Spring/Summer 2019 | FifeMagazine | 5 V isitors to Fife’s Community Center will recognize Brenda Garcia. She’s the employee who manages facility rentals, but she also runs the city’s senior programs. She also makes a mean salsa. Garcia has a fun summer of activities planned, including a trip to a Mariners game, a weekly Wednesday walkabout and so much more. “I have adopted most of the seniors here and I love the times I am able to sit with them, talk and share stories. The seniors that come here have touched my heart in many different ways, leaving little pearls of wisdom along the way. This is one of the best parts of my job and wouldn’t trade it for the world!” Want to hang out with Garcia? Check out one of these events.
