Sunshine Lady: Irene Lacharite


This position was created to bring "Sunshine" to members who were feeling "under the weather" but Irene would like to evolve the position into a celebration of great events in our member's life.


If you know of a member who you would wish to celebrate please contact Irene.  It can be anything from a promotion at work, birth of a child or grandchild or school graduation!!  We want to share the "Sunshine" in our own lives with each other.
