As we open our doors and welcome back most of our volunteers to the center, we’d like to give special kudos to another volunteer who has been here during the shutdown. Rudy, has been coming in to help out with the Walmart Food Program, helping to set up, organizes, and distribute the food. However, before he does that he come in and helps us to spruce up the outside. He cleans up the outside, sweeping, blowing, and watering the garden. He also and makes sure the birds are fed. He has our unofficial groundskeeper this since before the shutdown. Originally from Puebla, Mexico, he came up to the United States for a job back in 2002, where he worked for UPS, Sketchers, and Star Refrigeration, before retiring last year. He still has two homes in Mexico and goes back every year for vacation, where he also volunteers his time as a groundskeeper at local plaza and parks. Rudy is married to Mary (aka: Cuca), and has two sons and two granddaughters. Thanks Rudy for making sure our members come to a clean environment.

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.
