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.

As we prepared for fall and the flu season that accompanies it, autumn like weather came to town. Then, the day of the Health Fair, summer roared back in. Still, nice weather helps with bringing out the crowds. We had nearly 200 people show up to our Health Fair. Some were there just for the flu shots, some for just the information handed out, but most took full advantage by getting shots AND visiting all the vendors to get lots of healthy information as possible.

Apart from the shots and information, one could get a Body Mass Index reading, Skin screening, Dental Hygiene, just to name a few. The free flu shots were provided by the San Bernardino Co. Dept. Of Public Health, and were administered by nurses from the Beaver Medical Group.

We would like to acknowledge that the success of our health fair would not have been possible without all the vendors who came out to provide information and services to all. Additional thanks go out to the Highland Police Departments Citizens Patrol for their excellent traffic control and parking assistance. Mostly we would like to thank our event sponsors, the Physicians of Beaver Medical Group and the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians.
