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.

With the last gasp of summer producing temps in the low 90\'s, it was hard to think of the Flu Season. Yet in the words of Benjamin Franklin, An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. We had nearly 200 people show up for the cure. Some others even got the cure from other places, but came for all the other information and goodies our other vendors brought with them.

With shots being offered back in September just about anywhere, our crowds arent what they used to be, but for those who did not like waiting in line for 45 minutes, it was a smooth flowing line. People got to ask questions at the various booths, get lots of freebies, all at a leisurely pace.

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.
