This month we’d like to shine the light on some familiar faces around here. Mike & Sharon Pierce are a mix of new and old to the center. Sharon has been a member since 2010, while Mike joined in 2018. Before the shutdown, Mike was wearing several hats, working in the Trip Office and working in the Nutrition Program two days a week. They both also enjoy working at our special events, and were first time drivers for our Operation Senior Cause. During the shutdown they’ve both have been volunteering in the Thrift Store as well as serving as Transportation Assistance Program drivers. Mike and Sharon are both from the area. Sharon was born in Boston, but came out here when she was three. Mike on the other hand was born and raised out here. They met on a blind date when she was 18, and he was 22. They were married 6 weeks later! Together they have two kids and five grandchildren. He worked for Fedco and retired from Beaver Medical for over 20 years each whereas she worked for the same mortgage company. We would like to thank the Mike and Sharon for their ongoing dedication to the center and its members during these troubling days.

Koffee Klub


Join the Highland Senior Center for our FREE Koffee Klub. Come enjoy an informational meeting with a home cooked breakfast on the 2nd Thursday of each month. We feature great speakers and timely life topics. Please make sure you R.S.V.P. at (909)862-8104 !

December’s Koffee Klub was presented by our very own Executive Director, Penny Lilburn, who did a presentation on our very own Operation Senior Claus (O.S.C.). For those you who do not know, O.S.C. is a program run by the center where we deliver a home cooked holiday meal and a basket filled with food and goodies. The recipients are home bound seniors in the area.
We receive referrals from local senior housing apartments and mobile home parks as to who could use a hot meal delivered by a friendly face for the holidays. The center has been collecting non-perishable food for months prior as well as receiving donations for Stater Bros. gift cards which are then divided amongst over 150 seniors.
However, to deliver all these goodies we need drivers who come to the center and take no more than 3 baskets each. Each driver will only give up about one hour of their time, including pick up and deliver, ensuring that our seniors enjoy days of happiness. If you would like to donate your time or money please contact the center at (909)862-8104.
