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.

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.
