This month we’d like to shine the light on someone who really stepped it up during the COVID-19 shutdown. Mae Luerco had been volunteering her time in the food program before the shutdown, coming in and accepting donations, taking down names, and checking membership. She would also come in early and before the rush of the crowd, to help with setting up, cleaning tables, vacuuming, and emptying the trash. Once the shutdown happened as our lunch program evolved while still keeping the food program, Mae went into overdrive. While others stayed home, Mae came in 5 days a week to help package and pass out the lunches, making sure all the health regulations were maintained. She would then stay after to help out with the Walmart Food Program, unloading the food, separating and sorting, then handing that out as well. Again, once she was done, she would help clean up and take down the area. During all this, her perpetual smile and sweet attitude never wavered. Thanks Mae for making sure our seniors got something to eat.

In just a few weeks we will be hosting our annual Highland Senior Center Golf Tournament and Outstanding Senior Recognition Award. Each year we honor a senior (or senior couple) who lives/works in the community and has exhibited a long commitment in service. This years honoree will be Charles Roberts.

Charles is currently the editor of the Highland Community News. During his tenure he has made it is job to not only inform the community about what was going on, but to also be one of its biggest promoters. Even if he doesnt belong to a service group he makes sure that we know about them, and what they are doing. This varies from meetings of the city agencies and boards, the San Bernardino County Courthouse and Federal Court in Riverside, to such clubs as: the Rotary Club of San Bernardino/Highland, the Highland Kiwanis clubs, the Highland Area Chamber of Commerce, the Highland Citizens on Patrol, the Woman\'s Club and is the Red Hat Hubby of the Radiant Rubies Red Hat Society. He let\'s us know about everything that goes on in the community. It doesnt matter what a group does. If it matters to us, it matters to him.

There are a still some open slots if you\'d like to join us for a day of golf, or if golf is not your thing, but you\'d still like to help us honor Charles for all he\'s done, you can join us for dinner. The big day takes place April 21st at the San Bernardino Public Golf Course and is open to the public. Congratulations to Charles and thank you for all that you do for your community.
