Sonny's Spirit Night

Sonny's Spirit Night

Come on out to Sonny's B-B-Q the last Wednesday of every month to support the Orange City Sororis Club.  Just mention our name and a percentage of your bill will be donated to our club.  The mission of the Sorosis Club of Orange City is to contribute to the betterment of our community and promote the welfare of children and youth in the home and community. 


The Orange City Sorosis Club is busy scaring up new victims for our 38th Annual Haunted House! This year, DEADTIME STORIES, will open on Thurs, Friday and Saturday nights from Oct 20TH through Oct 29TH.

Each of our rooms is designed around our theme and our set designers are working on their strategies to scare and horrify even the bravest. Imagine your favorite fairytales coming to life....after dark. These stories may knock you into a deeper slumber then you bargain for. 

Stay tuned...

It will take over 60 volunteers to transform our 3,000 square foot building into a functional tomb of terror. Last year we had over 2,000 visitors come through raising over $10,000. The monies we raise go toward charitable contributions benefiting area children such as scholarships and school supplies. We are in need of donations for the various costs associated with the production and creation of this event. Monetary donations are much appreciated and as we are a registered non-profit organization, your donation may be tax deductible.

 Our Collect 

Keep us, O God, from Pettiness;
Let us be large in thought, in word, in deed.
Let us be done with fault-finding
And leave off self-seeking.
May we put away all pretense
And meet each other face to face,
Without self-pity and without prejudice.
May we never be hasty in judgment
And always generous.
Let us take time for all things;
Make us to grow calm, serene, gentle.
Teach us to put into action our better impulses,
Straightforward and unafraid.
Grant that we may realize it is the
Little things that create differences;
That in the big things of life we are at one.
And may we strive to touch and to know
The great, common human heart of us all,
And, O Lord God, let us forget not to be kind.

Mary Stewart,  April 1904

Our annual banquets are a time to celebrate the end of a successful year. Each meeting begins with The Pledge of Allegiance and reciting our Collect. We then discuss current events and upcomming programs.  


At our annual Easter event volunteers hid thousands of eggs, 2 prizes were awarded for each age group, and kids were provided a free lunch. A very special thank you goes to The City of Orange City for providing a bounce house and to the Orange City Fire Department for delivering the Easter Bunny with sirens and flashing lights. The children enjoyed a free lunch, egg hunting and visiting with the Easter Bunny.

Sorosis Club Volunteers worked hard to bring this event together.  Any suggestions or comments are appreciated. Feel free to post your ideas and opinions to our blog or our facebook page.
