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.

If you used to Sing Along with Mitch then you did karaoke, before karaoke was cool! Well since we at the Highland Senior Center are always cool, we decided to host a Karaoke Party. It is basically a singing to the music of your favorite songs. If you dont know the words, no worries. There is a screen, where the words appear, and are highlighted as they are to be sung.

We tried it out last month with a few brave souls. Our very own Penny, Martha, and Timi sang out loud, to which others decided if they can do it, so can I, and belted out tunes of their own. Light refreshments were served and were paid back in lots of laughs and good times.

Thanks to Skip for running the event, and to Anthem Blue Cross for sponsoring the fun.

The next Karaoke Party will take place on Tuesday, March 15, and the 3rd Tuesday of every month thereafter. We look forward to having you join us.
