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.

Last month we hosted a magical evening of illusions and showmanship, as we hosted our very first ever Magic Show Dinner. The event was orchestrated by our Magic teacher, Steve Micklas. A magician in his own right, he worked behind the scenes that night putting together some spectacular acts.

All of the performers are members of the International Brotherhood of Magicians, which includes such notables as Lance Burton and David Copperfield. However, that night it was local magicians who stole the show amazing the crowd with tricks, small, yet impressive. There was even a 12 year old performer, who, from the looks of his act, is ready for the big stage.

The Highland Senior Center would like to thank these talented prestidigitators for helping us out, as well as Steve for all his hard work. Additional thanks go out to our sponsors for the night, AGA, Inc., and the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians.
