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.

Featured Activity

Who says you can\'t teach an old dog new tricks! 30 of our seniors signed up for a class that would show them how to use their tablets and smartphones. As technology grows by leaps and bounds these days, things designed to make our lives easier, can be difficult to learn how to use. However, thanks to our friends from AT&T, Senator Mike Morrell, Assemblyman Marc Steinorth, and their staff members, they made it easy for our seniors.

The instructors brought in Ipads for each student to use and learn on. If someone brought in their own android based equipment, the teacher and helpers were more than ready to show them how to use that as well.

We hope to be able to have another class soon, as one cant really master this stuff in a few hours. It takes lots of practice, and the web is perfect for that!
