This month we’d like to shine the light on some familiar faces around here. Mike & Sharon Pierce are a mix of new and old to the center. Sharon has been a member since 2010, while Mike joined in 2018. Before the shutdown, Mike was wearing several hats, working in the Trip Office and working in the Nutrition Program two days a week. They both also enjoy working at our special events, and were first time drivers for our Operation Senior Cause. During the shutdown they’ve both have been volunteering in the Thrift Store as well as serving as Transportation Assistance Program drivers. Mike and Sharon are both from the area. Sharon was born in Boston, but came out here when she was three. Mike on the other hand was born and raised out here. They met on a blind date when she was 18, and he was 22. They were married 6 weeks later! Together they have two kids and five grandchildren. He worked for Fedco and retired from Beaver Medical for over 20 years each whereas she worked for the same mortgage company. We would like to thank the Mike and Sharon for their ongoing dedication to the center and its members during these troubling days.


Featured Class


Featured Activity

In January the Highland Area Chamber of Commerce held its monthly luncheon. What made it special was that, on the heels of the center being honored was the Chambers 2010 Business of the Year, the center gave a presentation. Penny Lilburn wanted to show the members exactly why we were worthy of such an award.

One of our aerobics instructors, Julia Regan, started things off with a short, heart pumping, aerobics warm up. Once everyone was done burning off the calories from their lunch, Penny showed a short power point presentation, in which she talked about the center and all the activities and resources we provide. Next came a short video, which highlighted a year in the life of the Highland Senior Center, showcasing all of our events and activities. In the end, the audience all agreed that the Chamber made the right choice!
