This month we’d like to shine the light on someone who really stepped it up during the COVID-19 shutdown. Mae Luerco had been volunteering her time in the food program before the shutdown, coming in and accepting donations, taking down names, and checking membership. She would also come in early and before the rush of the crowd, to help with setting up, cleaning tables, vacuuming, and emptying the trash. Once the shutdown happened as our lunch program evolved while still keeping the food program, Mae went into overdrive. While others stayed home, Mae came in 5 days a week to help package and pass out the lunches, making sure all the health regulations were maintained. She would then stay after to help out with the Walmart Food Program, unloading the food, separating and sorting, then handing that out as well. Again, once she was done, she would help clean up and take down the area. During all this, her perpetual smile and sweet attitude never wavered. Thanks Mae for making sure our seniors got something to eat.

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!
