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.

Featured Activity

We are currently forming an interest list for a Miniatures Club which will meet here at the center. Miniatures are simply scale models of larger objects. Most of us are familiar with scale model trains, cars, airplanes, dioramas, or even doll houses, but there are also models called a room box. Room boxes are just what they suggest. Models of rooms. However they can be interior view, exterior views, or a combination of both.

The group leader will be Noni Axe who is prepared to teach people how to create a minature, from start to finish. Basic tools you would need to bring would be an exacto knife, a fine tip tweezer, and some sharp nose scissors. Anything else would depend on what you intend to build. Some items can be made from household items, while others can be bought. It just depends how what you want to do with it and how simple or elaborate you wish to make it. If this sounds like something you would be interested in please contact us so we can put your name on a list. If we have enough interest you will be called back with a time and date and start putting your hands to work.
