In celebration the approaching of Thanksgiving, this month we’d like to give thanks to Guadalupe “Lupe” Rozzi. Lupe, or Kitty as she is more commonly known, has been a member, along with her husband, John, for over 40 years! It was just being established and her friends were going to the center, so she knew about it. She has watched it blossom from a place with a few activities to the bustling center it is today. She loves to help us out. When she first started the Center was participating in a fundraiser called “Points for Profit.” She would help us gather and calculate points which were then converted into money for us. After that program went away she has been helping us by selling 50/50 tickets at our special events. However, all of her hard work isn’t contained to fundraising. She also helps out at smaller events and the special events by helping to set up, serve, or clean up. Originally from San Bernardino, she eventually met her husband John after he moved from Rhode Island. They both worked at Norton AFB. She was a supply clerk, and he worked with computers. Together they have two kids and six grandkids. Thanks Kitty for helping to keep us in the black.

Well, it was beginning to look a lot like Christmas...at the stores, but those dreaming of a white Christmas, had to look elsewhere. However the spirit of Christmas was evident everywhere, especially here at the Highland Senior Center. The crowd was a mix of old and new faces as was our entertainment.

We started with a brand new act, Ron Wood, who got people tapping their toes with some oldies but goodies, such as Aint She Sweet and Baby Face. Once the crowd was fired up he switched to festive, and more modern, Christmas songs.

Next came a short intermission, featuring some extra special guests. Santa and Mrs. Claus were on hand to make sure we stayed on the good list, and mingled with the crowd. Now you cant help but mention Santa Claus and hot chocolate and cookies, so we passed out plates of cookies and a steaming hot cup of cocoa to all the good boys and girls in the audience. (Luckily no one was left out!). By then it was time for the big man himself to head back up to the North Pole and finish his final preparations.

With our stomachs satiated, it came time for a very familiar face at our annual party. Harriet Foucher and her Kristal Bells. Unfortunately Harriet got caught up in some holiday traffic and was unable to make it before the party ended. However, we look forward to her coming back next year. And with that it was time to bid adieu.

Special thanks to our talented musicians and volunteers to helped us to spread a little Christmas cheer. Finally we would like to thank our sponsors, Don Davis and Aetna, and the San Manuel Tribe of Mission Indians for sponsoring the event.
