Volunteer Corner: George 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.
