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.

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.
