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.

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.
