The 25th Anniversary of SOOP in Phoenix will be February 22-25, 2018 at the Hospitalitiy Services Center Guest House (SOOP). Alumni from across the United States and Canada will be joined by local persons who have vested interest in our Phoenix area programs. Plan now to attend.
In preparation for our Anniversary event we have expanded our annual Volunteer Directory to include information of our beginnings and what we do in SOOP each day. This is the story of SOOP in Arizona as well as the formation and role of Hospitality Services Center.
This book, 25 Years in Arizona, will be available for purchase later this fall as well as at the Anniversary reunion in February. If you have interest in the book please let us know so we will know how many to order in the coming months.
