In celebration the approaching of Thanksgiving, this month we’d like to give thanks to Guadalupe “Lupe” Rozzi. Lupe, or Kitty as she is more commonly known, has been a member, along with her husband, John, for over 40 years! It was just being established and her friends were going to the center, so she knew about it. She has watched it blossom from a place with a few activities to the bustling center it is today. She loves to help us out. When she first started the Center was participating in a fundraiser called “Points for Profit.” She would help us gather and calculate points which were then converted into money for us. After that program went away she has been helping us by selling 50/50 tickets at our special events. However, all of her hard work isn’t contained to fundraising. She also helps out at smaller events and the special events by helping to set up, serve, or clean up. Originally from San Bernardino, she eventually met her husband John after he moved from Rhode Island. They both worked at Norton AFB. She was a supply clerk, and he worked with computers. Together they have two kids and six grandkids. Thanks Kitty for helping to keep us in the black.

Member Spotlite

This month we’d like give you a two for one spotlite. Jeffrey Graden and Stan Logan. Jeffrey has been a member for over seven years, while Stan has been a member for two years. Both are with the Gas Co. and both are members of the Highland Senior Center Board of Directors.
They became involved with the center through the Gas Co. as employee donors to the center, then as active participants with the mobile gas chuck wagon. They would come out to cook for us at our BBQs, Hoedown, and Pancake Breakfasts. From there they both would help serve Thanksgiving Dinners, and even try to deliver meals for our Operation Senior Claus when their work schedule allow.
So if you do happen to see them, make sure to say “Hi.” Unless they have a plate of food in their hands. Then get out of their way!
