A service organization for businesswomen founded in Oakland, California in 1921, Soroptimist today has clubs in more than 120 countries, where it works to improve the lives of women and girls. Soroptimist started in Klamath 81 years ago and the history of Soroptimist in Klamath is a history of giving back to all parts of our community.
We sat down with Chris Jones, Development Manager for Project^, the firm responsible for rebuilding. Project^ has a broad portfolio of projects that include institutional, retail, office, residential, and academic spaces. Their philosophy Is to maximize the environmental, social, and economic benefits inherent in meaningful places. Here’s what Chris had to say about their new project in downtown Klamath Falls.
During construction, the Klamath News stated that “one of the outstanding features of the High Street façade is a deeply revealed rose window which is to have sparkling stained glass, symbolic of Hope.” And very soon, Sacred Heart’s stained-glass windows will shine with a new light on our community.
