This month we\'d like to give our thanks to Jane Desmarais. Jane IS our bingo program. She is in charge fo the bingo, and has been volunteering for the program for years. In fact, in the past year, so only missed on day! Every Monday and alternate Saturdays, she has sold bingo programs, called numbers, and sold ice cream as a bingo fundraiser. When she first came to the Highland Senior Center, nearly 25 years ago, she was taking trips with a longtime friend, Joyce Owen, who happened to also run our trip office. One day Joyce asked Jane if she would volunteer in the trip office, which she did. Jane did that for a few years and has been known to volunteer there if needed, as well as in our Thrift Store. She has even modeled for us, in the past, in our Fashion Show. Originally from Detroit, Michigan, she came out west with her husband to escape the cold. Once out here she began working for Sears, which she did for 31 years as a Department Manager. Thanks Jane for answering our call for callers.
