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.

Flu shots may have been available since September, but that didnt stop us from packing them in for last months Health Fair. Possibly it was people getting out on what turned out to be a beautiful day. Or maybe it was all the other great vendors, information, and freebies that got people in the door. Whatever it was, it started with a crowd waiting to get in.

A long line snaked through the building, stopping at various tables. Some people got their blood pressure checked, or ???. There are those that think that people come only for the free flu shots, but out of the over 250 people who showed up, only 150 of them got shots. A few of those even managed to get their passport completed for a chance at the many raffles provided by our vendors.

For those that came a little later in the morning, they were able to view things at a more

leisurely pace and were able to stop at each table, talk to the various vendors, and pick up lots of useful information before getting their shot. Towards the end it slowed to a trickle, but it was a steady trickle. The sad part were the people who showed up, or called up, wanting shots.

Thanks to the volunteers who came to set up and work the fair, all of our wonderful vendors who came out to make this a success. Additional thanks go our to the Highland Police Departments Citizens Patrol for their excellent traffic control. Mostly we would like to thank our event sponsors, the Physicians of Beaver Medical Group and the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians.
