This month we’d like to shine the light on Don Harper is one of our longtime Transportation Assistance Program (TAP) drivers. Don has been a member for about 7 ½ years, and has been driving for 5 ½ years. During that time he has become one of our go-to drivers driving multiple times a week, and sometimes several trips in one day. He first heard about the center from his mother-in-law, who is a Wii Bowler. She got him a membership and he came and joined the Wii Bowling league. He then remembered then Outreach Director, Holly Andrade, talking about TAP and how they needed drivers. He gave it a test drive, enjoyed it and has been doing it ever since. He loves driving, and loves the people. He thinks of this as his job, but a job he enjoys. The clients love him too and has clients who ask for him. Originally from Fort Worth, TX, his mom brought him out here when he was two. He inched his way over from Blythe, to Beaumont, to Highland. We are thankful that his travels brought him closer to us. Thanks Don for driving that extra mile for us!

Halloween Party
October 29, 2021 11:30 am
Make Halloween Fun Again! When we were growing up, Halloween was a fun time. Sometimes a bit mischievous, sometimes a bit scary, but always fun. Well, in these modern times, we’re trying to bring back the fun, scale back the horror, and really tone back the naughty nurses. You know what else is fun? Circuses. So with that in mind we are combining the two into a Halloween Circus! That’s right. No one finds clowns scary. I guess that depends on the clown. However, Coulrophobia is no laughing matter, so we are going to throw in some calliope music, popcorn, and of course funnel cake. The fun takes place on Freaky Friday, October 29th at 11:30am. Lunch will be provided for all those that RSVP by October 21st at (909)862-8104. Remember, No RSVP, no lunch. However you can still come for party and treats. And by the way, remember to dress up. Hopefully as a clown. Bozo or Pennywhistle, your choice.
