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.

Featured Activity

In honor of the death of the patron saint of Ireland we celebrated with a party. To get things started partygoers first filled up on traditional corn beef, cabbage, and potatoes and the traditional green jelly.

Following the food came the fun. Just like in pubs around the world songs filled the air courtesy of our very own Al & Claudia Wrona. We had our very own version of Name that Tune. For those that couldnt we also had a sing-a-long with many Irish favorites including Wild Irish Rose. We also told Irish jokes as well as a bit of trivia. What city dyes it\'s river green every St. Patrick\'s Day? Chicago!

While we didn\'t hand out pots of gold we did hand out lots of great raffle prizes for a lucky few. Thanks to Costco for donating the cake, and to Humana for sponsoring the event. Until next year:

May the road rise to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face.

And rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
