ImageOur 2015 Community Crab Feed set an attendance record with nearly 100 attendees enjoying the all-you-can-eat banquet of fresh-off-the-boat crab, pasta and salad. fresh sourdough and dessert at Orinda's Masonic Lodge.  Tables were set with in festive red and white-checked cloths and each guest received a bib so they could really dig into their Dungeness!  Wine and cocktails flowed and a lucky raffle winner (Robert Berber's brother!) took home approximately 4 cases of wine (talk about an "instant wine cellar!").  As a consolation, guest Lisa Jorgens, won a "Best of Orinda" gift bag donated by the Orinda Chamber of Commerce.  Needless to say, a good time was had by all!  Congratulations and thank you to all who had a hand in making the evening a success: Jose Avelar, Sue Breedlove, Bran Yaich, and Charles Mounzer, with a special thanks to Marcela Avelar, Tony Sloane, Lance Cowles, Dave Goss, Jim Breedlove, Jack, Barbara and Evan Bontemps, Erin Bjornnson, Michael and Raya Walker, Sylvia and Eric Jorgensen.  A BIG thank you, also, to Frank, Gary and Tony of the Moraga Rotary for coming to our aid as bartenders for the evening.

At our JaImagenuary 14 meeting, Rich Knowles, President of the California Association of Grand Jurists, gave an enlightening presentation about our state’s Grand Jury system-what it is, how it works and who can serve.  California adopted the Civil Grand Jury model to allow for investigation of county issues of local concern.  They act  as unbiased citizenl “watchdogs” of local  government activities and operations.  Each county in California has a Grand Jury comprised of 19 volunteers selected by county judges through an extensive interview and application process.  See a copy of Rich’s presentation here.
