This month we don’t just have one Volunteer to show kudos upon, we have two! Ed & Vivian Foster are our newest Thrift Store volunteers. They actually came to us thanks to Vivian who was a member. Once they retired following twenty-five years of retail experience, Vivian told Ed that they should help us out at the Thrift Store. That was all it took. They first started out by bringing in store shelves and then by arranging the stock. Now they work 1-2 days a week moving the items from our center to your house. Ed was originally from Fort Huron, Michigan, and came west to Long Beach thanks to the navy. It was fate that the two met at the Central City Mall (the Carousel mall to you youngsters) where they both worked, each taking turns as the other’s supervisor at various stores. They worked so well together they ended up with six kids, fifteen grandkids, and eight great-grandkids! Thanks to Ed & Vivian for arranging our store and for arranging your time to help us out.

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.
