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 we held our second Bunco Blowout. Once again it was a sold out event Now we have Bunco every Friday, but this was a special event. Normally the group plays with 7 tables, but, for over $400 in prizes, the number of tables increased to 10 full tables, with 40 players. We even had a waiting list for hopefuls.

Even with a normal crowd the group is loud. However with the extra people we were surprised we didnt get any noise complaints from the neighbors! For our game prizes were handed out for the most buncos (Vi Webb), most games won (Jean Murtaugh), 2nd - 4rd place, and the least amount of games won (Linda Winn). Thanks to everyone who came out, win or lose, to have a blast playing bunco.
