This month we’d like to give thanks to a familiar face, but one you might not know of in relation to the Highland Senior Center. Charles Roberts is the former editor of the Highland Community News, where he was a big supporter of the Highland Senior Center and would often visit the center to cover our events and activities. However when he retired at the end of 2017, he continued to support our center, but in a different capacity. Before retiring, he asked Jeff, the Outreach Director if we could use some volunteers, as he did not want to become bored. Well, he asked the right person, as he was immediately made a Transportation Assistance Program (TAP) driver. He volunteers to drive just about every weekday, and sometimes on weekends as well. Yet his helping us out doesn’t stop there. He also helps out in our Food Program, three days a weeks. He sorts outs the food we bring in and then helps us to pass it out to our seniors. We would also like to thank his wife, Myrna, who gives him time off from his retirement Honey Do list to help us out.

Featured Activity

This month in celebration of May being Older Americans Month, the Highland Senior Center will host its annual Fitness After Fifty celebration from May 1st to May 20nd. Join us for a free week of aerobics (May 2nd - 6th), hot lunch (May 16th - 20th), and free swimming and water aerobics all month, weekdays from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Everyone who attends any activity from May 1st through May 20th will get a ticket for each and every activity they participate in. Then on the 20th we will celebrate a free b.b.q.

During the free B.B.Q. lunch, there will be a series of raffle drawing for all of those who earned tickets during the activities. So the more activities you attend, not only the better youll feel, but also the better your chances are to win great gifts. Please sign up for events and R.S.V.P. for the BBQ no later than the morning of May 20th. But remember: Working on getting or staying healthy through diet and exercise is something that isnt made to last a week or a month. It should last a lifetime. Also dont forget to celebrate the 18th annual Senior Health & Fitness Day on Wednesday, May 25th. This years theme is \"Make Fitness a Goal for Life!\" Thats a good theme for people of all ages.
