This month we’d like to give thanks to Lee Lombard. Lee is one of our Transportation Assistance Program (TAP) drivers. In fact he is one of our top TAP drivers, consistently in the top three for miles driven and hours. He came to the center nearly five years ago, just looking to donate some books, when he happened to see a TAP flyer on the board. He asked the Front Desk person what TAP was, and she took him straight to the TAP coordinator. That was all it took, and he=s been driving ever since. He now drives every weekday, and even on weekends, sometimes taking 2 rides a day. He drives all over the Inland Empire which doesn’t leave him much time to explore the fun things our center has to offer, but he hopes to get involved soon. Originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, his father’s travels in the Air Force eventually brought him out to March AFB in Riverside, and he=s been here ever since. He did a stint in the Air Force, where he got trained in Military Pay, which helped him after he left, to get into Money Management, which he turned into a 30 year career as a banker and financial advisor. Now single, he has a daughter and two grandsons. Thanks Lee stepping up big time into this important program.


Featured Class


Featured Activity

Last month, one of our Aerobics Instructors, Julia Ragan, decided to try something new in her Wednesday class. Something she likes to call Bollyrobics. Its a mixture of aerobics and Bollywood (or Indian Movie style) dancing, along with Indian music. She only meant to try it one time, but they class enjoyed it so much, they asked her to continue. And so it has. The Wednesday class does their normal aerobics routine, then around 9:30 or so, they break out their scarves, and really start to move. It looks simple, but the participants definitely get a workout. If youd like to try it out, just come to the Wednesday aerobics class at 9am, dressed to exercise, dont forget the scarf, and get ready to bust a move...Bollywood style!
