This month we’d like to give thanks to a familiar face, but one you might not know of in relation to the Highland Senior Center. Charles Roberts is the former editor of the Highland Community News, where he was a big supporter of the Highland Senior Center and would often visit the center to cover our events and activities. However when he retired at the end of 2017, he continued to support our center, but in a different capacity. Before retiring, he asked Jeff, the Outreach Director if we could use some volunteers, as he did not want to become bored. Well, he asked the right person, as he was immediately made a Transportation Assistance Program (TAP) driver. He volunteers to drive just about every weekday, and sometimes on weekends as well. Yet his helping us out doesn’t stop there. He also helps out in our Food Program, three days a weeks. He sorts outs the food we bring in and then helps us to pass it out to our seniors. We would also like to thank his wife, Myrna, who gives him time off from his retirement Honey Do list to help us out.

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.
