THIS WEEK’S PROGRAM
Fortunately, two programs showed up for our Clubmeeting:
: We were pleased to have
from Canyon Construction Company totalk about the 100
Anniversary of the Moraga Barn,which was built in 1912. Extensive research was donebefore the remodeling was started on the old building,which had been used as a hotel, a grocery and tavern.
In restoring the building many “green” fe
atures wereused to make the project ecologically useful. A major community celebration is being planned for Saturday,September 15 to celebrate the 100
Anniversary. Thecommunity is invited to attend the Living History project!
Today we heard about many of thespecial programs of the Contra Costa County JuvenileHall Auxiliary presented by Executive Director,
The presentation was particularly significant toMoraga Rotary since we have conducted the ChristmasStocking project for more than 10 years in conjunctionwith the Auxiliary. The primary purpose of the Auxiliaryis to give support to the Department of Probation byoffering a variety of services which the Juvenile Hall isunable to provide, such as birthday gifts, Christmasactivities, games and other forms of special attention.The speaker described a variety of programs, includingmentoring, internships and scholarships for youngpeople which give educational and employmentencouragement. She introduced
current senior at St. Mary’s College who is a scholar
-ship student. Riley expressed his great appreciation for the opportunities which the Auxiliary has given to him.Upon graduation he hopes to attend law school.
Ms. Young also told about the “Hall Closet”
whichcollects and sells usable household and personal itemsto support financially the work of the Juvenile Hall Auxiliary. If you have items which are in good conditionand could be donated to the Hall Closet, call LindaCampbell, a member of the Auxiliary.The excellent program was closed with a very fittingpoem written by a youngster in the Juvenile Hall who is
hoping a “new” dream will give him a new chance.
