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 Activity

Back in August we hosted a Chocolate Bingo in conjunction with Liz Chavez with Inter Valley Health Plan (IVHP). Chocolate Bingo is just like normal bingo only the stakes are a little bit sweeter. The names on the board were bingo but instead of numbers they were names after various chocolates. So one had to listen for I - Godiva, B - Milk Chocolate to fill out their cards. Also there were no dobbers here. Boards were covered with m&ms, but you had to be able to withstand the desire to eat them, or you couldnt cover your board.

If one was lucky enough to hold off eating the markers, and you managed to get a bingo, winners were paid out in chocolate. So at the end, even the losers got to finally eat their markers, so that every sweet tooth was satisfied.

Thanks to everyone who showed up to play, as well as Liz Chavez with IVHP for this fun and tasty event.
