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.

The Highland Senior Centers held its biggest event and fundraiser of the year on April 19th at the San Bernardino Golf Club: The annual Golf Tournament and Senior Recognition Dinner. God must have approved of the selection of Pastor Zinn as we had perfect weather for golf.

The day began with golfers hitting the greens. The shotgun start seemed appropriate as some of the golf balls were hit in the same pattern. Some to the left, some to the right, and some right one. This years Law Enforcement winners made it a repeat of sorts, as one of the teams from Patton Corrections: Darrin Martin, Bobby Hawkis, Carl Eversol, and C.J. Eversole wrested the Law Enforcement Trophy away from their fellow Patton mates shooting a 54. With that score, they also won the overall tournament. 1st place senior division winners: Jim Stark, Bill Mills, Rene Johnstone, and Marcos Alonzo, who shot a 59. Taking honors for Most Honest (aka: Highest Score) team of Yevette Ramos, Toni Callicott, Laura Tolbrit, and Ryan ODonohue. Regardless of the score, everyone has a great time. Trading in a day of work for a day of golf made everyone a winner..

This year the center recognized Pastor Rob Zinn as our Outstanding Senior for his hard work and dedication to the community. Our many thanks to our major sponsors - San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, California Strategies, and Patricia Fischer. Also, thanks to all of our other various money and product sponsors, and raffle donors. Finally, wed like to thank all of the volunteers, golfers, and everyone else who helped support the center and honor Pastor Rob Zinn.
