Saklan School students held a baked goods and hot chocolate sale to raise $780 to donate to the Lamorinda All-access Playground, to be built at the Moraga Commons. The Saklan Student Council picked this project for the students to support as their contribution to the community, according to Peter Metzger, the Head of School. The check was recently presented to Moraga Rotary President Kevin Reneau at a school assembly, who remarked that the broad support from the Lamorinda community made him very optimistic that construction could begin in the fall.
This project is sponsored by Rotary Club of Moraga to commemorate its 50th anniversary in June. The playground will provide exercise equipment for both able-bodied and special needs children, and will be promoted to special needs groups throughout the East Bay.
