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.

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.
