Jacquie Williams-Courtright is the owner of Alden Lane Nursery in Livermore. Her parents Jack and Ruth Williams founded the garden center in 1955. Jacquie’s grandparents came to Livermore in 1919.

Jacquie is the host of The Valley Gardener airing on community access television seen locally or online at TV30.org. The monthly program features seasonal gardening topics and has been on going for 25 years.

Jacquie earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Ornamental Horticulture at California State Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo. Jacquie became one the first in the state to become a California Certified Nursery Professional and is a great proponent of the program. She was honored by the state nursery association as its 1983 Young Nurseryperson. She was the third woman to serve as State President of the California Association of Nurseries and Garden Centers founded in 1917. She was the first woman to serve as the American Nursery and Landscape Association Retail Division president based in Washington, DC.

After graduating from Cal Poly Jacquie came home to the family business where she focused on marketing and advertising. She enjoyed working in every department and now heads the 61 year old company. Her involvement in the community and nursery association has been a constant in her life as it has for her husband Tom.

Jacquie married Tom Courtright on July 4, 1990. Tom is a second-generation garden center owner also. He owns Orchard Nursery & Florist in Lafayette, California. The couple chose the date as both garden centers were closed which enabled their garden center family to attend the nuptials.

Jacquie and her husband Tom were co-recipients of the Pacific Coast Nurseryman Award. Both she and Tom received the California Nursery Association’s CCN Pro and CANERS Hall of Fame awards, the first for promoting on going education through the certification program and the latter for supporting the state endowment for education and research.

Community Service Award Bio
Bob & Donna McKenzie from the Livermore Homeless Refuge


  
 
The Livermore Homeless Refuge Charter is to provide a clean, dry, safe and warm place for people who need a place to stay.

We are an emergency Refuge, operated by volunteers. The criteria to be open is 45 degrees or less and/or a 20% chance of rain. Our season operates from November 1st through April 30th.

We officially closed the Refuge on April 30th, however, we continue to hear from, help and interact with our homeless on a daily basis. We do the best we can to help them. Their summer needs are just as demanding as their winter needs.

LHR just completed its seventh year of operation.

We currently have four Host Churches on a rotating schedule of three weeks at each church and weekends at Presbyterian Church. The other Host churches include Vineyard Christian Fellowship, Holy Cross Lutheran, and Asbury United Methodist.

LHR runs a “pretty tight ship” with zero tolerance for alcohol, drugs, weapons, fighting or not following rules. Our rules are enforced. Sign in is between 6:00pm and 8:00pm. There are no in and out privileges. Lights out are at 10:00pm, including computers and cell phones. We awaken our guests at 6:00am. At 7:15am, guests must leave the Refuge, including the host church property.

LHR policy is to allow local Tri Valley homeless only. The majority of our homeless guests grew up in Livermore. Having said that, we’ve never turned away anyone that needed a place to sleep. We allow them to spend a night or two until they can move on to another safe place.

LHR had more women guests this year than in the previous years. We experienced a new, younger generation of homeless this past season.

LHR is not a soup kitchen, however, we feed everyone who comes and is hungry, whether they stay with us or not. We feed about ten to fifteen people a night not staying with us. Food to go is often asked for.

Through the years, LHR has helped several people in need.
We’ve paid security deposit and provided furniture for a woman who was homeless and a guest of ours.
We’ve paid bus and train fare for a number of our friends to return to their families’ out of the area.
We’ve paid car registrations, license and insurance.
We’ve paid for replacement ID’s at DMV for those needing them (a requirement to stay at LHR)
We replaced broken windows in vehicles, car batteries and car repairs for friends who live in their car.
We provide bus passes BART tickets and gift cards,
We’ve helped families with food, medicine, clothing, furniture, etc.
We’ve provided numerous bikes and locks for our homeless friends.
We’ve transported homeless to doctor’s appointments, hospital and court dates. We’ve paid for motels for people with special needs, sick or hospital recovery. We provide backpacks, warm coats, clothes, shoes, sleeping bags, blankets, hygiene items for anyone in need.

We have two local dentists that will do emergency work, pull teeth and/or fillings.
We have a barber who comes once a month to cut men and women’s hair.
We have two sources to “get a bike” and two bike repair people.

The above cost items have been funded by the generous donations from the “faith based community” of Livermore, Dublin, Pleasanton and San Ramon.

We enjoy the complete support of Open Heart Kitchen who generously makes trays of food for us on a nightly basis when we are open which allows us to provide food for those who did not have the opportunity to have dinner earlier. We were embraced by the families of the First Presbyterian Church who delivered complete, delicious meals every weekend we were open at their church.

We’ve learned through the years that the big challenge for the majority of our homeless is rain. It completely destroys them and their belongings. Once wet, items smell and take a long time to dry.

LHR completed its seventh year of operation on April 30th. We made new friends, saw old friends, helped, and served our most vulnerable. We sincerely want to thank everyone who helped us in any way to help our homeless, those folks struggling in their day to day life, who have little voice in our community. We were happy to be a part of success stories and we watched failure with sadness. Our “family” of homeless and our volunteers came together to form a bond that most of us will never forget.

Fact is, Livermore is good to the homeless!

We think everyone who was involved with our Refuge felt good about what they were doing and made some new “friends.” We’ve had several school age students providing assorted sleeping bags, socks, coats, food, hygiene collection drives as part of their school community service projects.

We gave sleeping bags, blankets and pillows used during the season to our friends for their summer use. We continue to donate them all summer long.

As we come to the end of our season, we leave with many different emotions, new friends, old friends, good memories and some not so good memories. We enforce rules and our homeless friends police themselves. We look back with laughter, happiness, sadness, disappointment, discouragement, courage and new memories, the good and the bad. We learned a lot along the way…..and we’ve only just begun.

We need to remember that being homeless does not define a person. It only defines a condition. Any one of us can become homeless. None of us should ever look down on anyone unless we are helping them get up.

While we are all aware that the services we provide are at best, “a band-aid fix,” for many of our friends, it is a life preserver.

We are grateful that we are a part of this viable ministry.

Thank you for choosing the Livermore Homeless Refuge for this year’s Community Service Award. We are humbled and honored.

With grateful hearts,
Donna and Bob
