This month we’d like to give thanks to a familiar face, but one you might not know of in relation to the Highland Senior Center. Charles Roberts is the former editor of the Highland Community News, where he was a big supporter of the Highland Senior Center and would often visit the center to cover our events and activities. However when he retired at the end of 2017, he continued to support our center, but in a different capacity. Before retiring, he asked Jeff, the Outreach Director if we could use some volunteers, as he did not want to become bored. Well, he asked the right person, as he was immediately made a Transportation Assistance Program (TAP) driver. He volunteers to drive just about every weekday, and sometimes on weekends as well. Yet his helping us out doesn’t stop there. He also helps out in our Food Program, three days a weeks. He sorts outs the food we bring in and then helps us to pass it out to our seniors. We would also like to thank his wife, Myrna, who gives him time off from his retirement Honey Do list to help us out.

It was a great day and a packed house for our first Karaoke Party of the year on April 24. We had new faces and familiar faces in attendance. Harry Brant sang \"Today\" and it was beautiful, and Program Director, Annette Mendenhall told him he could sing to her every night. Barbara Faurot sang Cabaret while she performed like an American Idol getting the crowd involved

A special thank you to Bob Harvey for giving us the history on Karaoke and for manning

the show. Thank you to Danni Wilson and her husband Michael, for bringing the equipment, setting it up and running it, while Babs Anderson assisted where needed and Nona Martin and Elenor Boese for helping out with Ice Cream Sundaes.
