    Ms Sunshine .... (hmmmm, who is this?)

Hello, I have taken the position of "Sunshine Person" (lady) if you chose. My job will be to let you know that our Ski and Rec club is here to acknowledged events that happen in our personal life. These events aren't meant to be noisy, but to let one know that we are here to care. Good,bad,sad, happy moments. So should you want to share, feel free to email, call and let me know how I can be there to acknowledge the event, with a card, from the club. Any suggestion are all ways welcome. Looking forward to your messages.... As ever, Maria Duran
