This month we’d like to shine the light on Don Harper is one of our longtime Transportation Assistance Program (TAP) drivers. Don has been a member for about 7 ½ years, and has been driving for 5 ½ years. During that time he has become one of our go-to drivers driving multiple times a week, and sometimes several trips in one day. He first heard about the center from his mother-in-law, who is a Wii Bowler. She got him a membership and he came and joined the Wii Bowling league. He then remembered then Outreach Director, Holly Andrade, talking about TAP and how they needed drivers. He gave it a test drive, enjoyed it and has been doing it ever since. He loves driving, and loves the people. He thinks of this as his job, but a job he enjoys. The clients love him too and has clients who ask for him. Originally from Fort Worth, TX, his mom brought him out here when he was two. He inched his way over from Blythe, to Beaumont, to Highland. We are thankful that his travels brought him closer to us. Thanks Don for driving that extra mile for us!

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.
