Service is an important part of our organization. Our Volunteer Committee arranges volunteer opportunities for our members who would like to share their time and talents with others. Our Sunshine Lady is also ready to help support members who are experiencing the loss of a dear one, are hospitalized, or have a long-term illness. Help the Sunshine Lady spread her sunshine by informing her of the need.
