Volunteer of the Month
This month we’d like to shine the light on Beverly Vann. Beverly has been working in the Trip Office. In the office she helps people sign up for trips, filling out forms and receipting money. Sometimes she even goes on the trips to help out in any way she can. Dianne Kassotis, the Trip Coordinator has nothing but praise for Beverly. She says that anytime Dianne asks her for something she always says yes, with no hesitation. Beverly is always willing to help and is very friendly to everyone she meets. This is not the only place where she has volunteered. In the past she has volunteered at St. Bernardines and Kaiser Hospital. Not always a volunteer, but always taking care of others, she even served as a daycare provider. Originally from Muscatine, Iowa, she later moved out to Yuba City, CA to live near her sister. Then moved down to Southern California when her husband got a job down here. Together they have 4 kids, 3 grandkids, and 2 great grandkids. Thanks Beverly for the good times.

Description: Sharpen your pencils and pick an apple for the teacher. After a short summer break its time to head back to school. The ever popular Highland Senior University is ready to enroll those who still have a desire to learn. The Highland Senior Center’s annual Back to School registration is set for Friday, August September 4th. Registration begins at 9:00 a.m and runs until 1:00 p.m. Numbers are handed out before registration begins and people are called back according to when they arrived, so it’s first come, first served. So if you want to ensure a seat make sure not to be tardy. No prior registrations are allowed. If you try, you may just end up in detention cleaning the chalkboard erasers! Fall classes begin September 8th.

Yoga Teacher Goes World Wide
By: Mike Sylva
Yuki Kugimiya, our Yoga instructor, is now recognized worldwide! Yuki was already trained in Sendo, but wanted to expanded on what he knew. He then went back to school, attending the Bodden Institute for Yoga Holistic Studies, a registered Yoga School with the International Yoga Alliance which consists of over 55 countries.
After completing 200 hours of learning additional physical and theoretical aspects of Yoga, he also had to do a practicum, actually teaching to students. He spent every weekend for 6 month going to classes and doing homework. He did very well, not only becoming certified but also graduating as their valedictorian.
Now Yuki is able to teach yoga in over 55 different countries (although he plans to stay with us for many years). Congratulations to Yuki for this outstanding achievement. You can congratulate him yourself, or take some yoga lessons. Just stop by the exercise room on Wednesdays and Fridays at 10:00 am for a stress free time.
