This month we’d like to shine the light on Linda Sowell. Linda is a fairly new member, having joined us just two years ago after reading about us in a Highland Community News article. She loved that we had so many activities to offer that she joined right up. Now that she has a feel for the place she has started volunteering. When she first applied, she said that she was willing to work anywhere we needed her. Well, we needed her in the Thrift Store, so now you can find her there one day a week. She also is a sub for our Trip Office. Finally she was approached about becoming a member of the Board of Directors, helping us to run the place, which she gladly accepted. However, all work and no play makes Linda a dull girl, so she makes sure to have relaxing fun times here as well. She plays Bunco, Wii Bowling, comes to Taco Tuesday, takes trips, and comes to all of our special events. Originally from Chicago, Il., she came out to Southern California with her then husband. While here she worked for the Big Bear School District as the Director of Nutrition, and was a Tax Preparer for Liberty Tax Service. During that time she also managed to bring up two kids, who provided her with five grandkids. Thanks Linda for “retiring” and coming to work for us!
