This month we’d like to shine the light on someone who really stepped it up during the COVID-19 shutdown. Mae Luerco had been volunteering her time in the food program before the shutdown, coming in and accepting donations, taking down names, and checking membership. She would also come in early and before the rush of the crowd, to help with setting up, cleaning tables, vacuuming, and emptying the trash. Once the shutdown happened as our lunch program evolved while still keeping the food program, Mae went into overdrive. While others stayed home, Mae came in 5 days a week to help package and pass out the lunches, making sure all the health regulations were maintained. She would then stay after to help out with the Walmart Food Program, unloading the food, separating and sorting, then handing that out as well. Again, once she was done, she would help clean up and take down the area. During all this, her perpetual smile and sweet attitude never wavered. Thanks Mae for making sure our seniors got something to eat.

Featured Activity

If you looked out at the parking lot, you might have thought all heck was busting loose at the center, what with firetrucks and cop car parked out front. However, it wasnt a bad thing. They came to the center to participate in a very special Wii Bowling match.

The firemen and police officers played against our Wii Bowling Leagues Top Team. Fire consisted of C. Valenzuela, G. Mowat, R. Acevedo, and John Hagen (a former deputy who subbed for them). The Cops consisted of R. Collins, E. Ogaz, M. Maker, and E. Popa. Now the fact that the seniors bowl every week, year round, while the firemen and cops havent Wii Bowled in years didnt discourage our safety personnel. And while the scores may not reflect it, they actually did well. Final scores were: Seniors 1747, Cops 1196, and Fire 1173. We hope to make this an annual classic. Who knows how it will turn out next year with a year to practice.
