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.

Old Hazel Eyes may not have the same ring to it, but it was his golden throat that caught your attention. San Bernardino County Supervisor Neil Derry came to help us out as we hosted a dinner show with Supervisor Derry wowing the crowds as he sang the standards. He loves to sing, and he loves to help others, both young and old, as indicated by him doing benefits or us, as well as a youth center up in Big Bear.

Before the show Neil Derry worked his way through the room, chatting with individuals in the crowd, then making his way to the stage to croon. Then after the show it was back to mingling as he answered questions and posed for pictures with the fans.

Thanks to Janetha Hamre, Linda Brian, Rae Sanchez, and Dianne Kassotis for their hard work in the kitchen and serving. Big thanks go out to Primecare for sponsoring this great night out!
