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.

In just a few weeks we will be hosting our annual Highland Senior Center Golf Tournament and Outstanding Senior Recognition Award. Each year we honor a senior (or senior couple) who lives/works in the community and has exhibited a long commitment in service. This years honoree will be Charles Roberts.

Charles is currently the editor of the Highland Community News. During his tenure he has made it is job to not only inform the community about what was going on, but to also be one of its biggest promoters. Even if he doesnt belong to a service group he makes sure that we know about them, and what they are doing. This varies from meetings of the city agencies and boards, the San Bernardino County Courthouse and Federal Court in Riverside, to such clubs as: the Rotary Club of San Bernardino/Highland, the Highland Kiwanis clubs, the Highland Area Chamber of Commerce, the Highland Citizens on Patrol, the Woman\'s Club and is the Red Hat Hubby of the Radiant Rubies Red Hat Society. He let\'s us know about everything that goes on in the community. It doesnt matter what a group does. If it matters to us, it matters to him.

There are a still some open slots if you\'d like to join us for a day of golf, or if golf is not your thing, but you\'d still like to help us honor Charles for all he\'s done, you can join us for dinner. The big day takes place April 21st at the San Bernardino Public Golf Course and is open to the public. Congratulations to Charles and thank you for all that you do for your community.
