best for Women.andquot;
