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.

With temps hitting over the century mark, we long for cooler weather. To help us keep our thoughts cool, we are in the planning stages of our annual Operation Senior Claus. Every year we help the man with the bag by providing for seniors for Christmas Day who are alone, or in need of some kindness.

Last year the center provided over 125 seniors with a piping hot, home-cooked dinner, a basket full of food, as well as non-perishable items. Each senior also got a gift card for Stater Bros. For us to be successful again this year, we need your help in several ways.

We will be looking for: volunteers to deliver the dinners to needy seniors in the area, non-perishable food items, cash donations to buy food, gift cards to Stater Bros. In $10 increments, or items that can be put into their baskets. The amounts dont have to be large to make a big impact on a family. Please think about giving only a few hours of your time, or donating items to make someones day. For more details, call the center at 862-8104.
