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.

This month in celebration of May being Older Americans Month, the Highland Senior Center will host its annual Fitness After Fifty celebration from May 1st to May 20nd. Join us for a free week of aerobics (May 2nd - 6th), hot lunch (May 16th - 20th), and free swimming and water aerobics all month, weekdays from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Everyone who attends any activity from May 1st through May 20th will get a ticket for each and every activity they participate in. Then on the 20th we will celebrate a free b.b.q.

During the free B.B.Q. lunch, there will be a series of raffle drawing for all of those who earned tickets during the activities. So the more activities you attend, not only the better youll feel, but also the better your chances are to win great gifts. Please sign up for events and R.S.V.P. for the BBQ no later than the morning of May 20th. But remember: Working on getting or staying healthy through diet and exercise is something that isnt made to last a week or a month. It should last a lifetime. Also dont forget to celebrate the 18th annual Senior Health & Fitness Day on Wednesday, May 25th. This years theme is \"Make Fitness a Goal for Life!\" Thats a good theme for people of all ages.
