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.

As we prepared for fall and the flu season that accompanies it, autumn like weather came to town. Then, the day of the Health Fair, summer roared back in. Still, nice weather helps with bringing out the crowds. We had nearly 200 people show up to our Health Fair. Some were there just for the flu shots, some for just the information handed out, but most took full advantage by getting shots AND visiting all the vendors to get lots of healthy information as possible.

Apart from the shots and information, one could get a Body Mass Index reading, Skin screening, Dental Hygiene, just to name a few. The free flu shots were provided by the San Bernardino Co. Dept. Of Public Health, and were administered by nurses from the Beaver Medical Group.

We would like to acknowledge that the success of our health fair would not have been possible without all the vendors who came out to provide information and services to all. Additional thanks go out to the Highland Police Departments Citizens Patrol for their excellent traffic control and parking assistance. Mostly we would like to thank our event sponsors, the Physicians of Beaver Medical Group and the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians.
