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.

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.
