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.

Featured Activity

The city of Highland and Highland Area Chamber of Commerce filled with streets with civic pride, as well as red with and blue, as they helped the U.S. to celebrate its 236th birthday. Old Glory lined the parade route waving to the nearly 100 parade entries. The streets were also lined with patriots, cheering on the colorful floats, clowns, classic car, police cars, fire engines, horses, and numerous other celebrants as they streamed down the parade route.

The Grand Marshall was our very own Penny Lilburn, who was selected for her work with for the community. The Highland Senior Center was also represented with its own flotilla of kazoo playing band members riding our decorated seniormobile. The group played George M. Cohan favorites Youre A Grand Old Flag, and Yankee Doodle Dandy as well as the revolutionary hit Yankee Doodle, down the parade route.

Our float was just one of many groups who showed up not only to promote themselves, but to honor this great nation. We would like to thank everyone who showed up to show their pride America and especially those who either rode and played, or supported our group on the sidelines.
