This month we’d like to shower kudos on John Henry. John Henry is a volunteer in our Bingo Program. He has been working for our Bingo program for off and on 10 years. He originally came here after he retired from 33 years with the Post Office. He worked the Wednesday Night Community Bingo Program for a while before retiring from that. Then, one of our old bingo callers got sick and needed to stop volunteering. Penny asked John to come back and has been here ever since. For years he worked all three bingo programs, but we are down to only one day a week and you can be sure to find him there calling bingo. While bingo is what originally brought him to us, he has branched out also helping us in the Walmart Food Program, picking up, sorting, and handing out the food. Whenever we have special events, such as our Luau, Thanksgiving Dinner, or Operation Senior Claus, you can be sure he is on hand to give us a helping hand. He is also a longtime member of our Board of Directors, where he served as President. Originally from Meridian Mississippi, he came out west to go to school. He went top East L.A. College, L.A. City College, and finished at the University of Redlands. Besides being a Postal worker, he also did a short stint in the military. When not working here he likes to visit with his two kids, his three grandkids, and his two greatkids, go fishing, or root for Michigan. Thanks John for being there when we need you.
