Sunshine Club

Volunteers for the Sunshine Club for 2020/21….

Hello Loyalist residents, for those of you who are new to the community, I’d like to tell you a little about the Sunshine Club.
The club has been in existence for many years here in Loyalist helping those in their time of need.

I’d like to say a big thank you to Carol Bryant who has been a “sunshine lady’ for 8 years.  She has recently given up her spot to a new member Heidi Stevens.  Welcome aboard Heidi!
Just a reminder to LCCRA members.   If you know of someone who is hospitalized, who is having treatment for a serious disease or who’s spouse has passed… and they need a little sunshine in their lives… please call one of our sunshine ladies to make it happen.  Each lady is responsible for taking care of neighbours near where they live, so be sure to check the list for the correct phone number.
Thanks to everyone for their support.

There are presently 14 ladies in the community who make up the Sunshine Club and I’ve listed their names below and their contact numbers (please keep these in a place close to your phone for future reference). They are all volunteers and need your help to do what they do…. but I’ll explain that later.

The Sunshine ladies spring into action when someone is in need of a little sunshine in their life. They deliver gifts to those who have been bereaved of a spouse, are battling a serious illness or have been hospitalized. It can be as simple as a bottle of wine, a bunch of flowers, or a gift certificate, but this small act of kindness can brighten the day of the recipient and let them know that the community cares.

And now how you can help…. The Sunshine ladies depend on neighbours to advise them when they know a friend or neighbour in Loyalist can benefit from a Sunshine gift. Just give them a call. The Club depends on donations and we have been very fortunate in the past to receive donations from the Country Club Drive annual golf tournament. We are hopeful this tradition will continue next year we will be Covid free. If you personally would like to donate, please contact Linda McCormack.
Here’s the list of Sunshine ladies.

Stay safe and well.  Linda (McCormack)
