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.

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.
