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.

For those naysayers who thought our ongoing renovation was surely as a standstill, wed like to point out that slowly but surely, we are still fixing up the place. It might not pop at you as much as a new coat of paint or carpet, was we are sprucing up the place regardless.

We recently purchased some much needed equipment to be used for our various activities. We have now added a mobile TV stand with a lockable cabinet, to keep our equipment from growing feet and walking off. We now also have a ceiling pulldown screen in the game room / computer lab, as well as a huge tripod widescreen screen we can take from room to room, as well to outside events.

This is not the end of the work either. It is still a work in progress and yes, we are still planning on the addition on the sun room which will give us lots more room for more activities. So keep your eyes open and youll be amazed and the ongoing changes we have in store for you.
