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.

As anyone knows, you gamble, you might win, you might lose. However Lady Luck was definitely in the Highland Senior Center and Chamber of Commerces corner as they turned out to be big winners. The two held their annual Highland Royale Casino Night & Taste of the Town Showcase fundraiser on June 17.

Held at the San Manuel Village, over 200 high rollers came to try to double or triple their bank roll. Some learned that when you gamble you walk away with experience. Other lucky gamblers were lucky enough to start with $50 chips and walk away with $100 chips. No matter what, everybody walked away with a good time, ensured by Pit Bosses Penny Lilburn and Nanette Peykani.

Our players, when they didnt have cards or dice in their hands, were able to feast on the various restaurants for the Taste of the Town contest. The Tartan Restaurant on the Peoples Choice Award, while Two Guys won the Judges Award.. Thanks to all of our sponsors, without whom this event would not have been possible: Edge Development, Robertsons, Burrtec Waste Industries, Patricia Fischer, Inland Empire 66ers, Southern California Edison, and Century 21 - Showcase (Jeff Stoffel) as well as other money, raffle, and food sponsors. Special thanks to Catrinea Houston and the Hampton Inn Suites for hosting the event. Most of all wed like to thank all those who came out to support the Casino Night and the Center and Chamber.
