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.

Have you always wanted to learn to play a musical instrument? Are you a blowhard? Well you are exactly what we are looking for! We are forming a kazoo band to march in the Highland 4th of July parade. No auditions to be held. If you can hum, you can play the kazoo. Best of all, we will provide the kazoo for you! The band will get together on June 14th and 28th at 9am for practice.

But what if youre asthmatic? Maybe wind instruments arent your thing? Can you play saucepan, dutch oven, or possibly even double boiler? If so, bring your favorite percussion instrument and a wooden spoon, and get ready to bang out some Sousa.

If youre still unsure have no fear. Our band director, Penny, will be using Professor Harold Hills Think System. All we need now is 76 kazoos to lead the big parade
