The Highland Senior Center’s held it’s biggest event and fundraiser of the year on April 21st at the San Bernardino Golf Club: The annual Golf Tournament and Senior Recognition Dinner. For days prior the sky were gloomy with bits of sprinkles here and there. However, when the day came it stayed dry, albeit a bit cloudy, which kept things nice and cool. Once again it was a sold out event.

Watch out! There’s a new sheriff in town. Well, maybe not in town, but definitely on the golf course! This years representatives from Patton Corrections: Arnold Urtiaga, Danny Gomez, Tom Adame, and Vince Gonzales wrested the Law Enforcement Trophy away from the perennial champs at the Sheriff’s Office, shooting a 54. 1st place senior division winners: Pete Guereca, Pete Pequeno, Jr. Carrillo, and Andy Garcia (SP) tied with another team at 57, winning in a a card-off. However, neither team could beat out the overall winners: Tom Battaile, Tim Lucia, John Thornes, and Danny Jimenez, who shot a 52! We also had, for the first time ever, a hole-in-one! Andy Garcia made the shot on a hole-in-one hole making him the lucky winner, not only of bragging rights, but of two round trip tickets to any destination.

The scores were a lot lower than in previous years, which means either they’ve been spending too much time on the golf course, or they put those mulligans to good use! One bit of interesting news is that we only had one Ladies team this year, (Toni Callicott, Yevette Ramos, and Betty Bean) which gave them the unique title of Ladies Champions while also earning the distinction of “Most Honest” for their high score!

This year the center honored one of it’s biggest supporters, Charles Roberts, whose achievements you read about in last month’s newsletter. Our many thanks to our major sponsors - San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, and Patricia Fischer. Also, thanks to all of our other various money and product sponsors, raffle donors, and our golf chairperson, Denise Lundy. Finally, we’d like to thank all of the other volunteers, golfers, and everyone else who helped support the center and honor Charles Roberts.
