This month we don’t just have one Volunteer to show kudos upon, we have two! Ed & Vivian Foster are our newest Thrift Store volunteers. They actually came to us thanks to Vivian who was a member. Once they retired following twenty-five years of retail experience, Vivian told Ed that they should help us out at the Thrift Store. That was all it took. They first started out by bringing in store shelves and then by arranging the stock. Now they work 1-2 days a week moving the items from our center to your house. Ed was originally from Fort Huron, Michigan, and came west to Long Beach thanks to the navy. It was fate that the two met at the Central City Mall (the Carousel mall to you youngsters) where they both worked, each taking turns as the other’s supervisor at various stores. They worked so well together they ended up with six kids, fifteen grandkids, and eight great-grandkids! Thanks to Ed & Vivian for arranging our store and for arranging your time to help us out.

CHIEF OF POLICE NEWSLETTER Highland Police Department - Captain Sam Fisk Don’t Be A Victim IRS Scam Alert Be aware of the bad guys– Con –Artists prey on victims using these common techniques: • Con-Artists pretend to be IRS agents and threaten to arrest you if you don’t provide immediate over – the-phone payment. IRS agents will never contact you by telephone or email. Never provide ANYONE with personal Information over the phone. • Email scams trick victims into thinking they are receiving official emails from the IRS. They include links to fraudulent web sites. These sites ask for Social Security numbers and personal information, which is then used to file false tax return. • Criminal steal mail from secured and unsecured mail boxes. We urge you to drop off important documents directly to the US postal Office. Message from Captain Fisk Hello Highland and 2018 ! I hope your new year’s resolutions included giving back to your community. Volunteerism is what makes Highland a great city to call home. As we welcome in 2018, we have to be mindful of potential fraud or scams you may experience. Follow some of these helpful tips and keep you and your family from being a victim. Sam Fisk
