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.

Featured Activity

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.
