Following the Appreciation Luncheon, Kare Bears members donated their own funds for the purchase of items to fill Blessing Bags for distribution to residents in the SunBird community.
Many hours of service were donated by Kare Bears members. We are here during the summer season for Celebrations of Life, greeting cards, and collections for the fairs. Anyone interested in joining our organization will find member application sheets in the SunBird lobby, and are encouraged to contact a board member. The board has begun drawing up interesting ideas to forward our quest to provide service and earn monies for the many needy charity organizations and our own HOA. During the summer months, Kare Bears members and their guests will meet for a luncheon in the Horizon Room the second Wednesday of each month at 11:30 a.m. No business will occur at the summer meetings, only a meet and greet luncheon to get better acquainted. The next regular meeting will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 18, at 1 p.m. in the SunBird ballroom.
Thank you, SunBird community, for your continued support of the SunBird Kare Bears. We couldn’t do it without your generosity and particularly supporting our fairs, concerts, and style shows. We like bringing the various activities to you for your enjoyment.
