This month we’d like to shine the light on some familiar faces around here. Mike & Sharon Pierce are a mix of new and old to the center. Sharon has been a member since 2010, while Mike joined in 2018. Before the shutdown, Mike was wearing several hats, working in the Trip Office and working in the Nutrition Program two days a week. They both also enjoy working at our special events, and were first time drivers for our Operation Senior Cause. During the shutdown they’ve both have been volunteering in the Thrift Store as well as serving as Transportation Assistance Program drivers. Mike and Sharon are both from the area. Sharon was born in Boston, but came out here when she was three. Mike on the other hand was born and raised out here. They met on a blind date when she was 18, and he was 22. They were married 6 weeks later! Together they have two kids and five grandchildren. He worked for Fedco and retired from Beaver Medical for over 20 years each whereas she worked for the same mortgage company. We would like to thank the Mike and Sharon for their ongoing dedication to the center and its members during these troubling days.

As with most birthdays, its a time to get together with family and friends, eat, and celebrate. Americas birthday is no different, so to celebrate its 235th, we invited over 150 of our friends for a party! We got the party started a little early, having it on a Friday, so we would continue partying with other friends over the weekend, before the big party on the 4th.

It was a fairly warm day for bbqing, but fortunately for us we chef Marty Steinbrecher on hand to flip burgers in the heat while guests got to sit in the air-conditioned dining room with a cool drink.

Wed like to thank everyone who showed up for this special birthday lunch, especially those who R.S.V.P.d giving us a chance to order enough food, as well as those who helped us to serve. Wed also like to show our appreciation to Kaiser Permanente for sponsoring the 4th (1st) of July bbq.
