PEAR AND WINE FESTIVAL
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 11 A.M. – 3 P.M.
MORAGA COMMONS PARK
Come to celebrate the 20 th year of this annual festival that helps us connect to Moraga’s
historic pear industry of the early 1900’s and the current thriving of the wine grape
culture. In keeping with the theme, eat and/or buy pear pies, watch a pie eating contest,
enter a pear recipe contest, and enjoy wine tasting with the Wine Growers Association.
FINALLY! A CENTRAL SITE FOR VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIESAt the core of Moraga is its spirit of helping out, whether with time or money, or both. This can be seen in the schools, Scouts, service organizations, the Rheem Theatre, Town Council and town commissions; people are always stepping up and into places to serve. At last, there is one place to find those places to serve, and to announce needs for volunteers to a wide audience. Moraga Citizens Network has established a “Craig’s List for Volunteers” right here on this website. Check it out, and come back often!!
