This month we’d like to give thanks to Lee Lombard. Lee is one of our Transportation Assistance Program (TAP) drivers. In fact he is one of our top TAP drivers, consistently in the top three for miles driven and hours. He came to the center nearly five years ago, just looking to donate some books, when he happened to see a TAP flyer on the board. He asked the Front Desk person what TAP was, and she took him straight to the TAP coordinator. That was all it took, and he=s been driving ever since. He now drives every weekday, and even on weekends, sometimes taking 2 rides a day. He drives all over the Inland Empire which doesn’t leave him much time to explore the fun things our center has to offer, but he hopes to get involved soon. Originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, his father’s travels in the Air Force eventually brought him out to March AFB in Riverside, and he=s been here ever since. He did a stint in the Air Force, where he got trained in Military Pay, which helped him after he left, to get into Money Management, which he turned into a 30 year career as a banker and financial advisor. Now single, he has a daughter and two grandsons. Thanks Lee stepping up big time into this important program.

For those naysayers who thought our ongoing renovation was surely as a standstill, wed like to point out that slowly but surely, we are still fixing up the place. It might not pop at you as much as a new coat of paint or carpet, was we are sprucing up the place regardless.

We recently purchased some much needed equipment to be used for our various activities. We have now added a mobile TV stand with a lockable cabinet, to keep our equipment from growing feet and walking off. We now also have a ceiling pulldown screen in the game room / computer lab, as well as a huge tripod widescreen screen we can take from room to room, as well to outside events.

This is not the end of the work either. It is still a work in progress and yes, we are still planning on the addition on the sun room which will give us lots more room for more activities. So keep your eyes open and youll be amazed and the ongoing changes we have in store for you.
