This month we don’t just have one Volunteer to show kudos upon, we have two! Ed & Vivian Foster are our newest Thrift Store volunteers. They actually came to us thanks to Vivian who was a member. Once they retired following twenty-five years of retail experience, Vivian told Ed that they should help us out at the Thrift Store. That was all it took. They first started out by bringing in store shelves and then by arranging the stock. Now they work 1-2 days a week moving the items from our center to your house. Ed was originally from Fort Huron, Michigan, and came west to Long Beach thanks to the navy. It was fate that the two met at the Central City Mall (the Carousel mall to you youngsters) where they both worked, each taking turns as the other’s supervisor at various stores. They worked so well together they ended up with six kids, fifteen grandkids, and eight great-grandkids! Thanks to Ed & Vivian for arranging our store and for arranging your time to help us out.

Even though the holidays are over, the stress of the holidays (when the bills arrive) will linger for awhile more. The stress is bad enough, but imagine if you or someone you love is suffering from cancer or Alzheimers. At the Highland Senior Center we are ready to lend a helping hand. We have two support groups that meet once a month.

The Alzheimers support group meets on the 2nd Thursday of every month at 10:30 am, while the Cancer support group meets on the 1st Monday of every month at 2:00 p.m. Dont go through this alone. Stress is high enough at this time. Get the support you need to help you get through this difficult time. For more information call us at the Highland Senior Center at 909-862-8104.
