This month we honor one of our “3 Days a Week” Volunteers. Doug Corwin tends to the garden area (and the rabbits) in our traffic circle and also helps with the food distribution program. Doug is 72 years old and is an Air Force brat who was born in Eglin Air Force Base, Florida. He bucked the Air Force trend and served in the US Navy for 6 years before moving to Abilene, Texas. While working in the sheet metal business, he met his wife, Susan, who now works at nearby Patton. After moving to California he persisted in the sheet metal business, bought an existing business, and continued with that before retiring and gifting the HSC with his talents. THANKS Doug for your dedication to the HSC.

With all this talk about everyone going green, St. Patricks Day took on a new meaning, as the Highland Senior Center celebrated one of the few holidays that celebrates the day someone died! Even then it is one of the most popular holidays, especially with partiers.

Well anyone who knows the center, knows that our crowd loves a party. Not only the companionship, but the food and fun. Everyone avoided getting pinched by making sure they wore green, somewhere on them, and dined on the traditional corn beef, cabbage, potatoes, rye bread, and of course, green jello. While we did not have green beer to wash it down with we did have Pennys homemade Irish Green Koolaide.

After everyone drank the koolaide, it came time to see who had the luck of the Irish. There was a trivia wheel of fortune, as a lucky few got to spin the wheel for a chance to answer a question about Ireland or St. Patrick, and win a prize. Many were called, but only a few knew the answer. However it was Joan Lewis lucky day after she won the 50/50 raffle.

Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate the day with us, as well as those who volunteered to help serve. Finally, \"Go raibh maith agaibh\" to Al and Claudia Wrona for the great songs.



Until next year:

May love and laughter light your days,

and warm your heart and home.

May good and faithful friends be yours,

wherever you may roam.

May peace and plenty bless your world

with joy that long endures.

May all life\'s passing seasons

bring the best to you and yours!
