This month we honor one of our “3 Days a Week” Volunteers. Doug Corwin tends to the garden area (and the rabbits) in our traffic circle and also helps with the food distribution program. Doug is 72 years old and is an Air Force brat who was born in Eglin Air Force Base, Florida. He bucked the Air Force trend and served in the US Navy for 6 years before moving to Abilene, Texas. While working in the sheet metal business, he met his wife, Susan, who now works at nearby Patton. After moving to California he persisted in the sheet metal business, bought an existing business, and continued with that before retiring and gifting the HSC with his talents. THANKS Doug for your dedication to the HSC.

For over 30 years of our membership fee holding steady at the unbelievable cost of only $10, we are finding the need to increase the cost of our membership to $20. The membership price has not increased since the Highland Senior Center began. Some might think that is a lot, but consider that it means our membership is still only $1.66 a month now. Find that type of membership ANYWHERE. And that still doesnt cover the cost of just to mail out the newsletter, let alone the cost of making the newsletter!

For those wishing to take advantage of the water aerobics program, membership cost will be $25 annually. Again, this means a only a $2.08 monthly membership. Those wishing to use the pool, they will receive a membership card with a special stamp on it to let the YMCA know that a member is eligible for the water aerobics program. If you have paid ahead, under the old price structure, you will need to pay the additional $15 to receive a membership card with the stamp on it.

We are sorry that we finally had to increase our membership after over 17 years, but we were not financially able to continue subsidizing the cost. We still believe that $1.66 a month for membership, and $2.08 for membership with water aerobics is a great deal, and hope you will too.
