This month we’d like to give thanks to a familiar face, but one you might not know of in relation to the Highland Senior Center. Charles Roberts is the former editor of the Highland Community News, where he was a big supporter of the Highland Senior Center and would often visit the center to cover our events and activities. However when he retired at the end of 2017, he continued to support our center, but in a different capacity. Before retiring, he asked Jeff, the Outreach Director if we could use some volunteers, as he did not want to become bored. Well, he asked the right person, as he was immediately made a Transportation Assistance Program (TAP) driver. He volunteers to drive just about every weekday, and sometimes on weekends as well. Yet his helping us out doesn’t stop there. He also helps out in our Food Program, three days a weeks. He sorts outs the food we bring in and then helps us to pass it out to our seniors. We would also like to thank his wife, Myrna, who gives him time off from his retirement Honey Do list to help us out.

A new program has been created through Amazon, the online e-commerce business. AmazonSmile is a program where Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organizations selected by it's customers.

We were recently informed by Amazon that several of their customers had selected to support the Highland District Council On Aging (i.e. the Highland Senior Center). To support the center, instead of going to www.amazon.com, shop at AmazonSmile (http://smile.amazon.com) where you can buy the exact same things you would at their normal site, and the same prices. We did check it out and it's legit. So continue to shop at Amazon and help out your Senior Center at the same time.
