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.

It was a great day and a packed house for our first Karaoke Party of the year on April 24. We had new faces and familiar faces in attendance. Harry Brant sang \"Today\" and it was beautiful, and Program Director, Annette Mendenhall told him he could sing to her every night. Barbara Faurot sang Cabaret while she performed like an American Idol getting the crowd involved

A special thank you to Bob Harvey for giving us the history on Karaoke and for manning

the show. Thank you to Danni Wilson and her husband Michael, for bringing the equipment, setting it up and running it, while Babs Anderson assisted where needed and Nona Martin and Elenor Boese for helping out with Ice Cream Sundaes.
