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

With the Dog Days of August causing all our dogs to bark, we definitely needed a place to cool down. So the center came to the rescue as a part of us being an official Cooling Center. We held another one of our Ice Cream Parties.

Sponsor Laurel Brown with Home Instead Senior Care helped out by bringing Cookies and Cream ice cream for everyone. However, they had to work for it. The crowd played a bit of 50\'s & 60\'s Trivia for their scoops. Some of the answer the crowd got without much thought. Some of the others caused a bit of head scratching, while some questions left people with that deer in the headlight look.

No matter how they did they all had fun. After all, who cant have fun coming in from the 100 degree plus days into a cool building for ice cream and games? Thanks to everyone who came in to party with us. Special thanks to Home Instead Senior Care for sponsoring the event.
