This month we’d like to shine the light on someone few of you may have seen, but may have benefited from her volunteering. Lesia (pronounced Lisa) Alexander has been helping us out since 2020. During that time she has helped serve meals for Thanksgiving, Operation Senior Claus, and most recently, the Grab-n-Go dinners Monday thru Friday she can be helping out her sister, Mae Lucero, getting the dinners from the local restaurants, then helping to distribute them to seniors at the center. However, Leisa doesn’t just come here help to serve food. All that work can wear a person out, so when she’s not volunteering, she enjoys coming to the center’s Aerobics Program to boost her cardio. Originally from Meridian, MS, she and her two siblings came out Calif., to live with, and be raised by their big sister Mae, when their mom passed away. After she grew up she went to work for the Dept. of Corrections where she worked for 27 years before retiring. During that time she raised a son, who in turn, gave her a grandchild. Thanks Leisa for helping to ensure that our senior don’t go hungry.

Last month we bid a fond farewell to Dave Mitchell, our longtime bookkeeper. Having started with us in February 2001, he and his wife Bonnie decided to retire together. So after 15 years of making sure all our numbers added up, and that we dotted our is and crossed our ts he has decided to take a well earned rest.



However, he wont be gone for good as he is planning on becoming a member and looks forward to coming in and having fun, possibly taking some trips and getting into Wii Bowling. Dave, were sorry to see you go, but look forward to welcoming you back!
