This month we’d like to shine the light on some familiar faces around here. Mike & Sharon Pierce are a mix of new and old to the center. Sharon has been a member since 2010, while Mike joined in 2018. Before the shutdown, Mike was wearing several hats, working in the Trip Office and working in the Nutrition Program two days a week. They both also enjoy working at our special events, and were first time drivers for our Operation Senior Cause. During the shutdown they’ve both have been volunteering in the Thrift Store as well as serving as Transportation Assistance Program drivers. Mike and Sharon are both from the area. Sharon was born in Boston, but came out here when she was three. Mike on the other hand was born and raised out here. They met on a blind date when she was 18, and he was 22. They were married 6 weeks later! Together they have two kids and five grandchildren. He worked for Fedco and retired from Beaver Medical for over 20 years each whereas she worked for the same mortgage company. We would like to thank the Mike and Sharon for their ongoing dedication to the center and its members during these troubling days.

Featured Activity

Old Hazel Eyes may not have the same ring to it, but it was his golden throat that caught your attention. San Bernardino County Supervisor Neil Derry came to help us out as we hosted a dinner show with Supervisor Derry wowing the crowds as he sang the standards. He loves to sing, and he loves to help others, both young and old, as indicated by him doing benefits or us, as well as a youth center up in Big Bear.

Before the show Neil Derry worked his way through the room, chatting with individuals in the crowd, then making his way to the stage to croon. Then after the show it was back to mingling as he answered questions and posed for pictures with the fans.

Thanks to Janetha Hamre, Linda Brian, Rae Sanchez, and Dianne Kassotis for their hard work in the kitchen and serving. Big thanks go out to Primecare for sponsoring this great night out!
