Volunteer of the Month
The Nutrition Crew
This month weíd like to show special thanks to a hardworking team, our Nutrition Crew. A group of individuals, each with their own job, who come together to form a great team. Marge Booth heads the Nutrition as she has for the past 36 years. She handles all the paperwork and oversees the crew. She has seen many changes in personnel, especially in the past several years, but she has remained our constant. Helping her out are Virginia Kauztman, Don Clay, Joan Breiten, and Rosetta Love. These members come in on varying days from 8 am to 2 pm. During this time they make coffee, and prepare the kitchen by cleaning, and setting up the dining room table. When the food comes they get it ready, serve it, and then afterwards, clean up the kitchen and dining room. We would like to thank these hard working volunteers for their daily dedicated service.

On the first Thursday of every month you can come in and choose from 500 to 1000 of various glass, crystal, plastic, metal, shell, paper, or wood beads and make a bracelet for yourself or a friend. Beaders are charged only $5 for two bracelets, which covers the costs of materials. The activity is led by Bob DíAmato. He has been beading for over 20 years. He is self taught, due to boredom. He was looking for something to keep his mind and hands busy. He has taught classes in the past, but for us he lets the individuals use their imagination. He will guide if necessary, but lets the beaders let their creative juices flow.

Health Fair 2012
By: Mike Sylva
Maybe it was the prior rain, and gloomy skies. Or maybe it was the lack of a flu shot shortage, or concerns of a flu epidemic. Or maybe, just maybe, it was because of the seemingly year round availability of shots. Whatever the reason was the crowd was a bit thinner this year at the centerís annual Health Fair. That made it a bit nicer for those who did show up at they werenít standing in line for a hour, getting impatient and simply wanting to get their flu shot and go. Still, for free flu shots this year, when other places are charging $25 a shot, we thought more people would brave the cold weather.
This year people came in at a more leisurely pace and were able to stop at each table, talk to the various vendors, and pick up lots of useful information before getting their shot. It may have been a trickle, but at least it was a steady trickle with new people arriving all morning. The sad part is the inevitable amount of phone calls we will receive after the event wanting to know if they can still come in for a shot.
Thanks to the volunteers who came to set up and work the fair, all of our wonderful vendors who came out to make this a success. Additional thanks go our to the Highland Police Departmentís Citizenís Patrol for their excellent traffic control. Mostly we would like to thank our event sponsors, the Physicians of Beaver Medical Group and the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians.
