This is how Sherry views volunteerism: “I love being in service to the Center. It allows me to give back for all the wonderful ways the Center has helped to enrich my life and live positively and with compassion.” In her 10 years at CSLSR she has put in time serving as the Alto section Leader and Co-Treasurer of the One Heart Choir, serving on the Stewardship Committee, providing bank and payroll reconciliation, as well as monthly money counting. Her love of service has taken her further out into the community where she volunteers at the Ceres Community Project and sings with a band called Jam Nation that tours to care facilities and farmers markets county wide to give the gift of music.

Featured Volunteer: Maggie Cole

The nationally recognized, award-winning Practitioner Maggie Cole has floated in and out of so many uplifting events over the last 30 years that we can’t imagine how we could have arrived at today without her.

From usher to Sunday Evening and New Years Eve service facilitator to national assistance as stage manager, decorator and event planner extraordinaire, she has given her best to so many of us.

Her favorite all time creation was the Spirit of the Rose Dancers who graced our stage for 5 years. Her reason for serving for 30 years is that the SOM philosophy, literally saved her life and has evolved her consciousness to the degree that she experiences longed for FREEDOM. Also, being in service has uncovered her creative genius, the Truth about God and herself.

We offer great gratitude to her long years of service.
