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.

For over 30 years of our membership fee holding steady at the unbelievable cost of only $10, we are finding the need to increase the cost of our membership to $20. The membership price has not increased since the Highland Senior Center began. Some might think that is a lot, but consider that it means our membership is still only $1.66 a month now. Find that type of membership ANYWHERE. And that still doesnt cover the cost of just to mail out the newsletter, let alone the cost of making the newsletter!

For those wishing to take advantage of the water aerobics program, membership cost will be $25 annually. Again, this means a only a $2.08 monthly membership. Those wishing to use the pool, they will receive a membership card with a special stamp on it to let the YMCA know that a member is eligible for the water aerobics program. If you have paid ahead, under the old price structure, you will need to pay the additional $15 to receive a membership card with the stamp on it.

We are sorry that we finally had to increase our membership after over 17 years, but we were not financially able to continue subsidizing the cost. We still believe that $1.66 a month for membership, and $2.08 for membership with water aerobics is a great deal, and hope you will too.
