This month we’d like to shine the light on someone who might be unfamiliar to most. Clayton “Clay” Kautzman. Unless you need to be taken for a ride. No, not that type of ride…a TAP ride! Clay is one of our top TAP drivers, taking homebound seniors to various places four days a week. It was his wife, Virginia, another TAP driver, who got him to start driving for us. Not just a TAP driver who also helps out serving dinners at our Thanksgiving but also delivers meals for our Operation Senior Claus. He’d like to do more but, while retired, he still is quite busy as a handyman at all of his and Virginia’s rental properties. Originally from Mandan, North Dakota, he came out to California due to his stint in the Marines. After getting out he went to school to learn more about computers. Following graduation he went to work for Western Union, GTE, then as a contractor out at Norton. Married to Virginia they have two boys, six grandkids, and one great-grandkid. Thanks Clay for taking time out of your busy schedule to take care of others.

As with most birthdays, its a time to get together with family and friends, eat, and celebrate. Americas birthday is no different, so to celebrate its 235th, we invited over 150 of our friends for a party! We got the party started a little early, having it on a Friday, so we would continue partying with other friends over the weekend, before the big party on the 4th.

It was a fairly warm day for bbqing, but fortunately for us we chef Marty Steinbrecher on hand to flip burgers in the heat while guests got to sit in the air-conditioned dining room with a cool drink.

Wed like to thank everyone who showed up for this special birthday lunch, especially those who R.S.V.P.d giving us a chance to order enough food, as well as those who helped us to serve. Wed also like to show our appreciation to Kaiser Permanente for sponsoring the 4th (1st) of July bbq.
