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.

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!
