Volunteer Corner: George and Lorrie Moore

Ryan Salm/Sierra SunGeorge and Lorrie Moore

Sierra Senior Services, Canine Companions for Independence

(Lorrie) We’ve lived here full-time since 1992. We lived in Sunnyvale, Calif. We had a second home and we wanted to see if we liked it here year-round. I found it met our needs beautifully. Our home is called the party house.

(Lorrie) I love the people. They’re just as friendly as they can be. I love the changing seasons. I love the people.

(Lorrie) My husband and I both do taxes (for free) at the senior center. There’s a team of four of us in February. I do Meals on Wheels on Wednesdays. We’ve raised six puppies for Canine Companions for Independence in Santa Rosa.

(Lorrie) The people! For me personally, I was a public health nurse before I retired. Giving is important to me.

(George) I like to volunteer if I feel I can be (of) assistance. I’m on the airport advisory team. I could see the need for better communication between the community and the airport. My wife and I like to give back to the community.

(Lorrie) Our family is in Livermore and Rancho Cordova. We have two grandchildren, one that is in college and then his sister is a junior in high school. We also have a set of twins who are 5 years old in Livermore.
