ALLIANCE NEWS Karin Sonnier HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM THE GLMS ALLIANCE! O ur members had a lovely holiday event at Cooking at the Cottage in St. Mathews on Tuesday, December 15. We enjoyed an extensive cooking demonstration and tasting and were provided with several recipes for holiday brunch menus by Chef Lelia Gentle. On January 19, Alliance members met at Supplies Over Seas at 1500 Arlington Avenue and were given a tour of the facility. Members then participated in a medical supplies sorting as our first service project of the new year. Having been a weekly volunteer at SOS. for several years, I feel this organization is a very worthy cause for our members to support. We appreciate Karen Womack and Melissa Mershon for allowing our group to see a behind the scenes look at the SOS program. In February, the Alliance is again supporting the Travis French Memorial Blood Drive on Friday the 19th. The time and place is to be announced. If anyone would like any further information about this event or any Alliance events, please contact me at KLSRD@ aol.com. Karin Sonnier is the 2015-2016 President of the GLMS Alliance and the wife of George Sonnier, MD. FEBRUARY 2016 7
