Sunset This Week: A Little Official Business & A Lot of Holiday Fun!

OFFICIAL BUSINESS

Club ElectionsElections this week! All club members should make every effort to attend on Thursday to cast their votes for next year’s leadership team. Our elected leaders are critical to the success of our club, and are the driving force behind what direction we will grow in. So, it is a VERY important night for the Sunset Club!

HOLIDAY FUN

We will follow up the official business with some festive holiday gift wrapping! The club is sponsoring gifts for 20 children through our partner organization, Ready for Life! The gifts will be distributed on Saturday afternoon at the Ready for Life Holiday Party, so we have to get them wrapped up and ready for Santa’s approval!

Sunset Elves Hit the Streets of St. Pete!

Holidat Tree Delivery 2014

‘Tis the season for lots of fun and meaningful service opportunities!

Some of our favorite projects of the year happen around the holidays, and today’s project is at the top of that list. Each year, the Sunset Club joins forces with the YMCA for their Neighbor to Neighbor Christmas Program. The program has brought the community together to gift low income families with the spirit of the holidays. Families sponsored through this program receive a live Christmas tree with decorations, books, bikes, toys and a gift card for a holiday meal.

We had 18 volunteers pile into 5 vehicles to help deliver 300 trees around St. Pete to spread some festive cheer to our neighbors in need. TONS of fun and holiday spirit was shared by all!
