Member of the Month:

Donna Estomo

This month we would like to recognize an avid Weekend Program attendee and all around wonderful human being, Donna Estomo! She told us she has been coming to program for about 3 years now.  Donna excels at always having a positive attitude and trying new things at the center.  Some of her favorite activities are making jewelry, pottery, and cooking at the Co-op!  Some other things we learned about Donna during our interview with her was that she enjoys listening to classical music.  Donna told us, “I like MHC because I can get out of the house and hang out with my friends.” 


Higbee Hikers

Higbee Hikers is a seasonal program offered July and August that explores our beautiful local trails. The group meets up at MHC and uses walking or bus routes to access the various trails in Whatcom County including Lake Padden Trails, the Interurban Trail, Stimpson Reserve and more. The program incorporates outdoor skills such as environmental stewardship, map reading and navigation, plant identification, healthy hiking snacks, and trail games. After a day on the trail with friends, the program ends with root beer, celebration and relaxation at Boundary Bay’s Garden. Higbee Hikers will be every Saturday in July and August from 11:30am-5:00pm and the cost is $15 a day.

New Weekend Program Manager—Taylor Arbuckle!

Taylor began at Max Higbee Center as a Recreation Leader in the fall of 2015. Her work in this community started in 2011, as a volunteer and coach for Special Olympics. Taylor is a student at Western Washington University and is majoring in Special Education with an endorsement in elementary education.  Taylor first found out about the Max Higbee Center through some of the Special Olympics Athletes that she was coaching. Her favorite thing about working at Max Higbee is being able to build relationships with the members. In her spare time, Taylor loves to explore the outdoors, spend time with her little sister, and be goofy with friends. ​We are thrilled to have Taylor as our new Program Manager and look forward to seeing some of her fresh ideas in programs!
