This month we’d like to shine the light on Don Harper is one of our longtime Transportation Assistance Program (TAP) drivers. Don has been a member for about 7 ½ years, and has been driving for 5 ½ years. During that time he has become one of our go-to drivers driving multiple times a week, and sometimes several trips in one day. He first heard about the center from his mother-in-law, who is a Wii Bowler. She got him a membership and he came and joined the Wii Bowling league. He then remembered then Outreach Director, Holly Andrade, talking about TAP and how they needed drivers. He gave it a test drive, enjoyed it and has been doing it ever since. He loves driving, and loves the people. He thinks of this as his job, but a job he enjoys. The clients love him too and has clients who ask for him. Originally from Fort Worth, TX, his mom brought him out here when he was two. He inched his way over from Blythe, to Beaumont, to Highland. We are thankful that his travels brought him closer to us. Thanks Don for driving that extra mile for us!

Chefs...ready, set, bake! On Thursday, May 23rd at 1:30pm we will be hosting the Big Banana Bake Off. Everyone is invited to bring in their best dish, whether it be an entree, side dish, desert, or drink. However, it must have banana as one of its main ingredients.

Contestants will prepare their items at home and bring in the items by 1:15 p.m. to be admired by all and judged by a special panel of three guests. If youd like to show off your culinary skills, please R.S.V.P. at the front desk. You dont have to say what you are bringing, giving hints to the competition. So gather those starchy containers of goodness and get ready to cook.
