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.

Well you just dont know who to trust here at the Highland Senior Center. At least not when it comes to the Liars Club. Last month we had some of the biggest bald-faced liars descend on our center. However, that was a good thing. Once again we hosted our very popular Liars Club. Back to join us were our very own prevaricators: Ed Ford, Chris Libra, Bob Harvey, Danni Wilson, Kevon Kenyon.

This game show is one of the centers favorites and always brings out an enthusiastic crowd. Our yarn spinners do such as great job that the audience is routinely split on whos telling the truth and whos full of it (baloney that is). A lot of times the correct answer is exactly that last choice you would have made.

Our liars answers ranged from outrageous to ribald to incredulous. Yet, invariably, it was an answer, the most of us wouldn\'t have guessed in a million years, and many of our audience members were misled. Those who didn\'t guess right, didn\'t feel so bad, as they still got some ice cream thanks to the sponsors of the event, Humana.

Thanks to everyone who came out to enjoy the game and we hope to see you at the next meeting of the Liars Club.
