This month we’d like to shine the light on one of our newer volunteers around here. Leona Fowler, one of our Thrift Store volunteers. Once a week Leona comes in to sort, clean, price, and then sell items in our store. Leona has been only been volunteering for the past 6 months, but has proven herself to be a hardworking salesperson. In fact when we had our Extravaganza Sale the end totals came to $180! Not bad for 50 cent to $2 items! Leona came to us after retiring from the Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, where she worked for over 32 years. After slowing down she went to visit her sister and overheard someone talking about the Highland Senior Center. She came and checked us out and liked what she saw. Then while attending the Food Program, she heard an announcement asking for volunteers. She turned in her paperwork, and the very next day she was volunteering in the Thrift Store! Born and raised here in Highland, her and her husband Mike and three sons together. No grandkids yet, but Leona has her fingers crossed! We would like to thank Leona all her hard work.

  • CHIEF OF POLICE NEWSLETTER Highland Police Department - Captain Sam Fisk Don’t Be A Victim IRS Scam Alert Be aware of the bad guys– Con –Artists prey on victims using these common techniques: • Con-Artists pretend to be IRS agents and threaten to arrest you if you don’t provide immediate over – the-phone payment. IRS agents will never contact you by telephone or email. Never provide ANYONE with personal Information over the phone. • Email scams trick victims into thinking they are receiving official emails from the IRS. They include links to fraudulent web sites. These sites ask for Social Security numbers and personal information, which is then used to file false tax return. • Criminal steal mail from secured and unsecured mail boxes. We urge you to drop off important documents directly to the US postal Office. Message from Captain Fisk Hello Highland and 2018 ! I hope your new year’s resolutions included giving back to your community. Volunteerism is what makes Highland a great city to call home. As we welcome in 2018, we have to be mindful of potential fraud or scams you may experience. Follow some of these helpful tips and keep you and your family from being a victim. Sam Fisk
