Moraga Movers Gives Thanks to Safety Personnel this Holiday Season
Submitted By Phillip Arth
Members of Moraga's safety community were honored at a holiday dinner, courtesy of Moraga Movers.
On Nov. 14, Moraga Movers treated members of the Moraga Police Department, Moraga-Orinda Fire District, and the town manager to a scrumptiously yummy Thanksgiving Dinner with all the fixings and pumpkin pie topped with whipped cream. Included in the attendance of 170 there was the entire police department along with many members of MOFD.
The theme for the evening was to give thanks to those who put themselves at risk on a daily basis to keep all of Lamorinda safe in our community. And Moraga Movers also recognized Town Manager Bob Priebe for his 37 years of service on the police force.
At the beginning of the evening Fire Chief Stephen Healy offered a few words of thanks followed by Police Chief Jon King introducing each member of his department. Then Battalion Chief Jerry Lee did the same for each member of the MOFD.
After the meal Priebe briefly addressed the crowd, which was followed by King offering a short power-point presentation on safety and pleading for everyone to lock their cars and houses and generally be vigilant. Then King raffled off a home security system that was contributed by the police department. Finally, Phillip Arth, president of Moraga Movers, who emceed the event, brought the evening to a close, again thanking all the safety personnel for their service.
Moraga Movers offers activities for adults aged 55-plus by keeping them engaged and active. On Dec. 5 the membership gathered at the Soda Center for celebration and a fine meal followed with entertainment by the world-renowned Saint Mary's chorale.
