This month we’d like to give thanks to a familiar face, but one you might not know of in relation to the Highland Senior Center. Charles Roberts is the former editor of the Highland Community News, where he was a big supporter of the Highland Senior Center and would often visit the center to cover our events and activities. However when he retired at the end of 2017, he continued to support our center, but in a different capacity. Before retiring, he asked Jeff, the Outreach Director if we could use some volunteers, as he did not want to become bored. Well, he asked the right person, as he was immediately made a Transportation Assistance Program (TAP) driver. He volunteers to drive just about every weekday, and sometimes on weekends as well. Yet his helping us out doesn’t stop there. He also helps out in our Food Program, three days a weeks. He sorts outs the food we bring in and then helps us to pass it out to our seniors. We would also like to thank his wife, Myrna, who gives him time off from his retirement Honey Do list to help us out.

Featured Activity

We are looking for a volunteer for one of the easiest mechanic jobs ever! No spanners, floor jacks, or torque wrenches needed. However, knowing the difference between a dip stick and stick shift is desirable. All we are looking for is someone to come in at least once a week to check our vehicles. Just like the full service of old, check the tire pressure, fluid levels, note any dings, etc. If it helps we will even get you a star and we will trust our car to the man who wears the star.
