Mt. Pleasant Sunbeams Chapter, Memphis

St. Mary’s Sunbeams Chapter #40, Clarksville

August 2012 - “Sunbeams on the Move” St. Mary’s Sunbeams of Clarksville has had another good year of fellowship.  We kicked our year off with a joint Fishing Trip in Paris, TN with our Knights of Pythias in September.  Some of our Sunbeams feed the needy at the Soup Kitchen in Nashville for Thanksgiving.  We then traveled to Franklin, TN and donated gifts for the Christmas list at the TN Baptist Children Home.  We attended a workshop in Clarksville in celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. 

Our Head Counselor created a Black History challenge game in February followed by a similar project for Women’s History month in March.  We participated on program for both Esther Day and Palm Sunday services.  We hosted a wonderful brunch, restaurant style, of which the Sunbeams named “The Beam”.  The patrons were Mothers, Fathers, Eastern Stars, Masons, and the Knights of Pythias.  The Sunbeams acted as hostess and waitresses.  We donated food to Loaves and Fishes, a food kitchen in Clarksville.  Some of the Sunbeams also served the community by donating our time to assist Hella Court #76 in their Egyptian Tea Program. 

Some of the girls acted as greeters, managed the voter’s registration table, modeled clothing, assisted with door prizes, and surrendered entertainment.    We had Sunbeams on roll of which graduated.  All four graduates were Sunbeams for several years and served as Sunbeam Matron.  Sunbeam Rachel Anderson is attending the University of Southern California, Asanti McRae is attending the University of Alabama, Jessica Ramey is attending Rhodes College in Memphis, and KaDea Wade-George is attending Dillard University in New Orleans.  We wish them the best and God’s blessings for safety and prosperity. 

We are looking forward to a great year next year.
