Well…its Thanksgiving week. At my house, we’re busy making plans to see family and eat our favorite dishes. This time of year reminds me to think of all the blessings in my life. While I’m so fortunate in many ways, the opportunity to volunteer has always provided special blessings to me. This sentiment seems to be shared by so many Sunshine Fest committee members. Ann-Marie Morrow is a Recruitment Leader. She shared this with me.
“I became involved in Sunshine Fest when my friends Van and Dee Larson encouraged me to volunteer back in 2010. Back then there were just a handful of us sitting around a table sharing ways to honor the memory of their daughter, Shannon. The first Sunshine Fest was a success and we were off and running, literally…brrr! I feel so fortunate to be able to continue working with such a wonderful group of volunteers and I’m proud to participate and share in the Larson’s vision to build a hospitality home that will help so many in our local and surrounding communities. “
This year you can quickly and easily sign-up to volunteer at the 5th Annual Sunshine Fest on February 7, 2015. Follow this link to the online volunteer registration. There are several different options to choose from. The many pictures I’ve seen from previous years’ events include lots of smiles. So I have a feeling your face will include a smile too!
I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday filled with family, friends, great food, wonderful memories and, of course, sunshine!
Until next time,
