This month we honor one of our “3 Days a Week” Volunteers. Doug Corwin tends to the garden area (and the rabbits) in our traffic circle and also helps with the food distribution program. Doug is 72 years old and is an Air Force brat who was born in Eglin Air Force Base, Florida. He bucked the Air Force trend and served in the US Navy for 6 years before moving to Abilene, Texas. While working in the sheet metal business, he met his wife, Susan, who now works at nearby Patton. After moving to California he persisted in the sheet metal business, bought an existing business, and continued with that before retiring and gifting the HSC with his talents. THANKS Doug for your dedication to the HSC.

Featured Activity

Christmas is over, but we still are getting presents. Last month the Highland Senior Center received a Ford F150 truck from the East Valley Water District. The district had seven surplus vehicles that they decided to donate vehicles to eligible non-profit organizations exempt from federal income tax under section 501 of the Internal Revenue Code. We just happen to be a 501(c)(3) organization, so we applied for one.

The applications were reviewed on a first come, first serve basis with priority given to organizations on the basis of how likely the donation of surplus property would benefit the community. We certainly benefit the community, so we fit the bill. John Mura, the General Manager himself dropped off the truck to a very happy Penny Lilburn. We would like to give the EVWD more thanks than we can say for this great gift.
