“Life should be an adventure!”- Sharon Lacey

In addition to being a sought-after keynote speaker, Sharon is also an internationally touring headlining comedian. She performs in comedy clubs all across the US and Canada, and has been to Iraq twice to entertain US troops. She’s also been on four comedy tours of Africa, where she performs for Ugandan audiences in two of their tribal languages.

Sharon is the author of  A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO DEMENTIA: A Stand Up Comedian’s Race Against Time.

All of this comes after Sharon’s earlier careers as a radio DJ, television news producer, and a national award winning middle school teacher.

Sharon’s 30 minute presentation, Turn Your Challenges Into Opportunities, will be followed by questions and answers.

Holiday Music

Compiled by Eileen Kelly-Meyer, we’ll watch and hear a collection of holiday music to lift our spirits and thoughts for the season.


  • A holiday bag with Sharon Lacey’s book, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Dementia, and two handmade bracelets (the sale of the bracelets supports a women’s organization in Uganda)
  • Three surprise holiday gift bags of donations made by our own Knitting Circle and Art & Crafts groups

*The club’s tradition for the December holiday meeting is to remember others less fortunate than ourselves. Have in mind your favorite charity so that if your name is drawn, a donation can be sent to that organization in your honor.
