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.

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.
