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.

The members here were treated to a special concert performed by the Inland Empire Prime Time Choraliers. They were invited by the Executive Director, Penny Lilburn, to sing a few patriotic songs in honor of Memorial Day. The group is directed by Jo Stewart and accompanied by Herb Iverson on piano.

The group fit right in here at the center as the Choraliers are a group of seniors whose average age is 75. They love to sing just about anything and everything. For us they did some well known songs, such as America the Beautiful, and Home on the Range, to more unknown, yet just as beautiful songs like Swing Deep & Low, and This is My Country.

The concert swelled to a great finale as they ended with a Service Medley, with rousing renditions of the Caisson Song (Army), Anchors Aweigh (Navy), Wild Blue Yonder (Air Force), and the Marine Hymn. (Sorry Coast Guard!).

If you would like to join the Choraliers, no auditions are necessary, but you must be a senior and be able to carry a tune. They practice at St. Pauls United Methodist Church on Tues from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m.
