This month we’d like to give thanks to Lee Lombard. Lee is one of our Transportation Assistance Program (TAP) drivers. In fact he is one of our top TAP drivers, consistently in the top three for miles driven and hours. He came to the center nearly five years ago, just looking to donate some books, when he happened to see a TAP flyer on the board. He asked the Front Desk person what TAP was, and she took him straight to the TAP coordinator. That was all it took, and he=s been driving ever since. He now drives every weekday, and even on weekends, sometimes taking 2 rides a day. He drives all over the Inland Empire which doesn’t leave him much time to explore the fun things our center has to offer, but he hopes to get involved soon. Originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, his father’s travels in the Air Force eventually brought him out to March AFB in Riverside, and he=s been here ever since. He did a stint in the Air Force, where he got trained in Military Pay, which helped him after he left, to get into Money Management, which he turned into a 30 year career as a banker and financial advisor. Now single, he has a daughter and two grandsons. Thanks Lee stepping up big time into this important program.

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.
