This month we don’t just have one Volunteer to show kudos upon, we have two! Ed & Vivian Foster are our newest Thrift Store volunteers. They actually came to us thanks to Vivian who was a member. Once they retired following twenty-five years of retail experience, Vivian told Ed that they should help us out at the Thrift Store. That was all it took. They first started out by bringing in store shelves and then by arranging the stock. Now they work 1-2 days a week moving the items from our center to your house. Ed was originally from Fort Huron, Michigan, and came west to Long Beach thanks to the navy. It was fate that the two met at the Central City Mall (the Carousel mall to you youngsters) where they both worked, each taking turns as the other’s supervisor at various stores. They worked so well together they ended up with six kids, fifteen grandkids, and eight great-grandkids! Thanks to Ed & Vivian for arranging our store and for arranging your time 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.
