THANK YOU to the Sandi Besse Family Trust for supporting this beloved event. This year, Illumination Night is in memory of Sandi. To know her, was to truly love her. She is deeply missed.
Sandi followed in her family’s entrepreneurial footsteps, combining her love of community and business acumen to build a successful real estate agency, Shell Pointe Real Estate in Onset, which quickly became one of the premier real estate agencies in the area.
Whenever asked, Sandi was always honored to serve her community. She was known for her infectious smile, loving spirit and commitment to the community through volunteerism. Recognized as Wareham Woman of the Year, Sandra’s contribution to Onset will be long remembered. Over the years, she was a member and one of the first Presidents of the Onset Bay Association, Onset Zoning Board, Wareham Finance Committee and Onset Prudential Committee.
The best way to honor Sandi is to "Live like Sandi" with a bright light and kindness towards everyone you meet as she always did.
Thank you to the Wareham Community Events Committee for their advertising support!
