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.

It mustve been a sign. Just in time for our Christmas party it started snowing in the mountains giving us a nice Currier and Ives background. Down the hill it was nice and chilly, albeit a tad on the wet side, but it needs to rain down here for it to snow up there. Besides we desperately needed the rain so well take it as a Christmas gift.

The rain seemed to keep some away, but didnt dampen the enthusiasm of those who came to party. As the rain dissipated guests slowly wandered in giving us a crowded room. Guests were entertained by Ed Ford and Jack Meilke with a Christmas Carol sing-a-long, and Harriet Fourcher and her Kristal Bells before special guest, Ole Saint Nick himself showed up. When hes not making toys you might know him as board president John Rago.

However as popular at the Man with the bag is, the crowd went wild when Elvis (aka: Lil Joe-E) showed up belting out his hits and shaking hip hips. Thanks to those who braved the weather to show up, with special thanks to our sponsors, Don Davis with Aetna, and the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians
