Join us on Thursday, March 9, at 9:00 a.m. in the Kingston Ballroom of the Oakwood Country Club in Sun Lakes for this very special event and brunch. We are having a donation drive for Streetlight USA. This residential center provides a one-of-a-kind program of care and healing for girls 11 through 17 years old who have been neglected, abused and/ or sex trafficked. Their mission is to transition girls from trauma to triumph! Lynda Hartzler, representing Streetlight USA, will give a presentation on the amazing and difficult work of this organization. The numbers of victims are on the rise. Let’s help by meeting some of Streetlight USA needs!

Our soloist for the brunch will be JoAnn Ogston. This talented woman performs for various services and events.

Sandy Carlson comes to us from the Lake Geneva area in William Bay, Wisconsin. This “Woman on the Go” has lived in eight states, is an avid letter writer, a published poet and mother of six. Sandy has been married 51 years and will soon have 14 grandchildren. She has learned life’s lessons through life’s challenges during her numerous moves. Her talk is entitled “Home is Where the Heart is.”
