In celebration the approaching of Thanksgiving, this month we’d like to give thanks to Guadalupe “Lupe” Rozzi. Lupe, or Kitty as she is more commonly known, has been a member, along with her husband, John, for over 40 years! It was just being established and her friends were going to the center, so she knew about it. She has watched it blossom from a place with a few activities to the bustling center it is today. She loves to help us out. When she first started the Center was participating in a fundraiser called “Points for Profit.” She would help us gather and calculate points which were then converted into money for us. After that program went away she has been helping us by selling 50/50 tickets at our special events. However, all of her hard work isn’t contained to fundraising. She also helps out at smaller events and the special events by helping to set up, serve, or clean up. Originally from San Bernardino, she eventually met her husband John after he moved from Rhode Island. They both worked at Norton AFB. She was a supply clerk, and he worked with computers. Together they have two kids and six grandkids. Thanks Kitty for helping to keep us in the black.

2010\'s Operation Senior Claus was an overwhelming success thanks to the overwhelming number of people who donated items, or volunteered to help out nearly 70 seniors or senior couples. Much more than last year. That is great! Unfortunately, that means more people are in need than ever.

Luckily we had over 100 elves from the center, local businesses, service organizations, and the community to not only help cook up the meals, but to then go out in their sleds to spread a bit of Christmas cheer. However, what would our volunteers deliver if it werent for the generosity of so many donors, such as Stater Bros. In these times when people are giving less and tightening belts it was nice to see the large amount of people who donated food, gift certificates, and other items for those less fortunate. Even the City of Highland staff got involved getting various gift cards and items to fill stockings with.

So once again, thanks to all those who helped out. God bless you. Everyone.
