Featured Activity

Last month five of Lowe’s Heroes from the Highland store, descended upon the Highland Senior Center as part of Lowe’s ongoing Heroes Project program. The center wasn’t sure if those heroes knew what they had in store for them. Cleaning and renovating the center’s pantry, which had not been straightened up in years.

This herculean task was as daunting as Hercules’ task of cleaning the Augean Stables, which held thousands of cows and had not been cleaned in 30 years. Our heroes didn’t need to bend any rivers to clean it out. Just some old fashioned sweat and elbow grease.

First they had to take everything out, then strip and clean the walls, and paint. They had to wait for the paint to dry, or they would’ve had it finished in a day, like Hercules. They next day they were back reorganizing, and installing wall shelves, and standing pantry shelves. By the time they were done, the place was unrecognizable. When everything was put back, the pantry still had more room than ever.

The Highland Senior Center would like to thank these true heroes for volunteering their time, hard work, and experience, to make the center a better place. They would also like to thank Lowe’s for selecting them to benefit from this great project.
