Dear Sunflower Mission Supporters:
It's finally time to pack up those winter coats and gloves. Spring is here and we are ready to kick off the season of blossoms and bunnies with some family fun! Join us for an afternoon of food, games, good company, and of course information about 2013 SM activities.

One of the goals of Sunflower Mission is to provide opportunities for younger members to step up and take on larger responsibilities. The Annual Social was that chance. Serving as a first time mentor, I was concerned about my own abilities. Could I corral an energetic young group into some type of constructive order?
Over 100 friends, members and supporters of Sunflower Mission (SM) gathered on Saturday Dec. 13, 2008 at the Dao-Le 's residence to celebrate Christmas holidays. All of us were able to put aside our worries and uncertainties in this extraordinary economic environment to enjoy a well- planned social event with family and friends.
At 7:45am, many of our summer work camp participants arrived at the gate of The Dao-Le residence. Some of them drove straight from out of town at 4am and some of them flew in from other states. They were so punctual it was refreshing and it demonstrates their enthusiasm. One shared with me that he arrived at 7am but did not ring the gate because too early.
Location: Washington D.C area

This year, Sunflower Mission hosted the annual beach retreat in Galveston. When the first group arrived at the beach house, we had the usual problem with unlocking the door to get in.
